  1. Wounded Warrior tournament

    I don't have any advice on Truman, but here is the link to the Fishing for Freedom website. I stop and BS with a couple of the guys who are members of the Leavenworth Bass Club from time to time. They were still looking for volunteers for next weekend. It also sounded like there were going to be lots of participants and there was a need for a few more boats to accommodate the needs of the warriors. Unfortunately I won't be able to participate. Below is the link if anyone is interested. http://www.fishingforfreedom.us/
  2. Bass fishing at Warsaw

    Also be careful running up and down the water. I live around MM81 during weekends and the depths can change real quick on you. You can be running in 30 foot just like the GPS says then bam you'll be in 4 foot. As far as finding rock PM me and I'll show you on the map a few places up in Turkey and Cole Camp creek where there is some rock. I've not really fished these areas this summer because of heavy boat traffic
  3. Help Trolling Crank Bait Depth

    Personally I have counter reels so I can replicate same depths. I simply got some driftmasters from Cabelas. Also consider using lead core line. That will drop you down as well.
  4. Tan-Tar-A Resort Sold and becoming Margaritaville

    This is why I enjoy living closer to the Truman Dam on weekends...we have the "Old Oar House" and "BuckNakid"...we don't try to hide our Hillbilly ways.
  5. Noise/irritation levels at MP 75?

    I've got a place at the 81 MM on the north side right at the Cole Camp and Turkey Creek area. Traffic isn't that bad in the area. There really isn't much boat traffic to complain about. This time of the year you have some get ski and tubing going on during the day...but to me it isn't that bad. During spoonbill season the are you are talking about is loaded with boats...but they are all going about 4-5 MPH. Depending on what you are fishing for and what time of the year you are looking to fish for kind of dictates success in the area. Wrench is also correct....it is a pretty good haul to get anywhere from where I am. I typically haul my own fuel (14 gallon tank) because it is about 25 minutes to get to Warsaw for me. But I'm only there as a weekender so it isn't that bad. You can get fuel at BuckNaked 76 1/2 MM.
  6. Fish kill?

    There must have been a tournament on Father's Day weekend...there were a bunch of guys up in Cole Camp creek hitting the same area. I know exactly where the hole is past the idle area right before the Girl Scout camp.
  7. Fish kill?

    Thanks for the post with this article. I'm around MM81 (Cole Camp/Turkey Creek) and have noticed a bunch of fish floating over the past couple of weeks. I'm wondering if this is the reason the bite has been slow over the past month or so....well at least for me.
  8. Anyone been out?

    Water is still being ran but not like it has in the past couple of weeks. TOW on Sunday at MM81 was right at 70. It is warmer up in Cole Camp Creek and the shallower areas. Once you get past Cardinal Cove at MM71 it drops down to about 65. I went out for simply a boat ride instead of fishing. There really isn't as much debris as there was a few weeks ago. I will be out this weekend this past weekend.
  9. Sunday 5/28

    Launched at 1 PM and headed to MM80. Water was moving pretty good with lots of debris in the lake. Way too many boats just driving around. TOW was 68. I turned back and went up Cole Camp Creek and found it to be very quiet and calm. Fished a couple of bluff areas using minnows then eventually trolled back to the launch. Only caught a couple of dink crappie. TOW in Cole Camp Creek was 72.
  10. Fished last night

    I might not run all the way up there this weekend....my fishing partner (wife) is pregnant right now. She's been pretty nauseous the past few days. I think finding a place with less movement of the boat would be wise. I'll run into either Cole Camp or Turkey Creek. It has seemed pretty slow this Spring in the area for Crappie, hybrids, and whites. But this is my first spring in the area. I'm sure I'll learn where to go in time.
  11. Fished last night

    Good work. I assume you went all the way up to the dam area? I'll hopefully be able to get out on the water a bit this weekend. I'm probably going to run up Cole Creek instead of the rough water closer to the dam.
  12. Slow

    Sorry for the late report. Launched at MM81 and went all the way up to the dam on Saturday. Water was 55 degrees. Trolled flickershad for about 1 1/2 hours up around the dam with no bite. Didn't appear anyone around the dam was catching anything. Fired the boat back up and stopped short of the 65 bridge and trolled a bluff. Once again no luck. Called it a day and loaded up. Did see lots of spoonbill tied off on the side of boats. Ran into the owner of Shady J's bait shop later on Saturday night. He said crappie were hitting up Cole Camp Creek on Saturday. I must have traveled the wrong way on the water once again.
  13. Slow

    I snagged almost a 3 foot Buffalo while snaggin' for an hour or so two weeks ago. Do you ever try to run bottom bouncers with death rigs or worm harnesses? Either way I've decided I'll motor up that way and give a report.
  14. Slow

    I think I might just motor all the way up to the dam on Saturday and troll back to the Oar House. Like I mentioned earlier, I just bought a home in the area and really just getting used to it. I've got a few spots up Cole Creek I want to try once the level goes up.
  15. White Bass Movie

    X3 for sure.
