Ozarks Spring-time is my favorite time!

Industry Observer

The wind is blowing in from the South and the trees are starting to leaf out.  Flowers are starting to show alongside the roads.  Instead of snow, we get rain for weather changes, ah ha, life is sweet this time of year.  March madness is going on in the Ozarks too, especially in Branson and Hollister. 

A couple of days ago we met some of my cousins who were vacationing in Branson, she won a bunch of show tickets at work, and eating at the buffet were three young men that were very tall.  I asked them who they were playing ball for and they said Washington.  College of the Ozarks is hosting the NCAA Division II Tournament right now so the average height of folks in Branson has gone up considerably. 

 Besides the local entertainment getting started back into full swing, there is always fishing, and Table Rock Lake is hosting another FLW Bass Tournament that just started and includes walleye too.  Weather here should warm up to close to 40 today and tomorrow and that means you are a serious fisher-person to compete here!  I went out a couple times last week when the weather was around 70 degrees and was perfectly fine in that weather.                                                    


The White Bass have started upstream already and I was able to catch a few small ones, but nothing of eating size.  Galena will be the host of their 2nd Annual White Bass Tournament this year on March 21st, which happens to also be when I turn the big 60.  What a day that should be, I plan on being on the water, chasing those White Bass, and you?

Hi Steve, Fishing sounds great! Sounds like you're gonna have to get back out there and to see what else you may be able to catch.  I love surf fishing right off the beach.  Enjoy the gorgeous weather.

I love springtime too Steve.  What a nice post about what's going on in your area.  I was just noticing yesterday the tiny little bits of green on my trees.  Hopefully the sun will open things up and it will be green here soon.

Steve it's beautiful all year around in your neck of the woods.  I miss my childhood vacations there.
