Got out for 2 hours after the rain this morning.  Found fish in 15 fow on chuck rock point.  Caught a dozen with two keepers (KY and SM).  I knew a neighbor was fishing in the area so called him and he showed up and caught 8.  I used drop shot with night crawlers and he used drop shot with a purple flake short worm.  It was nice and cool until the following happened – read more…

Meramec River: Additional data on smallmouth population

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 17th, 2017

Meramec River Smallmouth on OzarkAnglers.Com

Table Rock: Downlake from Shell Knob 6/14

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 15th, 2017


Traveled over to Shell Knob today and launched at the Bridge.  Fished with a fellow Bella Vistan, Mike.  Mike has been an occasional fisherman during his life, but in the last few months has taken up bass fishing.  He has a little problem with his casting as in distance control.  I think we had to go back into the trees at least a half dozen time to get his jigs back.  There were times I wished I had a machete (for the vegetation, not for Mike). read more…

Taneycomo: Powersite Dam – dropped baffles

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 14th, 2017


Not sure exactly what they’re called but the air filled structure that stretches across the top of Powersite.  This shows 2/3’s are stuck down, not inflated.  They’ll need to be fixed soon.  Will have to drop Taney way down to do so, for a day or less. read more…
