Launched at 10 AM today, there was some light rain in Bella Vista early so I decided to wait it out, but it didn't make much difference as it was drizzly and cold at the lake when I got there.  Air temp 39, water temp 40 but not much wind.

Fishing was kind of funny today, lots of blank time with short bursts of some fish on every cast.  When I found them, they were schooled up.  Put 20 in the boat with 9 being keepers, couple of 17" spots were the biggest.  

Best spots were near the mouth of a couple of coves around sparse timber, fish were in that 15-25 foot range.  Even split on fish caught on 1/8 oz ned rigs and 2.8 Keitechs on 3/16 oz heads.  Slow drag on the bottom.

I'm not seeing any shad kill on the upper end and not seeing many live ones either.  Not seeing any suspended bass either, the few I see on sonar are on the bottom.

Didn't see any ice anywhere.

Quite a few boats out, buddy of mine said he heard there are some tourneys this weekend.

Quillback - your going to scare people away from the OA tournament catching fish like that. I know of several people blanking lately and you can’t keep them out of your boat. Well done!!!

Anglers in Action was today on the Rock 

The Good News: The Table Rock Lake tournament is a GO for Saturday, Feb. 27th, going out of the Port of Kimberling Resort at 7am.

Maybe they were practicing? And apparently someone else is so they can grab that coveted wooded plaque come the 20th of March! 

I will have to read the official entry rules and see if there are any pre fishing penalties 😎
