    FOUND: Spinning rod and reel

    Fork in right hand unless the meal is something (steak, for example) that necessitates a knife. At which point knife in right hand and fork in left. (I do use left retrieve for spin cast and right for baitcast). This discussion reminds me of a story and warning to not overthink things. The whole town gathered at the square one Saturday afternoon. Seems Mr. Hodges' beard had finally grown long enough that the fella from the Guinness Book of World Records was coming to measure and possibly award a world record. After all was said and done, Mr. Hodges did in fact have the longest beard. At the conclusion of the press conference, a final call was made to ask if anyone had anything else to ask.. One little boy stuck up his hand and asked : "Do you sleep with your beard under or on top of the covers?" Mr. Hodges said he wasn't sure, but that he'd let the little boy know once he decided.. Mr. Hodges never got another good night of sleep....

    Table Rock 6-11-18 White River Arm

    I bought some live well lid vents a couple of years ago, and now practically beg others to get a set when we are visiting before and after trips. May be several versions out there, I don't know - and I am certainly not advertising for these in particular. Just wanted to give an idea. No more ice, the air flow takes care of everything. https://www.newproproducts.com/products.html

    Bass Must Be Biting

    I am not a good fisherman, and I caught 6 Saturday. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out they must be eating lol! 1. Beaver Shores in 5' from some flooded brush on a yellow square bill. this was around 9:45 Saturday morning (4-21-18). This particular girl was awfully white - not sure if that's because of the muddy water (it's awfully muddy around that part of the lake) or if she'd just come up from the deeper water. My hand help scale put her around 2.5 pounds, of course that's an uncertified scale. 15" spot. 2. Ford's Creek in 5' in front of flooded brush PB&J 3/8 jig 2:03pm - 13" spot 3. Ford's Creek 20' along the channel - red/orange Storm Deep diving crankbait (can't remember exact name - it's the one with the funky line tie that has a gap in the lip) 2:34pm -13" spot 4. Ford's Creek 5' out in front of flooded brush PB&J colored lizard on a wobble head - 3:12pm - 16" spot 5. Ford's Creek same deep diving crankbait between trees in 20' of water (I am starting to understand why folks like deep diving crankbaits)3:48pm 13" spot 6. Ford's Creek in front of flooded brush about 5' water 4:21pm 14" (maybe could've coaxed him to 15") smallie That's all I know. Seriously, I am not a good angler - if I can catch 6, most of the folks on here can likely catch 20. Water temps in Beaver Shores were 56-67 if I remember correctly and 52-54 in Ford's Creek. The times seem very exact because I looked at the time stamps of pictures (I try to send pictures to my 9 year old princess no matter the size) taken Saturday. Tight lines everyone, go have some fun while they are eating! Joe.

    White Bass Run

    Twin Bridges yesterday - saw a handful of 8-10" males caught on drop shot with live bait of some sort. They didn't want my white road runner. Was only there 90 or so minutes after work, so no idea how the morning bite is.

    Bank fishing Prairie Creek Area?

    Thank you for the ideas, sir They are older, as in 9th - 11th grades - somewhere in there. They haven't lived down here for that long. I mentioned Twin Bridges and the white bass run. They may try that. But, since they live in Rogers area, I thought I'd ask y'all about something up that way.

    Bank fishing Prairie Creek Area?

    Good afternoon everyone, I've got a buddy at work that wants to takes his two sons on a couple short fishing trips two or three afternoon this week. Any ideas on somewhere they can bank fish and hope to catch a few crappie or bass? I am having trouble thinking of anywhere that's publicly accessible, and would like to help him out. Thank you. Joe

    Bass Tourney - Big Indian

    Received an entry in the mail last night for 3-31-18 at Table Rock out of Big Indian. Thought I'd share with y'all in case anyone wants to fish it. I don't know where Big Indian is. Apologies for the terrible pics - it was early this morning and I wasn't feeling like a photographer...

    Anyone else see this?

    Considering the general tone of this particular thread, I had to do a double take on my front page as I thought "What in the world did I Google one day???" Then, reality hit and I felt better

    Going to get muddy?

    Ease back in to the water with that shoulder, brother... Had mine rebuilt (cut all muscles in cuff to bone, then reattached alternating sides: staples, eye screws, etc.) several years ago. First couple of trips were VERY painful. Didn't make me come in any sooner, just had to whine a little more than anticipated once I returned home Holler if I can be of any help - fishing one-winged is tougher than folks think.

    Cold weather to fish in

    This is the longest off the water stretch for me that I can remember in maybe 10 years? I haven't been out in may 6 or 7 weeks. I am planning to put in at Prairie Creek in the morning and run to Indian Creek. Figure the boat has been in the garage so long that I need to make a little run.

    Question on Distance

    Or.... If you are really bored, you can make your own map. I would say 22.78450 miles :-)
