worm drowner, table rock is one of my favorite lakes! 800+ miles
of shoreline and tons-o-bass! we found branson too busy and crowded, so
we stayed in Kimberling city which i think is about 15 miles w/of branson,
and right on the lake, but i too have had to 'work out' arangements
so the little lady and kiddies can be entertained while you go drowning
worms, so if thats the case branson will be better for <her>.
as for the fishing, been there in both may and september..awsome!
should you find schools of shad and bass busting through them,
try a 4" super salt clear w/chartouse tail i think it was Kaylens?
anyway the deal is the bass are gorging on shad (when available) then
go to the bottom say 35' or less and digest the shad, you have to drop the clear/salty worm right on there noses and they will suck it in, here
is the tricky part..you have to wait till your line slowly pulls your rod
to the gunal, then set the hook!! we have had them run to the surface
faster then we could crank!! these bass are like footballs and will puke
half digested shad all over your boat...but the mess is worth it!!
remember it drops to 250' deep about 100' from shore.
