Welcome to Mo. Northwood. When I first moved here from Mn, Kimberling City is where I started at.

Hey Barry. Mark Twain Is still very high. I drive over Salt river bridge on hwy 61 everyday. The water was over the banks a few hours ago. I talked to someone a few days ago and they said as of last Friday the lake was only 10 feet below what it was at its highest level this summer. I enjoy the fall crappie fishing but I am afraid it may not be any good this year.

Am I the only one left from MO? Trees are starting to get some color down here and we are supposed to get some rain in the next few days. I'm going to hit the trout park one more time before they close for the year tomorrow, hopefully I'll catch a few! Everyone have a good one!

Hey Barry,

Not many members down there in MO keeping you busy. Say, any tips for someone getting ready to head down to Table Rock looking for crappies and largemouth this time of year? Any specific patterns one might look for? Are the crappies still hanging out passed the breaklines in open water or have they started to migrate back to shallows? Bass going shallow or deep down there lately? Cranks, plastics, dropshot, top water, spinner baits?

I don't get to Tablerock, but if it's like any other lake around here the crappie are headed to the back of the coves to fill up on shad! After that you should be able to find them along the bluffs. What I've read online they are catching bass on cranks and topwaters, but you can NEVER be sure about FISH! Good Luck!

    • Thanks for bringing that to my attention.  I am now going to add this quick connector to the coax side and plug that into the wall plate for quick on and off.
    • I have had the Ion for two season's.  It works as good if not better than any auger I have previously owned.  The battery did not show any signs of degradation in it's second season,  I will soon see what the battery does in season three.    I use it in a 9 hole wheel house, opening 7 of the holes everytime I have gone fishing.  Additionally, I go outside the house and always pop open a half dozen extra holes.  I have never had to worry about the charge when setting up for each trip. The battery (older version) does all of those holes including reversing the auger on each hole to remove as much slush as possible.  It usually runs longer in reverse than it does drilling the hole.    I often intentionally drill old holes when I am outside to see if I can experience any lose in power or battery life and haven't had any complaints yet.   20 plus inches of ice hasn't change any of these results.   Since the new battery also works in the older version of the auger I was thinking about buying the newer battery but after some thinking about it there isn't any reason to spend the $200 for a backup that I don't currently need (knock on wood).
    • I was gonna go catfishing but then I remembered I had all my teeth 
    • Why do you guys take pictures with the bait?
       

       
    • No beer in a boat has to be the 2nd stupidest law in the history of the world next to when Wisconsin had the no trolling law   I believe he was talking more about the coverage than the care.
    • The new X battery does work with the previous model for sure.  It gives you the same +60% efficiency with either unit.
    • If you plan on reopening any holes, go with the Ion.  The Lazer blades don't reopen holes  
    • I am planing on getting an electric auger and I was trying to decide between the new ION X or strikemaster lithium lazer.  I know no one has experience with the new Ion but wondering how the older models have been holding up (does the batteries still hold a good charge) and kinda the same think with the strikemaster.  I have seen the electra lazer and not to impressed with it that is why I am wondering if the lithium is any better.  Hope you guys can help    Thanks Bobby
    • If I am thinking of this right you will plug that directly into your camera and have a coax cable running to the wall plate then? If that is the case the only thing I can think of is it will be a pain to plug and unplug the wire when you want to use it. If you are keeping it hooked up all the time then I don't see a problem.
