Fishing Notes

The fish are either quite full from eating all of the dying shad or they left for vacation to Tablerock. For two days in a row, I have not had a single bite, not even a drum, crappie or a white bass. Yesterday I concentrated on the Glaize fishing all my good spots, including secondary points, channel banks, brush piles and docks. Today I spent most of my day fishing Buck Creek at the 7mm of the Osage. Buck Creek is notorious for quality bass especially in the winter. I started at the very back of North Buck Creek and worked my way to the main channel, focusing on secondary points, docks with brush piles, fishing deep brush piles in 20′ of water, fishing slow, dragging every winter bait I have through any brush pile and even fishing the very back areas of cuts in 11′-15′ of water. The bait fish have seemed to disappear. My graph shows fish on the brush, but I cannot buy a bite. Today, I saw some fish suspended in about 15′ of water over 25′ of water on secondary points and channel bank breaks at that depth, but I could not get them to bite. The bite should turn on any day now, but I have been hoping for that the last 3 weeks. I polled many fisherman this evening that fished today and they all report the same results, not bites.
