Current Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 6-30-16 White River Outfitters Guide Service

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 30th, 2016


It all started innocent enough with a swirl and a swing and miss as the Big Kentucky charged the 90 series Whopper Plopper, don’t know if her vision was blurred from a late night with the boys or just mistook the speed of the projected food item.  Didn’t matter as she came back with a vengeance the second time and just “Bone Jarred It.”  Water blew in every direction and the Daiwa Steez sang line thru the guides of the Falcon Cranker.   It was not what she thought or hoped it was.  The durn thing had stickers and she had a face full that she really did not want.  Kind of like a Griz. grabbing a Porky, Just not what she expected.   This was a tricky catch as there were lots of deep dock cables to be avoided and the big spotted fish had in mind to get home to them.  Kris played it cool and kept the pressure on.  A couple of simi-deep runs and a pole vault jump and this beauty was posing for the OA forum.

Table Rock Lake: Little Night Trip 6/26

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 29th, 2016

Went out around the house for a couple hours about 10PM.  Just dragging plastics and jigs.  Found a few here and there.  Gravel bite picked up the later it got. Ran into a pretty good brown fish in the process.  It sure is nice not getting your guts knocked out by wake boats.

Fun on the Osage River

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 27th, 2016


About a 2 weeks ago the  brother and I decided to go out on the lower Osage and try a little largemouth fishing. We’ll we struck out on the largemouth but did manage to get into a couple hybrids by the lock and dam.  The water was just barely flowing over the wall so it was perfect conditions.  (I think they are hybrids anyway? I’m not real educated on my hybrids, whites, and stripers.)  We only caught 2 but we didn’t fish long. So Saturday evening we decided to give it another shot. read more…

Table Rock Lake: 36 Hour TR Trip – Dam Area + Intruder in MY Cove

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 27th, 2016


Brother and I were able to get away and come down for a short weekend trip. Saturday morning tried a little of everything (plopper, spook, jig, ned, 10″ worm, 10XD, spoon) with very little success. Spent a good amount of time trying to spoon docks but they weren’t having it. Not even one bite on the spoon thus Saturday morning/day was a bust. I have a habit of trying to force feed fish on what I WANT them to eat…not what THEY want to eat. read more…
