Okay guys..........Scott was good enough to give me a hint as to sites that might give information on flow rates at the Spillway at Truman and dang if he wasn't right! I've got both of them and if anyone wants em.... holler at me... (well don't holler, I probably won't hear you). Just drop me a note that it's something you want and I'll send them to you or post them. There's also information on where to find the Lake of the Ozarks flow rates which would have an effect on the truman water. So even if Truman isn't flowing for the turbines, if the LOA is flowing....... follow me? I'm also working on a way to deliver baited hooks to the channel without dislocating your shoulders! (sometimes I hate being an engineer) Not that I mind flingin 6 to 10 oz.'s of weights and bait, but gheesh wouldn't it be nice to drop your bait dang near dead on where you want it? Just had an epiphany..... while watching the water today and I'm going to build one and see if it works.
