a note from the editor

Lucky in...

Love. Family. Friends, Finances,... I believe in luck. Some people are very calculated about every move they make, some are more “fly by the seat of their pants”. And regardless of where you fall, even if its right in the middle, you still need a little “luck” in everything coming together perfectly.

So, moving towards Spring, what things can you do to bring “luck” into your life? I am big on having goals...planning on success and opening yourself up to luck coming your way. Of course, everything you want takes effort and time invested. Put your time and energy towards the goals you want to acheive and you can encourage your own luck!

I am already envisioning my future and how I want this time in my life to look. I am planting the seeds this Spring to grow the life I want to live.

Join me in searching for the pot of gold, the life you want to live. Invest in yourself, friends, family and finances and receive the life you want!



P: 417-363-3030

I am always thankful to each of you for joining me on this journey and can’t wait until the water warms up and we can meet on the lake!

Be Happy, Myra

March fishing on Table Rock Lake

10 - Lost on the Lake

March, in like a lion out like a lamb, the unofficial start of spring, when mother nature temps us with several warm sunny days and then crushes our hopes with the occasional snowstorm. You’re in a parka on Monday and shorts and flip flops on the weekend. March can be one of the most confusing and difficult months of the year to fish and Table Rock Lake, fish can be as finicky as Morris the Cat in the old Nine Lives commercials.

Water Temperature is the thing.

Before we can discuss how to catch fish in March it’s critical to understand how changes in water temperature effect fish and their movement in spring. All fish are cold blooded creatures and the temperature of their body is dictated by the temperature of the water they swim in. Colder water lowers a fish’s body temp and metabolism, warm water raises both. The higher a fish’s metabolism the more food it must consume to stay alive. When the water temperature is in the mid to high forties a fish consumes less and is less active than when water temperature is in the mid to upper fifties. As we move into spring, the air temps rise and in turn so do water temperatures. The warmer the water the more active

Lost on the Lake - 11

the fish and the more fish you are likely to catch.

What to do if the water temperature is in the 40’s

Forty-degree water is cold, fish are not active and don’t feed much, they aren’t going to expend a lot of energy to catch what little food they need. The upper forties are much better than the lower forties, but the fish are still inactive. Let’s look at the best techniques for Table Rock Lake’s three most popular game fish when the water is in the forties.

Bass: Slow down, if you think you are fishing slow enough you’re probably not. Slow deliberate presentations close to cover are key to catching bass when the water is in the 40’s. Jigs and shaky heads top the list of offerings when the water is cold, working slow moving baits through deep water cover is usually your best bet. Look for brush and standing timber close to channel swings and drop offs to hold most fish. Vertical presentations can also be very effective; spoons, jigging lures and drop shot rigs fished close to deep trees can put fish in the boat when nothing else will work. Remember the fish are not going to be chasing baits so keeping it “in their face” as long as possible is a better play than working a bait erratically.

Crappie: Much like bass, crappie are going to be lethargic when the water is cold. Crappie will tend to school around brush and under docks holding tight to the cover not willing to move far to feed. Live minnows on a slip bobber is an excellent way to put crappie in the boat when it’s cold. Set the depth to the top of a brush pile and let it sit. Vertical jigging is another excellent cold water crappie technique, position your boat directly over the brush, drop your bait down to the fish and lightly jiggy it to entice strikes.

Walleye: Unlike bass and crappie

walleye do start to get active when water temperatures in the forties. Walleye spawn in early to mid-March when water temps hit the low to mid-fifties so they start to make a spawning run up into the rivers when water temps are in the forties. Since walleye are on the move to their spawning grounds, they tend to be more active and feeding; casting swimbaits, crankbaits and jigs are usually the best methods. Shad imitating swimbaits like a Kietech Swing Impact Fat on a ¼oz. jig head can be the only lure you need to put a limit of walleye in the boat. Successful walleye anglers concentrate their efforts in rivers and big creeks in March targeting fish moving up on to flat banks to feed less than 15’ deep. When the bite gets tough most anglers will move to the channel side of a river and throw hair jigs tipped with live minnows to fish holding in the safety of the main river channel.

What to do if the water temperature is in the 50’s

Fifty-degree water is still cold but the difference in fish activity from the forties is nothing short of remarkable. Bass and crappie are both moving shallow and beginning to position themselves for the spawn, while walleye have spawned and are feeding up to recover from the rigors of a successful spawn. Here’s your best opportunities and tactics for our favorite three species when the water temperatures rise into the fifties.

Bass: With rise in water temps bass will be on the move, their metabolism rises and they begin to feed up in anticipation of the spawn. Warm windy days are a great time to throw crankbaits like a SPRO Rock Crawler or a Storm Wiggle Wart. Theses baits dive from 5’ – 15’ deep and target active fish that are moving out of deep water to the shallows to feed. Rocky, 45-degree banks at the ends of channel swings are prime spots, bass will use these areas to move from deep channels and find crawfish and other prey to feed on. As the water warms into the mid or upper 50’s a spinner -

Lost on the Lake - 13

bait or chatterbait become more effective as you can work these baits around shallow wood cover bass will use to ambush prey without fear of hanging up.

Crappie: Crappie too will be come more aggressive as the water warms; schools will move from deep trees and brush to shallow cover looking for minnows and shad. Small swimbaits like an 8’er Baits Swimming Minnow or a Gene Larew Stroller on a 1/16oz. or 1/8oz. head fished around shallow brush is usually the ticket for aggressive crappie. Don’t forget about docks as the water warms too, the same crappie that have been schooled under a dock on hanging brush all winter will stay under a dock moving from deep to shallow in search of food.

Walleye: With the rigors of the spawn mostly over walleye will begin to move back down stream towards their summer homes when water temps get into

the 50’s. Casting is still a preferred method using Jig and Minnow combinations or “ripping” lipless crankbaits or blade baits in the main river channel. Walleye tend to be more active in low light times of the day after the spawn with many anglers concentrating on day break or dusk to improve their odds.

Notes and Tips:

March can be a frustrating time of year to fish; the air temperature is warm but the water temperature isn’t and the fish just don’t want to cooperate as much as we would like them to. Paying close attention to the water temp and adjusting accordingly is extremely important to your success but there are a couple more tips that can help:

Love and hate of muddy water:

Cold muddy water is rarely good,

14 - Lost on the Lake

unless there is a warm rain it should generally be avoided. But after a couple of days, sometime just a few hours, of warm sunshine it will be the warmest water on the lake. Target muddy water either after a few days of sun or in the afternoon and you’ll have more success.

You’re not fishing slow enough:

When the water is in the 40’s I can almost guarantee you’re not fishing slow enough. Casting and retrieving a jig, shaky head or swimbait should be taking you minutes not seconds. A good rule of thumb is you should not only be able to feel every rock on the bottom, but you should also be able to know it’s size and shape by the time you come over it.

Fish can be patterned during a warmup:

In recent years fisherman and fishing have gotten away from patterning fish and concentrating more on location fishing, as a rule that can lead to more success throughout the year. But, during a warmup when water temps rise into the 50’s, fish can be patterned very successfully. Pay close attention to depth and cover you are catching fish on this time of year. Within a given area of the lake fish will tend to gravitate towards the same depths and same types of cover.

March is full of opportunity, warm sunny days get fisherman excited to be on the water chasing bass, crappie, and walleye. Pay attention the water temperatures and adjusting your presentations can make all the difference between a successful fishing trip or a boat ride in the sun .

North AmericanRiver Otter

The North American River Otter were almost eliminated in Missouri a century ago, due to unregulated harvest. In the early 1980’s and 1990’s there were restorative efforts which included releasing more than 800 otters throughout the state. Due to these efforts, otters are found all through Missouri.

River otters are perfectly created for life in the water. They are graceful and strong swimmers and can remain underwater for 3 to 8 minutes. Their bodies are streamlined, and their legs are short and they have

webbed feet with claws. Their tails are long and tapered and help propel them through the water.

They have oily, dense fur and many layers of body fat that insulate them in the water. They are able to close their ears and nose when they submerge. They can move rapidly through the water and are very flexible.

The river otters facial whiskers are sensitive to touch and they have a keen sense of smell. Males and females are very similar in

appearance, however the males are larger. They are both dark brown with light brown or grey underbellies. Their throat and muzzle tend to be silvery.

River otters travel on land with a funny, loping gait and in snow or ice they also slide.

These mammals are similar the the American Mink also found in Missouri, however they are quite a bit larger at 35-53 inches in length and 10-30 lbs in weight.

As mentioned, these otters are found in lakes, rivers, streams and other large bodies of water surrounded by forest. They bur -

row under rocky ledges, large tree roots or stumps, under fallen trees or in thickets. They tend to utilize the former homes of beavers, woodchucks or muskrats.

These water mammals eat a lot of crayfish for most of the year, but when it gets colder in the winter they feed primarily on fish. They will also eat frogs, snakes, turtles, mussels, small animals and aquatic insects. The highly sensitive whiskers are used to find food underwater. They have a very high metabolism, so they eat frequently.

Otters are mostly nocturnal and remain active all year. They do not hibernate. They

Lost on the Lake - 19

are far more social than the American Mink, choosing to live in family groups. They vocalize to each other with whistles, yelps, and screams as well as through body posture and touch. They also scent mark using their musk glands.

The females give birth to 2-5 young in February or March. The young will nurse until they are approximately 4 months of age, but they will stay in the family group until the next spring. River Otters tend to live a long life and in captivity have lived to 19 years of age.

Through research it is suggested that the otters have a minimal impact on the fish populations in large bodies of water, but may impact small streams and ponds.

If you are having trouble with critters on your dock, I recommend leaving a small transistor radio on at all times. We use this tactic and rarely have any signs of otter visitation.

Knowing that they communicate through droppings and secretions from their musk glands, it is best to remove any feces and traces of the otters as quickly as possible.

financial focus


Now that we’ve put winter behind us — at least on the calendar — it’s time for us to think about sprucing up our homes, inside and out. But it also may be time to do some financial spring cleaning.

Some of the same ideas involved in tidying up your home can also be used to help put your financial house in order. Here are a few suggestions:

• Dust off your investment strategy. As you look around your home, you might find that many items — tables, desks, bookshelves, and computer and television screens — could benefit from a good dusting. And, once you’ve accomplished this, you’ll get a clearer view of all these objects. Similarly, your investment strategy needs to be “dusted off” every so often, so you can see if it’s still working to help you move toward your financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement. Over time, your personal circumstances and risk tolerance can change, and these changes may lead you to reexamine your future financial and investment decisions.

• De-clutter your portfolio. if you took a survey of your home, would you find duplicates or even triplicates of some things — brooms, vacuum cleaners, toasters, and so on? If so, it may be time to do some de-cluttering. And the same could be true of your portfolio — you might have several identical, or substantially identical, investments taking up space. If so, you might want to replace these redundancies with investments that can improve your diversification. While diversification can’t guarantee profits or protect against losses in a declining market, it may help reduce the impact of market volatility on your holdings.

• Get organized. If your closets are overstuffed, with clothes and miscellaneous items crammed on shelves and the floor, you may well have trouble finding what you’re looking for — but with a little straightening up, your searches will

become much easier. And when you’re trying to locate financial documents, such as investment statements or insurance policies, you’ll also benefit from having everything organized in one central location. Even if you get most of these documents online, you can save what you need and keep them in a file on your desktop, laptop or tablet. (And it’s also a good idea to tell your spouse, adult child or another close relative how these documents can be accessed, just in case something happens to you.)

• Protect yourself from dangers. If you look around your garage, shed or other storage area, you may well find some objects — such as gardening tools, paint thinners, engine fluids and leaning ladders — that could be dangerous if they aren’t stored properly. As part of your spring cleaning, you’ll want to remove these hazards to safeguard yourself and your family. But have you addressed the various financial risks that could threaten your loved ones? For example, if something were to happen to you, could your family members maintain their lifestyle? Could your children still go to college? To guard against this risk, you may want to discuss protection strategies with a financial professional.

Spring cleaning can pay off — in a cleaner, safer home environment and in helping ensure your financial strategy continues to work hard for you.

Ask an Expert: Home and Property Maintenance

Welcome to Ask an Expert: Home and Property Maintenance. Each month our featured home and property expert will answer questions that provide information, tips and advice on a medley of homeowner topics. We hope to help our readers gain new insights into a variety of local home service professionals, services and products. Our goal is to make maintaining your home easier and empower you with the knowledge that you need to be a successful homeowner in the TableRock lake area. Let’s get started.

Who is our March expert?

“Tyrel Middleton, Service Manager with AireServ Heating and Air Conditioning of Springfield/Branson.”

What services do you offer?

“AireServ provides professional maintenance, repair and installation of home comfort systems with residential properties in the Springfield and Branson area. We also prioritize indoor air quality (IAQ) and provide services as well as equipment to ensure your home has healthy air.”

Are there any signs to look for that indicate that you need to service your HVAC system?

“Absolutely. If you are experiencing high util -

ity usage, extended run times on your system, or if the system is not keeping up and maintaining set temperatures, you probably need to have it looked at.”

How important is duct cleaning? Why?

“Duct cleaning is very important. It keeps dust from building up, allows the heating and cooling systems to operate more efficiently and keeps your home environment healthier in terms of air quality, allergies, etc.”

How often should you have your air ducts cleaned?

“It is recommended to have your ducts cleaned every 3-5 years.”

I’ve noticed that one side of my house has a different temperature than the other side. Why is that?

“There could be many factors, but the most common possibilities are the way duct work is designed, the outside environmental infiltration, a leaky window, trees shading more of one side of the house than the other or even simply the age of the house.”

How important is it to get the right sized system for your house?

“It is critical. The wrong sized system can cause

26 - Lost on the Lake

issues. You need to make sure the system is designed for the heat load of the house. For example, if you have a system that is too large you will not be able to remove moisture in the Summertime. That will cause moisture issues such as biological growth. In Wintertime, the system will short cycle. That means the system will kick on and off more frequently. That can cause premature compressor failure.”

How often should I change my unit’s filter?

“We recommend every month…no matter what filter you purchase? Some houses may require twice a month.”

Other than changing the filter, what else can I do as a homeowner to properly care for my HVAC unit?

“Get on a maintenance schedule with your HVAC provider.”

I see that AireServ offers an Advantage

Plan. What is that?

“Our Advantage Plan is a maintenance program that provides two maintenance services a year. We check all electrical and refrigerant components for proper operation. We also clean blower wheels and coils. Advantage Plan members also receive a 15% discount on parts that may be needed throughout the year as well as priority scheduling in the event of a failure.”

Are you offering a special this month for our readers?

“Yes. If you mention this article, we will give you a one-year Advantage Plan for $129.00. (An Advantage Plan is normally $189.00) That’s a great deal for that service.”

How to Hire a Private Chef

3. Any food allergies – dairy, nuts, seafood, meat, etc.

4. Possible budget per person – If you have a per person budget, tell the chef before the menu is designed. This will help speed up the process of selecting menu items to fit your budget.

5. Food preferences or themes – This gives the chef a place to start when creating your menu. You can search the chef’s Facebook page or website to get ideas, but don’t limit your menu to the pictures. Good chefs have culinary skills beyond your typical meal. Allow them to be creative and impress your tastebuds.

Have you ever thought about hiring a private chef? Setting up this luxurious experience is simple. Follow these 7 steps for large groups, small parties, family gatherings, a couples event, or even a private romantic dinner for two:

• Contact a Chef – Email, Text, or Call a Private Chef in your area. You can use a Google search to find one or contact The Rogue Chef in Branson, Missouri. If he is not available for your event, he can refer you to other amazing chefs.

• Address Basic Information – Tell the chef the following things so a menu can be created and sent to you:

1. Date and location of your event

2. Number of people attending – include adults and children

• Think About Your Budget – There is no “average” price for private chef clients. Prices are usually given on a “per person” basis and include designing a unique menu for your event, shopping at various specialty stores for premium products, cost of products, travel, food preparation prior to your event and during your event, chef served plated meal, and clean-up of kitchen/dining area after your meal. The menu will include prices. These are non-negotiable prices, as they are determined by the cost of the products and the amount of time it will take the chef to prepare your meal. You can change the price by negotiating the number of appetizers, type of entree, sides, and/or desserts. Changing or eliminating these items will change the overall cost per person. If your event is more than 60 miles from the chef’s location, a travel fee of $175 – $250 is customary.

• Review the Menu – Look at the menu the chef created. Select items, if the chef gave you options, or determine if you want to make changes. Chefs expect changes to the initial menu because they want to create a menu that fits your

38 - Lost on the Lake

needs. Send changes back to the chef as soon as possible. Check out a Sample Menu.

• Pay a Deposit – Once the menu is finalized (this may take several back and forth conversations to confirm), pay a deposit to secure your date with the chef. The deposit is usually half the total price and is non-refundable after a certain timeframe, as this money is used to purchase food.

• Enjoy the Experience – The chef will arrive at your location 2-3 hours prior to your event. The chef may bring a Sous Chef or Host to help. Talk to the chef upon arrival to discuss exact time frames, food preparation and service areas, and any questions or concerns you may need addressed. The chef will prepare your food, plate it, serve it, and then clean up. There is nothing you need to worry about, just enjoy the meal.

• Reward the Efforts – This can be done in a variety of ways. You may decide to pay a tip, which is not required, but always appreciated. Tips usually range from 15 –30% of the total bill and can be added to the final payment or paid in cash after the event. Additional ways to reward the efforts of the chef include positive feedback during and after the meal, Google reviews, comments on Facebook or other social media accounts, referrals to other customers, and/or repeat business. It is a treat for a chef to be invited to a future event.

If you follow these 7 simple steps, you will be able to enjoy all the luxuries of hiring a private chef for any event.

Tiger Sanctuary National

When asked why they do what they do, Judy McGee & Keith Kinkade responded, “When we learned of the plight of tigers in the wild, and the problems captive tigers faced, we felt we needed to do something to help. That need soon became our mission.” They were both moved to make a difference by rescuing tigers in need, but they also wanted to educate others.

Giving tigers a healthy, safe and loving home, for the remainder of their life is the

40 - Lost on the Lake

main objective. At the same time, they want to educate people of all ages by encouraging a greater connection to nature and these magnificent animals. Increasing awareness of big cats and the issues they face, as well as promoting a closer look at the impact we all make on the world around us can make all of the difference.

This mission grew into what is the National Tiger Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a rescue organization for exotic and domestic animals in need of a safe, permanent home for the rest of their life. The facility is non-profit and its diverse learning campus is dedicated to exemplary animal care and preservation of the environment. Their educational programs and visitor experiences are offered to foster a love and an appreciation for nature.

Being in the presence of these magnificent animals reminds you how fortunate we really are. The Sanctuary offers many different tours ranging in price from $20 and up.
