    Welcome and congrats. What part of the lake did you hit up? I should be headed up that way within the next few weeks.

    We were in the upper end in the beaver creek area. I expect it to improve over next few weeks. Thanks

    We went out yesterday afternoon by Beaver Creek boat ramp with the kids. Fish were biting as fast as the bait hit the water. All sunfish but it was FUN. They were hitting ANYTHING that hit the water, worms, grubs, power bait, dough bait, grass hopper my son caught and I had a few on small curl tail grubs on a few colors. I also teased out a 2 1/2lb lg mouth on a 3 inch Rapala top water lure.

    Is the water level getting down to something reasonable? I noticed they have slowed down on the discharge rate.

    They are still trying to get it down. There has been about no hope of fishing the spillway unless you use an engine block as a sinker. The overall lake level is ALMOST at summer pool, it is about 1.5 feet high still. The spillway output was finally cut to about 970 cfs but it has been about 5 times that with water well over the sidewalk and at one time only about 5-8 steps were out of the water.

    Hello my boc brothers! some buddies and I get together and toss $20ea. in a hat and have a small tournament for the cash and bragging rights. We thought we would invite a few more to our get together. We cook a few dogs before we head out and make up some B.S rules. If interested in joining us shoot me out a PM. and I'll get some info to you.
    Understand that this is just a few good old boys having some fun!
    No series pros welcome.. ( we would hate to see you get your feelings hurt:smile2:)
