A park pass is required.

There is a 40 mph speed limit on the lake.
It could be very warm so please take care of your fish.  Fill your livewells at take-off to utilize the cooler water, use a livewell treatment if possible, replace 1/3 of the water at least once through the day to flush out gasses, do not drop the water temperature in the livewell more than 10* if you add ice.  The shock could kill your fish quicker than gas buildup.
There are a few of us staying at Days Inn & Suites.  660-562-3111
Good luck to all and hope to see you up there!

Report from KBN Spring Meeting
All qualifiers, Mr.Bass and other qualifying tournaments will be run as a Pro-Am which means all boaters MUST sign up with a non-boater (you are not allowed to fish alone) and the boater will have full control of the boat for all tournament hours.

EKB was brought up quite a few times during the meeting, which is a good thing!  Keep up the good work!
There is a new incentive program within KBN.  The three clubs that gain the most members during the year will receive -
1st - 109lb thrust Motorguide
2nd -  Fury prop
3rd - Case of oil
We can do what we want with it if we win.  Sell, raffle, auction...
