  1. Is the Greenfield ramp open?
  2. And next week MLF is in town
  3. It was 42 water temp that morning at Indian Point. We moved from there around 10 and put in up past flat creek in the James and it was 48 around the ramp in 8 feet. Of course, our reading was surface temp.
  4. K, cool. Sasquatch tracks was my other thought.
  5. Was on a shallow flat near McCord yesterday (Sunday 2/24) and noticed what looked to be vacant beds. I know it's hard to tell in the picture but they were all about 12-18" across. What species do you think is making these already? Water temp 48 degrees. A few hundred yards downstream, in deeper water (3-6 ft), was a school of carp and gar.
  6. Had one over 5 in practice on Friday, caught lots of 2-2.5lbers Saturday and Sunday. #ShouldaBeenHereYesterday Lost a fat 4+ on a dock cable Saturday afternoon. She was in the bottom of the net and jumped/shook the Bull Shad and waved goodbye all in a split second 🤮 Weighed a 3.7 during the last time slot Sunday and put it on the trailer between monsoon rains and lightning. Props to Oliver Ngy, love his channel. Every boater we met was pleasant despite the weather and stingy bite near the dam and it was good to see so many kids fishing with their parents.
  7. I'm in, staying at Point Randall fishing with my uncle. I think it's been since before Memorial day that I've fished at LOZ. Ready to get back. Be safe and good luck to all you OAF's fishing this weekend.
  8. I think we need supplemental stocking of those great lakes Gobies. Not sure if their introduction in the 90s has hurt the ecosystem but it doesn't seem to have hurt the gamefish.
  9. I've been in a pedal fishing yak since May (Native Propel 10') It's ~34" wide and plenty stable to stand and fish from. I've switched from tournament co-angling the BFL, Costa, Bassmaster Opens to tournament kayak bass fishing and have loved it. I'm getting to fish some new (to me) water and live and die by my own choices. The sport is exploding in popularity and after being a part of it for a few months, I see why. Not only is it an active, positive, welcoming community, you have the chance to win some serious JACK! The Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) national championship qualifiers compete for $100,000. The River Bassin' Trail series will hold their national championship near Waynesville this year with a prize purse of $75k! Jeff Mellencamp, (Osage Beach firefighter) is the face behind Lake of the Ozarks Kayak Bass Fishing and was a huge help to me when I started to think about getting into the sport. He's also plum crazy for fishing the big bass bash out of his kayak 🤪 Here are some local clubs if you have the urge to get into the sport competitively... Mo-Yak KAMO O.R.A.T.T. MKFS Several local kayak anglers have YouTube channels as well; Weekend Warrior Fisherman Brian Hillman - Ozarks Yak Angler MoFishYaker Ozark Smallmouth Alliance Tight lines! PM me if you have any questions about kayak derby fishing. I'm a noob at this but I'll try my best to help. RogueAgent
  10. I cooked Rock N Ribs in Springfield Saturday and stayed at Point Randall that night. Got up at 4:30 Sunday morning just as the rain began... it didn't stop. all. day. long. I weighed a 3.04 and a 4.08. The 3 came on a black n blue chatterbait with a blue flake zako trailer burning it in front of dock slip openings in McCoy Branch Cove. The 4 came on a French Pearl Megabass in Lick Branch Cove. I don't have any fish pics but here is a pic of our 3rd place ribs.
  11. There were three more over 20lbs on Saturday in the AiA tourney - 3/24 Rank Name Weight 1 Marcus Sykora - Bill Davenport 26.75 2 Steve Wilson - Brad Sayre 22.65 3 Ben Verhoef - Rob Bueltmann 20.53
  12. Look through the history of this forum for that time frame. Also, go to bassresource.com and enter the word "ozarks" in the search box, then look at all the tournament reports for late April-May. Some of these reports will help you get general ideas on what the fish were doing at that time of year. There will be several large tournaments each weekend leading up to yours, watch for those reports as well. (Big Bass Bash, FLW Central BFL, etc.) . Fish your springtime confidence baits and have fun! Good luck!
  13. We threw the tackle box at them and found a decent bite on squarebills, wiggle warts and Spro Rock Crawlers. Nothing over 3lbs, sadly. Shad colors, anything with orange belly, dark red seemed to work. We caught some 3-4" gizzard shad that were stacked up on the warmest banks in Indian. You could feel them hitting your line as you pulled through the school and there would be one snagged on a treble when you lifted the crankbait out of the water. The bass bite was light. Felt like a wet sock or clump of leaves and then it would load up. Good luck! Post pics for us poor fools who have to "work". Cabin Fever! #StruggleIsReal
