Ok Guys,

  We made some progress last year on the Kentuckies with the new 12" length for Stockton.

Let's Review some facts..................for lakes with the 12 " Kentucky length...............

Bull Shoals----------12"

Lake of the Ozarks---------12"

Montrose Lake---------- 18" Oops !!!!!  Oh Yeah, they have Florida strain. yeah for them !!!!!!!!!!

Norfork Lake------------------- 12"

Pomme De Terre----------------- 13"

Stockton-------12"

Truman---------- 12"

Table Rock..............  I am ashamed to print this........................ 15"

Do you get my point???

Phil and others,

 Thank you for pointing out my oversight............. kind of................... just letting my opinion be known about my JOY concerning the ruling for Stockton and supporting this regulation by showing it now falls in line with so many other lakes.

I would be happy for this to go to the Table Rock Forum even though I don't read that one.

AND, as long as it will be going there...................  with the "invention" of tournaments that "weigh in" small bass ( like the Kentuckies at Table Rock) there is a new name I have heard applied to Table Rock. "Guppy Lake". When I was a young man I never would have dreamed anything like this ....................

I completely agree. I wish that Table Rock would lower the limit on KYs to 12" and I'm not really sure why they haven't yet.

I would agree with changing the TRL length limit if I knew the growth rate and densities for spotted bass on TRL. If the GR were more rapid than the other lakes with LOW densities I would be opposed. That's why we hire biologists! But, it's not a bad proposal/question from the standpoint of regulation uniformity.

Olfishhead,

  From what I have seen and what my buddies tell me the Growth rate is: TERRIBLE !!!!

 AND the density is: one Kentucky per 1 cubic inch of water. Nearly all of them under 15".....  ( occasionally there is a freak of nature that makes it....)

( Sorry, as I know this is the Stockton Forum. Phil, please feel free to post my comments on the Table Rock Forum.. )

The K pictures I see in the TRL forum have them all over 15".  😎

I don't have any buddies that are biologists but when they tell me biologist stuff I just nod my head. Most of the time it makes them feel important and I get a laugh.

3DHusker,

  Yep I believe that wholistically !!!!  From what a biologist told me I know that it is all 4% of the total lake population............

ILL say last year i caught a lot more over 15" than any other year.  I would also like it to go to 12" though. Those little guys are pretty tasty. 

 

 Didnt they do a study and say that it takes 5-7 years for a spot to get to 15 and by that time they are getting close to the end of their life cycle
