Caught some fish early on a top water and then they quit on us.  That was it not a bite after. I have no idea why but the bite just stopped . we tried crankbaits, worms and even a drop shot with no success.   Hope to go this evening to try to catch them,

We caught fish early this morning and then around the time of the eclipse things got quiet. I caught a bass off a dock just about the time the eclipse was in full swing. It did get darker the for a few minutes but it definitely did not get cooler... The fish bit today on a wopper plopper and a big worm fished texas style.the drop shot sucked pretty much today.. Going out in w short while for the evening bite..

The fish are chasing shad in the mornings and are fun to catch.Just about anywhere you can find them especially on main lake points. Especially if they are pulling water. They are not big ones but they sure are fun to catch..  I had Billy Bass Hendren and Howard Hall out this morning.. Billy had never fished before but caught on fast .He had the trash talk down real good before we left the dock. Great guys to be around always a fun time for sure. It really would not surprise me if Billy doesn't have him a fishing boat soon. Howard and Billy have been friends for years. Howard is a legend in dirt track racing in the midwest with over 300 feature wins.  

Thanks guys for sharing the day with me..

Went out for a bit. At the dam the bass there chasing shad. It looked like the water was boiling. The Kentucky, Blacks, and Whites where going crazy. In about 45 min I must have caught 50+ fish some nice white bass but all the rest were thay 12-14in range, but still fun. My dog TAZ was having a blast. All where on a wooper plooper... I finally quit I was wore out.

Caught fish today on a 10 inch worm fishing ledges. We could not get a top water bite today. Bluff ends and ledge worked consistently today.

Fishing this morning was tougher than it has been the past few days. We caught some fish shallow on a top water and we caught some fish deeper on a drop shot. i would rate the fishing a fair but only because of the fish that are chasing shad. One year ago today I caught a 8.8 on a big worm.. Fished the same hole this morning but with no success.

Raining this morning finally and a little cooler. Clients caught fish shallow on topwater and square bills early then we moved out to the ledges and caught fish on drop shots.. The fishing has been tough and today it was as well. The big fish just seemed to have lock jaw.

I have been busy lately and lazy when it comes to writing. However the fishing is still tough however we have caught several bass and a few good ones .  All in all a good time for sure.The fish have been chasing shad in the mornings and quitting that about the time the sun comes over he trees . The bigger fish have been coming on a big worm and drop shot fishing.. They have not been running water and that makes for even a tougher bite.

With the air temp at 100 and the water temp 90 the fishing is TERRIBLE!

It has been as tough as a two dollar steak and really miserable out there on beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The fish are really snacking on the huge shad population as there is inch long shad ever where. We caught fish but we are struggling catching any big fish. We are fishing with Drop Shot and also the big old monster zoom worm.   

Make sure that you keep yourself hydrated and handle your fish properly.

The fishing was slow this morning . Finally found some fish on some brush piles that were 15 to 20 feet deep. The fish were hitting the worm very light. Tried crankbaits and nothing would hit them.Started at 6 am and the fish never really got going.
