  1. Never had the pleasure to meet Bo but really enjoyed reading his posts here. His passing is a huge loss for our forum and the fishing community.
  2. I can definitely hear it. Hope they get something figured out for you.
  3. Try to get a video of it if you haven't already. Show that to Garmin to try and help them figure out what is going on.
  4. For the fishing I was doing during our trip the livescope really isn't a lot of help. If fish are right on the bottom you really can't see them unless they are moving around. With that said there were a couple times I saw suspended fish and picked up a jerkbait and caught some. There was another time I was able to keep track of a big ball of shad pretty shallow moving around and caught 4 walleye and a couple bass by throwing a jerkbait in and around the shad ball. There were other times I just shut the livescope off as it wasn't doing any good to have it on.
  5. Little late getting this posted as was really busy after getting home. Anyway wife and I were down from4-23 till 5-6. Since it is her vacation she doesn't like to get up real early so most days we didn't get out until 9-9:30 and would fish 5-6 hours. We had some good days and some not so good days. The not so good days were always the bright sunny days with little to no wind. Also didn't fish in the rain any. Yeah I know we should have but we didn't. Ned was the bait that we caught most fish on. I did catch a few on a jerkbait and crankbait(one day). The jerkbait did produce some walleys too. I caught 6 eyes but only one was a keeper size (21 1/2") the rest were 16-17 7/8ths. Most days we caught somewhere around 25-30 with 1/2-2/3 of the fish being keeper size. The exception to that is the bright sunny/no wind days that I mentioned being our worst days. The sunny days we still would catch around 20 or so but most all of them were SMALL and it was a grind to catch them! One of the sunny days we could't get anything going around Kimberling so ran up the white and found spots and a couple walleye on flat gravel main lake point. Those fish were on ned as well and were in 15-20 feet of water. As for the fish around Kimberling. We had our best luck using ned rig on secondary gravel and small chunk rock points. Our fish were mostly in the 14ft range give or take a little. The one day I caught some on the crankbait it was 8-10ft. With ned it was cast and let it sit for a little bit then drag a few inches to a foot and let it sit for a few seconds and repeat. Our best day our best 5 would have been 14 3/4-15lbs; didn't weigh one largemouth that would have been close to 3lbs give or take a couple ounces. The other 4 were smallies that went 3-2, 3-1, 3-1 and 3-0. The other days would have been 13-14lbs; except for those sunny/no wind days then we would only catch 2-3 keepers. Caught a couple BIG bluegills and Goggle eyes on the ned too. As always; all the fish we caught including the walleye, gills and goggle eyes are still swimming.
  6. That is for my livescope. I have the transducer mounted on a separate pole and the foot pedals control turning the livescope transducer. It is called The Livescanner. They are out of Hillsboro, MO.
  7. I don't remember one fish not looking really healthy. It was great to see that!
  8. We were targeting smallies. The largemouth came in the same places we were smallie fishing. The largemouth did come on the shallower depths of what we were fishing or when we would try shallower in the 6-8ft range. Did catch a couple real shallow like 3-4ft.
  9. Definitely a couple weeks at TR is fantastic!! We love the area! Our next trip is in the other direction; will be heading north to SD and the glacial lakes for some smallie fishing.
  10. We are hoping to get to a few games again this year. We really like the crown club seating but they seem hard to find right now.

  12. This is just great! 😔 We had to go home early in 2017 and don’t want to have to leave early again because we can’t find a ramp to put in on. We finally gave up in 2017 when port of kimberling’s ramp, parking and access road were underwater. Part of the campground was underwater too. We were at bull in 2019 when it started to rain and flood too. Went home early then too. Really getting old to get flooded out wherever we go. 😔🤬
  13. Yes there is another gated ramp in the campground across the cove from the marina dock. They have a combination lock on the gate and give out combination to the campers when checking in. combination changes every month.
