    According to the lake website they are projecting .10" rise per day. Seems like it was later than this in the past that they raised the lake. I hope this gets those cats going, but unfortunately it looks like winter type weather is back with us for a few days.:sad:

    I noticed their forcast showed it going up the next couple days.I'm not sure if they're ready to start filling it back up or if it's because they are generating some power at Truman.It may just be temporary,it seems a little early yet compared to the past.

    Well the weather is supposed to be heading back down below freezing within the next few nights.Maybe snow Tuesday.I guess I'm to blame,with the spring weather a few days ago I thought we were in the clear and went and shaved off my winter beard.LOL!!! That's just like washing the car and causing rain.I guess I jinxed us.The old timers said St. Patty day is the day to plant taters but I'm glad I didn't and I'm glad.I mighta brought in a blizzard.Maybe I would be safer to leave the county till it warms back up. I would hate to get lynched ;)

    I usually don't shave it till mid april...but my youngest grandson of 11months was spending a couple days with me.After the second or third time of him winding his little hand up in there and then pulling for all he's worth...finally with tears in my eyes and him a fist full of hair, I thought it was close enough to spring.LOL!!! I went in the bathroom and took the old shears and then razor to it and come out.The look on his face was priceless.I think he had forgot what I looked like under there cause he didn't quite reconize Pop-Paw when I came out,it took him a few min. before he would come to me.

    YEA,I didn't get the haircut yet,Don't want to cause one of those spring blizzards like back in 78 or 79 whenever it was.My hair grows pretty fast,my profile pic was back in late august or early september and my hair was above my ears and pretty short but now it's past my shoulders.In my younger days it was pretty common for it to be down about the middle of my back,stayed that way about 20 years but after 40 I started keeping it pretty short in the summers but come the first frost I start thinking about hunting and cold weather and I kinda get the old Grizzly Addams look before winter is over. :cool: Maybe Ken will start talking to me again since I am still trying to prevent that blizzard LOL!!! Besides I don't think either one of us will want to turn loose of any money for an arbitrary mediator :D

    Yea,it's still down at 654.18' right now.That's almost 6' below normal pool.It should start to rise in the next couple weeks but we need some rain pretty bad.

    I would post water temp. but the site I usually get it from says 0 degrees right now,somehow I think that is off by about 48 or so. LOL!!

    They actually dropped it a couple of feet this week. My trailer dragged the ramp when I put my boat in yesterday and a boat that had been in the water was beached and dry as a bone. One of my neighbors caught a 52lb Blue night before last I might have caught something close or thats the rumor. See ya on the water!

    From my Daily observations they are running water late at night and cutting if off before the sun comes up. It's up and down on the extreme upper LOZ.

    EXTREMELY LOW.. in the late afternoon. but the white and hybrids are hitting late, and some decent pan sized cats are hitting too. My neighbor is telling me that some DECENT cats are being caught between 10pm and 3AM at the truman dam on Shad heads with one gill plate cut off. ( by decent I mean 20-40 lbs) West Bledsoe Ferry side (The Station Side).. 4-6 buoys outs.. Long cast upstream, but a decent baitcaster will make it. That or add more weight and throw like hell.

    I do too.We had a couple hard showers tonight but they didn't last that long.Just about dark I was coming back from Laurie and I had to pull over at 135 and J,it started raining so hard I couldn't see the end of the hood.It lasted about 2 minutes like that, then it was just a good shower.We got a good hailstorm up here about 10 or 10:30, it was beating the side of the house pretty good.

    Well,it looks like LOZ might be headed back to the normal pool.It's at 655.2' right now and it's supposed to be 655.7' by Monday.Hopefully it will be back to 660' in the next couple weeks.
