Had a good time once again! Made it home all unpacked and got the boat cleaned up good! Glad we stopped and beat up a cooler of crappie on the way down there Friday! Burgers were great Friday night! Thanks Jordan! Fish dip and pie were awesome as well! Fishing wise we made lemon aid out of lemons! I somehow misplaced my waypoints card so we went and graphed a bank out from the marina and found a load of fish on a point. 3 hours later we went in for lunch after hitting spot lock and never moving. We had quadruples 5 times that I remember and usually had 2 fish on our of the 4 of us! Threw em all back so that was even better! Palestine, Fork, and Pines in the next 2 weeks then head to Truman lake in Mo. never been there before. Should be fun!!

I’ve had my share of flooded lakes for a while. Maybe it will be close to normal when we get there but I doubt it!!

Just wanted to say we made it home and had a great time as usual! Slew fried up some excellent fish and Jordan grilled some great burgers! It was nice meeting new folks who came for the first and the usual folks that come yearly! Buff it was great having you back sir. There's never a dull moment hanging out with Unkle Pat, Slew, Brian and Rick. The fish dip and keylime pies were off the chain as usual, and we got some keylime pie to take home (thanks Rick) which we will all be fighting over lol.

Just wanted to say what a great time I had. A big thanks to my bff Buff for inviting me to fish in his boat.

The food and company was outstanding. So nice to see old friends and meet some new ones.

I caught catfish, drum, white bass, yellow bass, oh and a couple of crappie.

The lake was high and challenging and the weather not perfect, but I had a great time.

Thanks to all who did the work to make it happen.

What a great weekend

Had a good time fishing, catching up with old friends and meeting some new ones.

As always there is never a dull moment at these get togethers. Good food, lots of entertainment and some fish caught.

Missed those that have made it before but could not make it this year. Hopefully all can make it next year.

Pretty much got my fill of sand bass for a while
I don't know how many sand bass that area gave up but 500 would not surprise me. I know at least 3 boats worked that same point over

Awesome time! Glad we were finally able to make it! Good food, had some fun.

Thanks guys that cooked food!

I really liked getting to play with live scope! We got home this am and I mounted my "new" graph to the trolling motor and front deck. Hopefully the lake clears up this week and I can go chase some crappie and use it!

I had a great time as always. It was great to catch up with everyone. I stopped on the way home and Ivan beat the hair off a mess of crappie on a lake that was not so flooded

I enjoyed seeing some old friends and meeting new ones. Unfortunately I only caught one drum and a couple of crappie. One of these days I'll figure out how the find and catch crappie, or I'll have lots of Garmin electronics for sale! I missed out on the white bass slaying, I had loaded my boat to grabbed some lunch and didn't launch it again. I think everyone got into the sand bass shortly after lunch Saturday.


The burgers on Friday and fish on Saturday were both great, thanks to everyone that contributed both food and supplies, and especially the cooks for their hard work cooking for everyone.

The water was said to be 7 feet high, however I had to offset the depth by 10 feet for the actual depth and the depth shown on my contour map to match.

It was officially 8-1/2 feet high yesterday per ACE district we sight when I looked. You were very close. And sits at 8.96 feet above normal at the present in "real time".

A little info on just how much water big sam can hold at where it is at currently. There is still no water being released. Currently sitting at 173.36 which is 9.36 ft high currently. It will top the emergency spillway at 176.

They’ll start getting even more anxious when it hits 174ish because wave action will take water over the top.

Water has never gone over the emergency spillway, so they only think they know what will happen.

Here are some pics of how high Rayburn is for reference. One of the cabins Keith posted pics of we stay in every Mother's day weekend. These pics will really give you an idea of how high it is. The pics are pool level and now at 9.5 ft. Pics are at same cabin.

I took the boat to the lake yesterday afternoon, put in at Cassels Boykin wanting to run south of the 147 bridge, the lake is so high my boat wouldn’t fit under it. It’s crazy high right now, I’m surprised y’all were able to find some fish as flooded as it is right now

Great weekend boys and girls! Hard to beat good food, time on the water, and good company, and some nice black crappie was just a bonus! Was great to see old faces and some new ones too. I think I may need a bulk bottle of Tums for next time that food was so good. Thanks to all who contributed. I came home with some show pig bacon and about 2 inches of apple pie shine! Lucky me!

Momma had a good time so thanks to everyone for making her feel welcome. She and I are already looking forward to next year!

PS. I'm thinking this needs to become a SEMI-annual trip!
