Gary Player Golf Course

Fri, 04/07/2017 - 4:40pm -- lilley

Johnny Morris is determined to make Branson "the" golf destination.  He already has one of the most beautiful 9-hole, par 3 courses in the world, Top of the Rock and Buffalo Ridge is tops in the state of Missouri.  He has partnered with Gary Player to design and build another par 3, 13-hole course just south of Buffalo Ridge, due to open this summer.

Jig Fishing Success, 12/17

Sat, 12/17/2016 - 12:00am -- lilley


This morning was one of those mornings that almost everything went well.  Boated up to Lookout and found a little water running, just a little.  We put on 3/32nd ounce black jigs, 2-pound line, and started going to town.  Duane had 4 rainbows on his first 4 casts and tried his hardest to get 5 for 5 but only came up with 4 strikes.

Lake Taneycomo fishing report, October 29

Sat, 10/29/2016 - 12:00am -- lilley


For the most part, there's been very little generation on Lake Taneycomo the past couple of weeks.  If operators run the turbines, it's early in the morning for an hour or two (70 megawatts) and in the afternoon beginning  2 to 4 p.m. and running either for an hour or until dark.  I know that sounds arbitrary, but there really isn't a pattern.  We count on some water running every day but with extended periods of no generation most of the day and all night.

Lake Taneycomo Fishing Report, October 19

Wed, 10/19/2016 - 12:00am -- lilley


Generation is almost predictable at the moment.  Dam operators have been running water starting about 1 p.m. until dark on weekends, the amount varying from day to day.  Some days they're running almost three full units (140 megawatts) while others they're running from one to two units.  On weekends, no water except one hour or less of "fish water" or up to one unit of water.
