Fishing Notes

The morning bite was awesome today. I fished from 8:00AM to 10:00AM and caught 8 bass of which 4 were keepers. The sky was overcast and wind very light. The fish were just inside of the main lake points, in about 4′-8′ of water. Rocky points (not bluff ends) were a key to the bite. I simply went from point to point, caught a fish or missed a couple and moved to the next point. The afternoon/early evening bite was quite w bit tougher. With the wind picking up, I fished the points with worms and jigs as well as the backs of coves along the cove creek channel. I caught a few fish, but no keepers in 3 hours of exploring. The top water bite never showed up this evening for me as a cold front with rain came in about 6:00 and that seemed to slow down the bite. The KVD Sexy Dawg is an awesome top water bait, check out Fitz Tackle in Osage Beach for these and other great top water baits. Be sure to ask for Wayne or Ben to help you out with the right baits that are working for bass, they will always get you the right baits with rigging instruction, where and how to work the bait for that day(s).
