Fishing Notes

Today was a fun day of learning for me fishing with one of Lake of the Ozarks best tournament fisherman Mark Dunbar. While our day for catching keepers was dis appointing for both of us I felt very confident about every spot that we fished. Mark had taken second place the previous weekend in US Anglers Choice Tournament with a bag over 20 pounds. We fished several of the spots that he had success during that tournament but the bite just never materialized the times we were on those banks. Mark did catch a 5.14 ounce bass on a jerk bait run over a brush pile just after 8 in the morning, so our confidence level was high early on. That was the only big one we caught all day. As a co-angler, while you hope to catch some good ones, it is a great way to learn from good fisherman. Mark was a great teacher for me. While he was obviously focused on fishing and winning, he was very open to answering the gazillion questions that I always seem to ask of the pros. I learned many things from Mark, but the two that stick out most in my mind are, that fish will start biting on the wiggle wart at about 42 degree water temp and that at 48 degree water temps, a waive of bass will start working their way from main lake into the creeks, thus it is a good time to fish the first stretch of banks just inside of the main lake.
