The Point View Resort on the Niangua Arm just installed what they believe is the largest fish habitat installation at a single location ever. Dozens of giant structures went in at the docks around the resort on December 1, 2018. Many of them are 15 feet in height. Some of the structures are simply colossal in size. Fishing for crappie (and even a few white bass) is reported to be outstanding around the new artificial fish habitat.

Attached video describes the project:

Went fishing today and it was slow. I had a tough day and my buddy caught a few tough bite for us. Jerk bait was the only thing we got bit on. Several times I had fish pop my line but never got hooked up.

Went out for just a little while today. The wind and the temperature was just a little raw for this old man. Fished around the cove on some of my sweet spots and got a lot of casting practice. I think I was just not patient enough and didn't stick with it long enough. Better luck tomorrow if it gets warm enough. Next week late they say we have a warm up coming well I hope this time they are correct.

Word on the street is they are biting a jig a jerk bait and a crankbait in this are of the lake.

Went out this afternoon for a couple of hours and found that the fish were not eager to bite but you could catch some. I caught fish on a jerk bait  and also on a jig. The fish hit pretty hard but just not often enough. I did get broke off on a jerk bait. We caught fish on secondary points and also on straight banks. The next couple of days are going to be great weather wise so you need to go fishing.

Yesterday was a beautiful day and the fish were biting too. Several of my friends contacted me to tell me of their good fortune not only to brag a little but to rub it in as I am still off the water.  They are catching fish on a jig mainly flipping docks in the backs of the coves. A spinnerbait slowed rolled in the backs flats is working also.  Some nice bass are being caught and on a nice day it really kills me not to be on the water.

The fish are biting a little. People are catching black bass on slow rolling spinnerbaits, sq bills, jerk baits and of course the jig.The fish seemed to located about halfway back to the back of the coves. The fish are still following the bait. Find the shad find the bass.         Crappie can be caught around the docks above the brush.  

Be careful out there with the colder weather and the colder water temps always wear your PFD.

Good Fishing!

Another crappy day here at the lake. The fish are eating a little but not for me. I have had several of my friends tell me that they are catching some days and not others. Sq bills and spinnerbaits are working in the backs of coves where shad are. Find shad find fish.   Crappie fishing is fair guys are fishing jigs above the brush.slow slow slow. .

The fishing has been pretty tough lately according to my sources. The lake temp is good but the fronts are coming about every day. The bite has been on early am topwater and then switching over to a shaker head and fishing it along sides of the docks.  Crappie fishing has been fair over the tops of brush. Guys are shooting docks with pretty good success and catching some nice slabs.
