The water temp is as hot as the air temp. That is unreal for mid June. Took a young man out this morning and we nailed them on top water until the sun came up good. Then the bite got as tough as a two dollar steak. We switched from top water fishing shallow to drop shot fishing in 15 to 25 feet of water.

Not real hot this morning but still warm at early thirty. Went out and caught some Kentucky's on wave breaks this morning. The fish were responsive to a top water until the sun got up a little .  Did see some fishing chasing shad thought I might get into some of that action. Note to self stay put. Tried chasing them and they seemed to be where I wasn't. came in early would of like to stayed out longet but had a appointment to go to . we have a cooler forcast later this week but recommend to stay in today as the temp in going to be in the mid to upper 90s.

The water temp here is like a bath tub. The fishing is not bad especially early late and at night time.we still have a bloom of some kind as the water is still green.The fish don't seem to mind. I have been catching fish on a drop shot along bluff ends and a plastic worm on main lake points.

The weather is HOT.

The water is HOT.

The fishing is HOT.

It is a fisherman's dream right now on Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The fish are not jumping in the boat but close. The fish are starting to stage in there summer haunts and that is my favorite place to catch them. Big worms, Big jigs, monster crankbaits all seem to work right now. My arm is killing me this morning from cranking some monster big billed deep diving crankbait.  Would like to be out there this morning giving them hell but lighting and fishing doesn't mix in my book.  Good Fishing is a understatement...

Starting to catch them on the ledges. Last night a friend and I caught several bass fishing deep. After the wild weekend with huge boats making huge wakes and people with their heads stuck up the A- - with no common sense. the fish are shell shocked and  started moving to the deeper water haunts. Thats where good electronics and someone like me comes into play. We can help you find show how to fish and teach you how to fish them. Good electronics are a must unless you got unlimited time on your hands.  The fish are hitting a DD22 and a shaker head and a drop shot . I personally like the drop shot as it is easier for my clients to catch fish on.  No matter what mow is a good time to fish Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. schedule your trip during the week and not around any holidays.    

Good Fishing!

Another sellar day on the water .  Took a young man out today that had never caught a fish before in his life.. He is now converted to the love of fishing. He caught several bass learned how to throw a spinning reel and a baitcaster.   The water temp is in the low 70s and the lake is clear. The bass are eager to hit a wacky worm and a topwater twitch bait. He did not catch any monsters but he had a smile ear to ear.

The bass have been very active this past few days. They are in shallow pockets protecting their beds and will hit a wacky worm or a well placed topwater.. All in all having lots of fun and catching lots of fish. Now is a great time to be fishing Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.
