Tournament Notes

Wow, what a tournament. Lake of the Ozarks is fishing big and fishing good. The BASS Central College Central Regional anglers whacked the past three days. No A-Rig and yet there were multiple 20 pound bags brought the scales each day including multiple5,6 and 7 pounders and today one that was just under 8 pounds. While the anglers were again a bit tight lipped about their bite because Saturday is a single day FLW college tournament on LOZ and most of the teams that fished the BASS event this week will also be fishing the FLW tomorrow. Here is the info I gathered from the interviews on stage and some side bar discussions. The pattern is, there are a lot of them right now. Teams caught them good on the stick bait on secondary and main lake points, their was a good spinner bait bite shallow and along side of docks, the nearly 8 pounder was caught on a spinner bait along side of a dock in 13′ of water. The Rock Crawler and Wiggle Wart were also an important bait this week, I actually think according to my discussions with the fisherman, the rock crawler/wiggle wart were the main bait for catching keepers on mixed rock banks leading to spawning pockets, but the spinner bait caught the bigger tanks over 5 pounds. Many fisherman also talked about catching them on the jig including football head jigs on secondary points. There also a lot of fish caught around the lower Glaize, the anglers taking advantage of the released fish from recent big weight tournaments. The top 20 teams out of a field of 138 reported catching quality fish way up the Osage river on creature baits/jigs and spinner baits, the Nianguas on jig and spinner, Hurricane Deck area on all baits and toll bridge to Dam on all baits with the predominant bait on the lower end being the stick bait. What an amazing catch this week for all of these teams. These guys really are great fisherman and for young men, really are quite knowledgeable about bass fishing. Each of them were also total gentlemen and well mannered young man. Fishing is an amazing sport for our youth. BassingBob team was so honored to be a part of such a well run event by BASS. Congratulations to each angler that competed and to the 19 teams that will move on to the National College Championship. The BassingBob community will be rooting for each of you to have success.
