  1. In my experience, fishing is better when water is rising. Fish shallow in and around all the new flooded bushes and structure.
  2. Took the family down Branson to eat and decided to throw in the fly rod. We had a great time below the dam. Caught a dozen in 45 mins and left to eat dinner. My wife enjoyed taking pics of the twins fishing. One enjoyed catching trout with me, the other was obsessed with rescuing stranded sculpins from the water dropping and i was most excited about one catch in particular. Might even hang it in the wall, lol. I caught a famous Doty trout.
  3. I would plan on there being several lining the banks at sunset. It thins out as it gets later in the evening
  4. I have been helping Nathan age and track their growth rates. A few of those 1998 otoliths came from me. What is even more impressive than those fish living 20+ years is the average growth rate of the ones they are stocking now is 3-4 lbs a year! The 2013 fish are averaging 26-29 lbs right now. Would like to add that this very rough data of what i am seeing in my catches. MDC should release their findings after their study is complete and it will be a lot more accurate.
  5. Yeah, that road launch is out of play for me at this level. Figured the levels should be getting pretty close for shadow rock. When i was launching of the road up in Swan creek, the level was 688ish and my graph showed 8 ft deep as i idled over the road at the concrete bridge in Swan creek.
  6. Is shadow rock ramp open?

    Shad

    Anyone know if there are any licensed bait dealers selling shad in the hot springs area?

    Shad

    So what are the guides doing at ouachita? There is no shad in that lake. They used to go to Oklahoma or the Arkansas river to get bait?
  10. That's awesome footage! They really are beautiful fish.
  11. Well, I accepted the challenge of finding them elsewhere and luckily succeeded. Completely different end of the lake and they were bruisers. Biggest was 13.2 on the digital scale, smallest was 10.6
  12. All the ramps are great. Locations just vary depending on the time of year and what you are fishing for. Crappie are on the banks everywhere and biting great right now.
  13. These are from a couple of days ago. They are starting to do their top water thing. I won't divulge exact spots, but just cruise until you see 8 boats with 5-6 people each in overalls. They have been following my boat since they crowded me at the weir. You might as well just butt in as they have no problem doing it to me or anyone else. As soon as anyone catches a hybrid, they will move to within 20 ft of you and cast lures within 3 ft of your boat. I don't think they are trying to be rude, I think it is just not considered rude in their culture? Better find them quick. The last 2 spots they d

  15. Back in coves. Probably close to the bank right now. Or look for them flipping on the surface. Cut bluegill and creek chubs will work better than livers.
