    First Time on the Meramec

    Hello, my Dad and I fished out of Meramec State Park on Sunday. This was our first trip to the Meramec with my Blazer jet boat. We fished the bluffs 1/2 mile above and below the park ramp and had a great day. We started about 1PM and fished till 6PM. We caught smallmouth, largemouth, spotted bass, crappie and goggle eye. My Dad was using a green color small shad rap and I rotated between a 3" white swimbait and a whopper plopper. The best smallmouth we had stalked and devoured the plopper but came off, he was probably 15" or so...all in all, we had about 20 fish for the day. The water was moving pretty good but was a little skinny in spots. We saw one canoe and that was it for the day. Next time, we may try Onondaga or further downstream (St. Clair).

    The Fourth Was With Me

    Fished a few hours last night and had a great night. I fished mid-lake between point 5 and 6, mid way back in the creek arms. I started with topwater while it was cloudy and switched to a wacky rigged senko since I could see followers. I had 15 fish and 3 that I missed. Had about 7 small keepers in the mix and almost had a grand slam! I had the boat in 20-25ft of water casting to the bank. I didn’t see anything locked on beds, but I’m sure they were there. I just fish for fun so this is about as good as it gets for me. Headed back out in a few...

    The Fourth Was With Me

    Fished from 1PM - 6PM today....they didn't want the Senko in the high sun so I switched to the Ned rig and fished deeper. Caught a few on that and then a few more on a 4" swimbait once I got some shadows and wind. Ended with 7 total, 3 keepers. Same areas in Spring Branch...lots of big boats out today. 65 degree water in Spring Branch.

    KC area again today

    We probably saw you out there today. We were out for an hour this morning, then afternoon 2-6. We fished from Cow to Mill and had 3 keepers up shallow (2 spots, 1 smallmouth). All on cole slaw spinnerbait from the bluff to backs of creeks.

    3/28 Water Conditions

    Coming down DD, point 5 to point 7 looks stained at the most (from the road). Doesn't look too bad here at the house ramp either. Saw boats fishing and running around point 7. update: we fished from 5-7 this evening. 7’ visibility and no real debris except some leaves and small branches. Water was a little milky in Spring Branch...53 degrees. More bird obstacles than anything else. No fish for us...back out tomorrow.

    3/28 Water Conditions

    I'm headed down tonight with my son...we were hoping to fish tomorrow evening and then Friday/Saturday. We are around Point 5/Spring Branch. Looks like it's coming up quick but with the gates open that should slow the rise. http://www.swl-wc.usace.army.mil/pages/data/tabular/htm/tabrock.htm
  8. Had a great time at the BassBoatCentral Midwest Rally out of Bull Shoals Boat Dock this weekend. We caught lots of fish on the cloudy days but everything was tougher on Saturday with the high sky. Still a great time. Here's some GoPro footage of the bass at BSBD too:

    8-11-15 night fishing

    Awesome report and insight on the bushes....what advantage do you think this jig gives you over a regular spinnerbait? Just the loose head?

    Way to go!

    Underwater Camera?

    I use an Aqua-Vu on our dock. It's a few years old and is the micro camera with LEDs. It's not easy to control, but you can spin the camera just by spinning the line with your fingers. The LEDs light it up pretty good and I can see on the bottom in 30-40'. The kids love seeing fish and all the junk on the bottom. In direct sun, it's tough to see the screen, but works great on the dock. We are around point 5 so it's pretty clear here.
