  1. Not too much to report but for what it's worth - Put in about 7 to calmer than expected conditions and ran down river. Decided to focus on a small area since we hadn't been on the water in months. Started on main lake points on the east side of the pictured map. Fished both points and inside the cove with jerkbait, spinnerbait, wart and a shaky head with one dink to show for it on a wart. Left to shoot across to the SE facing point of Wooley creek but it had a boat on it so we fished a couple wind blown swings inside the creek with no luck. Water temp was cooler as we moved into the creek (50.9down to 50 even in the back 3rd) so we worked back to the mouth of wooley. Caught a few a piece with only one picture worthy LM that went 3.7. Caught them just inside the point in about 8ft. Hit the next similar facing point to the north with one more dink and called it a day by 1130. Felt like it should have been better but there's some piece of the puzzle we missed on. NH

    Baxter area Friday

    Thanks for the report champ, that sums up at least part of why we struggled. Couldnt get many bites on moving baits but literally said to ourselves, "today is not the day to drag something, just wouldn't make sense."

    What to expect? cape fair to pt 12

    Champ, As someone who doesn't tournament fish, I don't worry as much about giving away my 'spots.' Surely anyone who comes to this site for info knows fishing wind blown main lake points is a good starting point. I get the vultures that don't contribute could be frustrating to you guys who tourney fish, but if those vultures are following my lead they're of no threat to win! ☺ The thing i hoped for after posting a detailed outing is getting detailed responses from someone else who had more luck. We struggled yesterday and we frankly don't know what else to do for more success.

    thanks noodle. the way the forecast looks i doubt I'll be dragging anything to 30ft. With you guys' info im sure I'll start at bluff ends and main lake points throwing jerk, wiggle wart, crawler, squarebill, spinnerbait... but will go check out some in the creeks etc. Will post a full report when i get off the water

    Thanks so much cheesemaster for the info, I'm also not one to fish deep with any success. I'm sure I'll have plenty to report of things NOT to do to catch em ☺. Happy thanksgiving!

    Friday night outing

    Launched at 7-ish from mutton last night, fished til about 130. Found them on a couple channel swings and points on main lake. Caught a few deep as 25ft before the sun went down then started catching them much shallower on those same swings. Also after dark found some off those swings in shallower pockets. Shaky head worm in black w/green flake did most the damage. Nothing too big, biggest was just 2.5 but a fun night with maybe 30 boated. Full moon is coming, planning to go back next weekend

    Coming up to stay with a friend and run around hunting bass all weekend. Dont make it to LOTO very often, was hopeful someone could shed some light on what the bass are up to the last week? Also, anyone know current water temp and visibility? Staying close to "camp pa he tsi" area, which is state park, right? Unfamiliar with lake... Thanks for info, any and all input is greatly appreciated!

    Also hoping to go tomorrow afternoon. http://www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/District-Lakes/ says 40-41 as of yesterday. Thought it might be higher than that. Surely plenty of color but not muddy anymore. Water temps say i should start main lake swings to target bass, can anybody confirm? Thanks!

    dink fest in the mud

    I fished out of cape fair down to wooley and piney with my wife from about noon-5. Tough day for me, too. Caught one on shaky head and one on a wart, both in wooley creek. Water was dirty, maybe 8-12 inches of visibility from cape down through piney. Dont fish quite as hard when wife comes along, but we tried all sorts of things and nothing worked. Oh well, nice weather for 3-3

    dink fest in the mud

    Things change quickly, but was this bite main lake? Swings? Transitions? Points? Aldo, if anyone has been around cape fair since the rain, is it log jam city or runnable? Thanks to all, great resource here to help the hopelessly lost such as i!

    Be My Valentine Day

    Thanks for the descriptions guys. I actually rarely fish Table Rock, im closer to stockton, and when i do im usually out of cape or mill creek. I was mainly was hoping to take those descriptions and apply them to map study to find my own spots... i appreciate being shown a specific spot, but half the fun in fishing out of a bass boat is the hunt for them, and using maps and planning is the most rewarding part!
