table rock lake: BUT OFFICER..... - 07/01/07 05:55 AM
There is a watery border separating Missouri and Arkansas in the White River System, but there is not a visable line that boaters or fishermen can see.
Fishing Table Rock, Norfork or Bull Shoals reservoirs used to be confusing for anglers.  All three lakes touch both Missouri and Arkansas territory.  So what's a person to do?  Many bought two licenses - one for state residents and one for out-of-state.
Fishing these areas with only one license could get the fisherman in trouble if a boat drifted into the next State's jurisdiction, and be cause for an expensive citation, if … (2 comments)

table rock lake: WEAR ALOT OF HATS? - 06/30/07 09:39 AM
There are  factors in every occupation that either enhance enjoying your work,  or adversely affect your outlook.  What I have always enjoyed in  being a REALTOR is the hunt.   Sort of a safari around Shell Knob and Table Rock Lake.  I want to search out and find the trophy home for my hunters. 
People come to us with the  expectation  of being guided through a maze of concerns and questions to help them  find the perfect property.  They have been dreaming, scheming, searching and planning for this and want instant fulfillment. 

I often seem to be … (3 comments)

table rock lake: SHELL KNOB FISHING REPORT JUNE 22 - 06/21/07 04:02 PM
Trotlines baited with live bluegill are attracting some nice flatheads.  A neighbor told me he has been getting two or three nice catfish every morning when he checks his lines.  It's even nicer when he shares.  Yum - sweet meat.

According to our resident author and fishing expert, Tom Koob, the best black bass fishing has been with soft plastics in the 20 to 25 foot range.
Fish are still in many locations, and it pays to target secondary banks with cover, points and transition areas.  The good shoreline cover, with the lake as high as it is … (2 comments)

table rock lake: BOAT SLIPS NEEDED IN SHELL KNOB - 06/21/07 08:45 AM
People move to Table Rock Lake to enjoy the water, and part of that enjoyment for many is useing their boat.  The next logical step is to have a place to park your boat, which is normally a boat dock or slip.
As a Shell Knob REALTOR, I know it is becoming more difficult to find these boat slips, due to restrictions placed by the Army Corps of Engineers,  but an ad in our local paper this week, The Rattler, kind of says it all.

table rock lake: TABLE ROCK LAKE HAZARD - 06/21/07 08:22 AM
There are many water hazards floating on Table Rock Lake, warns the Coast Guard Auxiliary as they check waters around Shell Knob.  The problem was created by unusually large rains the past two weeks, which dislodged logs and branches into the water.
The normal pool level on Table Rock is 915, but the spring rains raised that to 919 for a few days.  When the water rises higher on the edges of the lake, the dead trees float free and can be in the path of a boat.
Boats traveling at a high speed may not see a log, or a partially … (0 comments)

table rock lake: Shell Knob Fishing Update - 06/14/07 10:22 AM

Table Rock Lake
Temperatures are in the upper 70's with 80 degree surface water to arrive soon, so night fishing is becoming the better option.
Good cover along shorelines holds possibilities for shallow bass, but most fish are spending more time in deeper water now.  Plastic worms are good, according to author Tom Koob, along secondary banks, points and transition areas.  Faster lures like crankbaits and spinnerbaits can be useful to find fish on these areas.
Bass are staging at around 20-25' but can move even deeper.  Drop-shot rigs with a Fish Doctor, French fry or razor worm … (0 comments)

table rock lake: WHAT DO YOU DO IN SHELL KNOB? - 06/09/07 09:30 AM
I had a lady ask me not long ago, "Just what do you DO in Shell Knob?"Her question gave me pause, but I had to answer truthfully, "If you have to ask , then Shell Knob probably isn't the right place for you." 
We don't have any malls (unless you want to call the Bridgeway Plaza a mall), theatres, night clubs or fancy restaurants.  We don't even have a Walmart, but you can get to a Walmart by driving 30 miles in any direction. 

Shell Knob is actually rural, and if it weren't for a large … (1 comments)

table rock lake: WHAT IS A 1031 EXCHANGE - 06/04/07 08:22 AM
1031  IN SHELL KNOB?There are Shell Knob residents  growing their nest egg by use of an IRS Ruling known as a 1031 , but can it be applied to a vacation home on Table Rock Lake? 
Normally when you sell property, you receive either a gain or a loss in the transaction.  If it is a gain, you pay tax on it.  Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), however provides an exception to that rule.Instead of selling property, paying taxes on it, and then using the reduced after-tax proceeds to buy other real estate, IRC & 1031 allows the deferment … (8 comments)

table rock lake: TABLE ROCK LAKE - 06/01/07 04:17 AM
What does "The Good Life" mean to you?
This question came to me as I was enjoying a boat ride on Table Rock Lake last night.  The sun wasn't too hot at 7 pm.  The water was smooth as glass, and we were the only boat I could see on the water in any direction!  We finally saw a couple of boats fishing in coves , but not a ripple on the water, until we created it in passing.

Now this IS a huge lake, depending upon whose measurement you use, between 857 and 745 miles of shoreline, … (2 comments)

table rock lake: MOSQUITO FREE LAKE - 05/28/07 08:05 AM
 Would you like to have a summer home at a lake where you didn't need to swat mosquitos?  Then let me show you around some Shell Knob real estate on Table Rock Lake.  Yes, you read correctly - I said NO Mosquitos on the lake. 
How can this be? 
The typical lakefront cottage has to have a screened in porch for residents to be able to enjoy swat-free meals,  while  lighting  citronella candles. The lack of this annoying insect occurs at Table Rock due to the type of terrain that makes up the lake.  The hills in the Ozarks have … (3 comments)

table rock lake: TO WORK OR NOT TO WORK - 05/27/07 08:58 AM
REALTOR HOME OFFICEI have been working from home for  two years.  My broker does have an office with a desk for me in Shell Knob, to use whenever I need it or have floor time, but for the past two years or so, walk-ins are rare, as are phone calls.  So rather than seeking floor-time, I volunteer to come in when needed. The office is a place to meet clients before showing property. 
Shell Knob is different than a city or large town.  We would almost be considered rural, except for Table Rock Lake, which places us in the recreational category.  When … (17 comments)

table rock lake: MARKETING GAFF OR SIGN OF THE TIMES? - 05/15/07 07:58 AM
  REAL ESTATE SIGNS MISSINGIt might be a good song title "Where Have All the Sale Signs Gone",  or a new marketing plan, but  it was a problem last week.  I had clients from out-of-town who were trying to get familiar with the Ozarks.  They had been shopping on line, and found this Shell Knob agent  from  AR blog. 
I stepped out of my normal territory to give them a tour of  property in a near-by area they wanted to see.  So I was at the mercy of 
1)listing sheet directions,
2) my map and 
3) For Sale signs
Signs, I presumed, would … (8 comments)

table rock lake: TAKE-LINE MAINTENANCE - 05/14/07 10:13 AM
Waterfront Boundary Work on Table Rock  The Army Corps of Engineers has contracted with survey crews to conduct maintenance along portions of the public boundary line that surrounds Table Rock Lake.  This line is commonly called the TAKE LINE by  residents, as the Corps literally 'takes' the land from the predetermined survey, and from that line to the water's edge, the land is not usable by the landowners.  It belongs to the Corps of Engineers.       Crews are working on the northeast bank north of The Chateau On The Lake, continuing northwest to Stormy Point.  Work will also be starting on the east … (1 comments)
