Tournament Notes

350 teams today, thats a lot of High School and Jr. High Teams on Lake of the Ozarks.   The bite was a bit off today versus yesterday.  Yesterday there were 3 bags over 20 pounds, and several high teens with 114 teams.

Today the winning weight with 350 boats was 18.07.   The fish on this lake change often, especially in spring with somewhat dramatic weather changes.

Yesterday with rain and nasty conditions, the big fish were mostly caught shallow on the main lake rocks.  Today, with sunny conditions and high pressure conditions, the bite was far more scattered, main lake was a good today but not as good as yesterday, except the morning main lake bite was good.

The winners today caught fish early on the main lake today (yesterday, they had 21 pounds on main lake), that bite shut down for them when the sun came out bright and high.  They changed it up, fishing the backs of creeks on creek channel swings leading to spawning pockets on bottom baits, mostly a jig on the bank and some off the bank too.

Most big fish today were caught again on moving baits, spinner bait and crank baits (wiggle wart and Spro Rock Crawler) from the bank out to 10′ of water either main lake banks/main lake and inside of main lake points with big rocks and also backs of creeks on rock tranistions and pea gravel, pockets, secondary points and around docks toward the backs of the creeks/coves.

The entire lake produced quality fish today.  It seemed from the interviews I did, that the best bite was from Hurricane Deck Bridge to the Dam, including the Nianguas, Linn  Creek, Tan Tara Area, Mid to Lower Glaize, Shawnee Bend, Alhonna Cove, Gravois and dam area.  Thats a lot of water, but as I said, the whole lake is fishing good with moving baits and bottom baits shallow on the right banks,  main lake points and main lake banks, secondary points and back into the spawning pockets and back cove shallows.
