Fishing Notes

Bluebird sky, light wind, clear water and a Saturday in June with big boats and ski boats everywhere. The fish are moving to their post spawn feeding locations, which at Lake of the Ozarks is primarily points and in particular long points when the dam generation is heavy. However, considering the boat traffic, trying to hold on to a point or long main lake point is like fishing on a roller coaster ride. So, I fished early morning from 6-8AM and got several explosions on the Zara Spook but only a couple of short ones ate the bait. The bait fish and bass on points are high to mid way in the water column over 20-40′ deep, those are hard fish to catch. So this afternoon I went up into the river system 10mm of the Grand Glaize, caught squirt after squirt on bluffs, but only one small keeper. My good friend Jack Uxa, Jacks Guide Service also fished the same area of the Glaize in the afternoon, practicing for a guide trip tomorrow. In two hours, he caught a limit of keeper fish in shallow coves around very shallow 1-3′ cover – lay downs, sticks, shallow brush, etc. on buzz bait and frog. That pattern worked earlier this week for Jack and me way up the Osage. So, the river systems are producing around shallow cover, bluffs are producing short fish and few keepers on jigs and long points will produce well when the big boats go home for the week :).
