Fishing Report For Week Ending June 14, 2013

Friday, June 14, 2013

Post spawn fishing is excellent at Lake of the Ozarks this week and should continue through at the least the end of June.

Keeper bass at the Lake of the Ozarks are being caught on a daily basis on points, bluffs, ledges, long points that extend out a long way from the bank to the river and creek channels.    Look at your maps and electronics to locate these long points.   The majority of the fish have generally been positioned toward the last  quarter of the point before it drops into the channel.  With the heavy rains and the release of water from Truman Dam, Ameren is using heavy generation to maintain the lake level.   With that heavy generation, the post spawn bass are positioned toward the edge of points where that generation will bring a buffet flow of food for the bass to feed and fill up after the spawn.   Fish these points with heavy jigs such as the 1 oz. or 3/4 oz. Crock-o-Gator jigs with a Net Bait Paca Craw.  While most colors seem to be working well, the brown, purple, green pumpkin colors along with Texas Craw colors seem to be producing the best.  Another great bait for this pattern is the 5/8 oz shaky head rigged with a soft plastic such at Senco's, Salt Flickers and varying other worm, lizard and creature baits.   Some days the fish seem to be mid way on the water column, for these fish try large swim baits, crank baits and heaving spinner baits.   There are still plenty of quality fish in coves and around spawning areas.  These late spawning fish can also be caught behind and around the shallower areas of docks, off laydowns and around cover.   These fish are also being caught on jigs and shaky heads, as well as wacky worms and top water baits.  Ledges, bluffs and bluff cuts are also producing quality bass with heavy jigs and shaky heads.  Night time bass fishing is also kicking into gear at the Lake of the Ozarks, evening/night time bass are being caught on 10" worms, big jigs and top water baits like the Zara Spook.  Early morning fishing is also good, fish the Zara Spook, Buzz Bait and PopR as well as jigs, worms, shaky head and wacky worms.  All baits mentioned can be purchased here at the lake at Fitz Fishing Bait and Tackle.  Good Fishing!!!!
