Fishing Notes

Summertime fishing on Lake of the Ozarks can be quite difficult and confusing. While many big fish are being caught on brush piles in 15′-25′ of water off points or close to deep water, today I caught fish shallow. However, I was fishing early in the morning from 7:30 – 10:30 around sea walls with shade working a chug bug on 4′-10′ of calm water. I had several good hits but was only able to land a few short ones. The 5.14 pounder was caught in about 5′ of water sitting next to a concrete cable anchor. the crazy thing about that fish, is the sun was up high and there was really not any deep water close by. Fishing for bass on Lake of the Ozarks in the summer opens up plenty of options for top water early/late, big jigs/worms in brush and bluff/bluff ends, shady areas of docks, wave breaks, crankbaits, wacky sencos, etc. it just seems that while all of those options are available it is difficult to establish a single pattern. If there has been any single pattern for me this week, it has been 10″ plastic worms in brush piles. It will be interesting to see what Bassing Bob experts have to say tomorrow for our weekly fishing report.
