Saw more pelicans today than I caught bass, there was this group of 5 cruising around Viney.  They had their heads tucked in and the would just kind of cruise around, you can see the little wake they are putting out.  Saw another flock of seven of them circling around like vultures.

Caught 8 spotted bass, 2 were keepers and 2 short walleye.  I don't know why I can't catch a keeper sized walleye or why I catch at least one short one every time out.  

All on 2.8 Keitechs with one wallie on the Ned.

WT 42, but talked to a buddy that saw 48.

There are no fish in Bull Shoals. Plus the roads to it make you carsick. And it’s ugly. No harter house meat near it. Terrible darn lake. Just stay over yonder on TR.

Launched at Cow Creek at 0630. Air temp 37 water 41.83

Just brought a floater and stick bait.  One keeper K on the floater and one decent LM on the jerk bait. 

Lots of moss on the dock floats, hanging 10' and lots on the ramp. 

15' visibility at Cow, maybe more. Fished from Cow to Mill Creek, just above KC.  Had lots of help, at 10:30 there was a boat on every pier of the KC bridge. Don't even see that in the Summer. Someone on every Bluff end, and I counted 5 boats in Hoot Owl. Really just insane for a mid week 1st of March. 

New normal. 

The amount of housing starts in that stretch is simply staggering, and dozers running and clearing home sites is something that is hard to believe unless you see it

Some of the new homes going up from Mill Creek to point 6 are simply mansions and they are going up by the dozen 

Pulled into some creeks early and there were millions of shad from on the surface to 40' deep. Only saw a dozen or so in the death throws

Pulled out at 11 and the surface temp was 42.84.

Rick Lisek caught this 7.14 yesterday on a megabass and had a 6.12 on a floater to go with it. That's the right kind.

Nice one!  Tons of new houses being built here in Bella Vista too.  It got pretty busy here with new construction in 2006-2007, but this is many more times that.  New houses sell before they are finished.  

More pressure on the community lakes here too, I was out today and had a decent morning on the jerker, but had a lot of company.

good news bad news.  good news is it was not the powerhead.  bad news it was the lower unit.  other good news is doug might have a good used one and put some new seals in it and be back on my way.

Cool, better the LU than the powerhead.
