  1. Big Bass Bass

    I have been mostly fishing the Glaize this week and amazingly, the water is still 48-49 degrees in the morning. But today it finally got warmer this afternoon, up to 55 in the back of some of the coves. As expected i have caught keeper bass on an A rig, spinner bait and the rock crawler. But non would of been money fish unless they pay for a 3.5 pounder this year.. No one i know that has been fishing this week has come up with a solid pattern so far. Unless they are not talking about it. But like usual, plenty of bass will be caught this weekend and all the spots will be paid. Good luck to all.
  2. Big Bass Bass

    As most probably know, the Spring BBB is the weekend. Who's in? Wonder how the weather will affect the bass fishing? I know the locals are still catching them with A rigs, jerk baits, jigs, and spinnerbaits. For me personally, like usual, i have no clue. I hope to get out and find out for myself starting today. And then i will join the crowd and see if i can get lucky this weekend. If i find anything working i will report back. Good luck to all fishing it.
  3. Crappie picking up

    Seems like the bigger girls are showing up. Lot of thick 11's and 12'" and the one on top is 13" But is was an afternoon bite, at least on Friday. i did not crappie fish Saturday or Sunday.

    i always say that about bacon. You could wrap anything in bacon and cook it and it would be great. Like a dog turd. Where do you get Zatarains Crispy Southern?
  5. Got into the act...

    Nice fish. The most amazing part of this story is Hog Wally skipped fishing because he had to work!
  6. Old Plug, a lot of what you post is hard to understand but this sentence is 100% true.
  7. 8 lber caught yesterday

    Results from the MoBassFishin' Solo series tournament as reported on the Bassin Bob website. Today Bobby Albert smashed 25.10 pounds of Lake of the Ozarks Bass anchored by a giant 8.10 pounder. Bobby fished from the 50mm and above and reported catching his monster bag on the spinner bait and jig. Second place was won by Bassing Bob member, John Vonahn. John also had second big bass, 5.70 pounds. John reported catching a lot of fish on some banks in the Gravois, he reported catching his fish on 6th sense stickbait. Wiggle wart crawdad (Original) and shad rap. Most anglers reported catching their fish on the stick bait, jig, A-rig and crank baits, mid way to the back of creeks on rock transition banks and secondary points.

  9. What will you be doing at age 67?

    I am 60 now and when i was younger I did lawncare and landscaping for 20 years and beat my body up. Have had shoulder surgery on one shoulder and knee surgery on one knee and they are telling me i need to get the other ones done too. I have had a desk job for 20 years now and my back hurts every time i stand up, They say sitting is the new smoking and i believe it. Hope to retire soon so i can enjoy my remaining years before i can't do the things i want to do anymore.
  10. Roostertail Sizes?

    Not sure of the exact size but the ones I was using for trout at the White river were pretty small. Then I tried using the same ones for white bass at LOZ and the blades did not spin. So I am thinking the current helped the blades spin on the river. And I went to the next size up on the lake and that helped get the blade spinning.
  11. Where to buy on Lake of the Ozarks

    We just sold our river place and bought a condo in Osage Beach for the very same reason. We are 5 minutes and two turns off 54 just after crossing the GG bridge. And like you say, in the middle of everything. And the State park and PB2 are 5 minutes away by land and less by water so we plan on spending a lot of time there. I hope to be retiring there very soon. But in the meantime will be there every weekend. We looked everywhere before buying from the dam area, down HH and all the way to Camdenton but decided Osage Beach was the best access wise.
  12. How tough are you?

    I agree with the others. the older I get the less I like the cold. in my other life I worked lawn care and landscaping which meant I was always outside and loved winter and hated summer. I always said you can put on layers to stay warm in winter. but can only take off so many layers in summer without causing an uproar. Now I am 60 and have been sitting behind a desk for 20 years and I can not tolerate cold near as much as I once could. We have gone to the white river every year in February for almost 30 years and we have fished many times from the boats with temps in the teens. Now days I am happier sitting inside with a fire going, drinking adult beverages and playing cards all day.

    Caught this one while crappie fishing in December off a condo dock a few years ago. I was vertical fishing in the slips and was not having much luck and went out to the second to last slip which is about 35 foot deep. Let the little jig go all the way to the bottom and got a solid thump and pulled to set the hook and it didn't move much. Then it took off for deeper water and was ripping off line and I ended up laying on my belly and pushed the little rod I was using all the way into the water to just before the reel went under and basically fought it like that. Took about 20 minutes to get to where I could see it. Then another 10 to get it to the surface and I had to use both hands under it to flip it up onto the dock. It was a little over 10lbs.

    i agree 100%. i love vertical jigging off the condo docks because i live for the tick or actually a thump is even better. i have learned a light tick usually means a crappie and a lot of times it is a small crappie. A solid thump came be a bigger crappie, a bass, a walleye, a big drum or a big catfish. i have caught all these after a solid thump.
  15. 11-26-17 Glaize Crappie

    Same deal for me and the wife this weekend. Fished off the docks for a bit Friday night and got a few. Saturday put the boat in and went looking for an isolated dock near the channel and first one we tried, we never left. Caught our fish pitching into the boat well close to the floats. But even in the middle of the well we were getting fish down to about 6 foot. Color did not seem to matter.
