Quillback’s Table Rock fishing report, May 13

Posted by Phil Lilley on May 14th, 2014


The largemouth were really biting today, caught a bunch of bass, close to 50 and I think probably 35 or so were largemouth.  Cool, cloudy, breezy day had them up on the banks and biting.  No big ones, but caught several spawned out females that were in the 2.5 – 3 lb. range and quite a few in the 13 -16″ size.  read more…

Fishingaddiction’s Table Rock fishing report, May 1-4

Took some much needed time off from the Salt Mine and fished with my brother in law, my nephew, and his friend in the Kimberling City area last week.  No, all of us were not in the boat at the same time.  Fishing shifts were taken, the ones that weren’t fishing had chores to do.  Didn’t know what impact the cold front that blew in early last week would have on the catching, but kept an open mind and figured something out.  I can tell you now the front had little to no effect on the fish, other than it might have pushed them somewhat deeper.    read more…

Table Rock fishing report(s), April 25

Posted by Phil Lilley on April 26th, 2014

Bill Babler ~ Shell Knob, Mo. Picked up the boys, Jerry and Larry Horseman this morning out of Quail Cove as they are fishing the Shriners derby this weekend. When I launched at the knob, the surface temps had dropped from my reading at Baxter from 67 degree yesterday afternoon, to a chilly 55 degree at the ramp. Air temps this morning at the Shell Knob bridge were 39 degree. Clear as a bell and high pressure to boot with not a breeze one or a cloud in the Azure Blue Sky. read more…
