Fishing Notes

While the conditions seemed ideal, overcast skies, moderate wind, bait fish high in the water column everywhere, mid 70’s temperature, 83 degree water temps and slightly rising water, but….it is still July fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks. While it has been so tempting to fish shallow, which I did in pockets, around docks and in the backs of coves, the fish are still deep. All of the fish that I caught today were deep on points, in brush piles and along bluff banks in 15′-25′ of water. However, to try to figure things out for this fishing report and to see if I could report something different and new, I did spend considerable time fishing shallow with 10′ plastic worms, crank baits, buzz bait and spook. I fished from 12:00PM – 2:PM and from 6:00PM to 8:30PM. Bass still seemed to be scattered and my most consistent bite is still deep with a big jig or around brush piles with a 10″ plastic worm.
