Shell Knob ramp

Recommended Posts

I have never fished that for up the White (Shell Knob).  I am curious regarding the ramp at the bridge.  Does it get full (no parking left) after first light during the week this time of year.  I think I read here that it does in the Spring time but how about now??

Thanks

Bobby

Monday is tournament day. Yes it is busy by 5am. 

Rest of the week you are fine 5-5:30. 6 is pushing it. Lots of parking and a great dock. 

Past 6 the wake boats start showing up and the bottom parking spaces get filled and they just take to long fiddle farting trying to get all the kids and a weeks supplies in the boat

Launch on the upstream side as the downhill side is a bit slanted and caved off. It’s a two rig ramp, but 1 at a time works way better. 

Like all the other ramps it used to be easier till they put all the riprap in. It does help on erosion here however as Shell Knob is the wake boat capital of Table Rock. 

Good Luck

you're kidding, it can't be worse than Indian Point!  Do the wake boats go down stream or upstream?

Thanks

Bill (hope you and wife are better by now)

Off topic PS - a friend and his wife went on the Alaska cruise trip thing - they got off at one of the stops and were checked for Covid to get back on the boat and 16 or the 32 getting back on tested positive and were just left there being told to get a hotel or flight home.  The cheapest room was $400/night and the flight was high too (I forgot) - they did not get trip insurance because it was too expensive too - $800 I think he said

Yes, Shell Knob has more wake boats than Indian Point.  3 of the biggest dealers on the lake right here in town. Also lots of big Cobalt’s 

Its crazy on the COVID right now. Talked to the Dr. one  day last week and he thought 90% of the US population had had it in some form. Lots and lots of folks not even knowing they had it.  

Lots of folks have had it multiple times even being fully vaccinated 


Being elderly we did everything we could besides locking ourselves in the house and still got it. 

It’s gone from my head, but I still have a very sore throat with coughing.  Becky seems to be doing way better, I’d say she is within a few days of being over it.   Kind of comes and goes.

Most traffic is between the Kings River and Big Creek, just past Campbell Point. 

Numbers are probably comparable to Indian Point but water is way skinner up here. 

I’ll PM you.

Bobby B, you fished with me out of Holiday Island. Although it is not immune from wake boats, there are fewer.

BTW, I hope you all understand what we have to do. Spray where they breed.

Randy, we caught a really nice walleye and better yet you cleaned it and gave it to me - and then gave me a Falcon rod you no longer use which I still use today - thanks again.  Bobby
