Hot Hot Hot Weather that is Fishing is a little tough but you can catch them now. Typical dog day time of the year. The fish are chasing shad in some of the coves if you are lucky enough to be in the right spot at the right time. Top water works the best on the bit slowly swimming a swim bait under the shad will work also and usually catch bigger fish.

Fishing here at the lake has become real hit and miss. I like to catch them but they always don't want to bite. I have been catching fish on a good day chasing shad and that is always a good time. The deep water bite sems to all but gone for me. The fish are starting to move shallow but it is going to take a while before they settle down and become consistent.  the water flow has finally slowed down a little and they have been running water so long that I think it really doesn't matter to the bass anymore.  II will still take water flow anytime in my book.

Fishing here at the lake has gone from being unbelievable great to tougher that a two dollar steak. The deep fish have gone away and the shallow fish are just not commiting to bite for me.The fish might or might not bite a top water bait early it just really depends on their mood. Heading out now to do some midday fishing.

Slow day on the lake today. The fish are changing and they are gone from all of the hot spots.Fished today and caught short fish only. They would not hit a jig crankbait ora big worm. The dropshot is always good for a fish would not even get a sniff today. Caught fish on a topwater bait and a sq bill. I am seeing big schools of shad deep so I guess the big fish are eating well.

The fishing has slowed down a bit but I would still consider it good. The fish are shell shocked after the past few weeks of big boat traffic. They are still running water through the dam at over 50,000 cubic feet per second and Truman lake is dumping the same amount of water. It is holding our lake steady however it is like a river running through it. Can you see the current not really but if you are close to the dam it will move your boat slowly. This pushes the bait fish out on the main lake points and the bass are right there waiting to munch.  This causes a problem as there is so much bait fish that it is hard to get them to eat anything else..  The bass are eating jigs worms and crankbaits.   Good fishing

the water tem is in the mid 80s and they are still running water. Went yesterday morning late and my clients caught fish but not as good as a early bite. They caught fish on a drop shot and a topwater bait. It was terribly hot so we did not hang in one place to long. It is going to cool down a little next week so I sure am looking forward to that.

I haven't posted in a while because I have not been able to send pictures from my phone. The fishing here at the lake is still very good. They are still running water and that makes the fish feed. I have been catching them on a drop shot, Crankbait and a big worm.We have been catching fish in the four plus range everyday with a fish up to seven from time to time. Now is the time to fish at Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.

A few days ago I would of said the fishing was slow to fair. But not when you find the honey hole. Lucked out a found some good fish and they are loving to eat a worm. The past few trips have been really rewarding. I have had a string of youngsters and they have been really fun to be with. The fish have been eating a big worm pretty good.

The lake is like bath water now and they are still running water to lower Truman lake. Looks like that is going to be going on for a while yet. Good news for the lake fisherman. the fish are biting worms and crankbaits. The youngsters Jordan and Hunter fished with me yesterday and caught some nice fish. Today I was off so I went out with my neighbor and caught some good ones. The biggest one was my third cast of the day. Dang I hate when that happens. The fish were eating a Big Ed's Custom Crankbait in a crazy crawdad color and they were also eating a plastic worm.

It is summertime here at the lake. It is hotter than hammers on a six gun and there are boats everywhere. The fish have been biting and that is a good thing. I have been catching them on the crazy painted crawdad off of points. The worm bite is still on but it is a little harder to catch them for some reason.The fish are still located on points but they just don't want to eat.
