Fishing Notes

Only 2.5 hours on the water today from 5:00P – 7:30PM. I fished up the Glaize with a primary focus on fishing deep brush piles around points and bluff ends and just inside of these locations. The fish on the graph continue to seem to be suspended in these areas with lots of bait fish mid to high in the water column. The quality fish caught (while not any hawgs) were in around cover, close to brush piles and around log jams in bluff cuts in about 10′ of water. You would mostly find this type of cover in way up the Osage, Glaize or Niangua. I also fished the fluttering spoon, buzz bait, minus crank baits and medium diving crank baits, but no fish on those, but those baits should produce in certain areas. I also fished shallow docks in the backs of coves for about 30 minutes, based on a tip by one of Bassing Bob Experts. A Bassing Bob Professional Advisor caught (2) 5 pounders yesterday evening inside of main lake points in shallow brush with a big COG Jig and Big COG Shaky Head with a 10″ trick worm, he indicated that brush was the key to his big bites.
