  1. Not sure about a bass report, however I did catch 15-20 bass per trip while crappie fishing. Most were small, but there were a few keepers sprinkled in. They will give the old crappie rod a workout! Brad
  2. I should take more pictures! It's been an awkward year with the water, hoping it gets to normal soon. The plan is to be on the water on a regular basis! Brad
  3. It's been a while since I've posted a report. Here you go! Crappie are slightly scattered around brush and standing timber in isolated areas, however other areas (within a mile) they are stacked tightly together. If you aren't getting bit or catching multiple fish in a particular area (ex: brush pile) watch your graph about a boat length away from the pile, we caught several just suspended 20-30 feet from the brush. Recently went out for two days and fished both the Pomme and Lindley arms. Had 30 keepers both days in under three hours. The fish are solid, thick and very healthy. Here's the details: Crappie are 8-12' deep in 16-30' of water. They are biting both vertical jig as well as pitching and swimming it back. The bite is light and you need to pay close attention. I used the following jigs and colors for these trips: Crappie Slammers jigs (available at I AM Outdoors on Hwy 65 in Buffalo, MO, you should check out this store, it's awesome!) Style: Lil' Shad, Shimmer Stix, Thinner Minner Color: Electric Lime, Glow Chart, Toothpaste, Pink Now the lake is nearly back to normal I hope to be on the water more! Good luck - catch a boat load! Brad
  4. Due to high water we will cancel the June 15th Crappie Slammers Tournament. Thanks for your understanding. Brad
  5. Sorry for the delay, I've been out of the country the past several weeks. The entry is $25 per person, you can have as many as you want in the boat, the boat will weigh 7 fish for the team total. Most people fish with 2-3 per boat. Thanks, Brad
  6. Currently it's 22' plus!!! It is raining with more rain in the forecast - doesn't look good for a while. Hopefully the Mississippi gets down quickly and all the lakes can start releasing water to ease things. It will be an interesting next few months on the lake. Hopefully the officials can chime in and let us know what they are anticipating. Brad
  7. Tournament Rules 1. Participation is open to all. Entry date and time will determine boat position. 2. Tackle and Equipment: All artificial baits, lures and live bait may be used. All fish must be caught on rod and reel. 3. All participants are expected to follow high standards of sportsmanship and must comply with ALL Missouri Department of Conservation laws and regulations. Participants are allowed to fish anywhere on tournament lake except 10 yards from another competitors boat. Participants must fish with at least on foot on the boat. 4. Final results and prize money will be determined by the pounds and ounces of each boats catch during the tournament. Only crappie will be weighed. A 9” minimum length on each fish with a boat limit of 7 fish. The penalty for a short fish will be the loss of that fish plus 6 ounces. Any crappie that appears to have been mangled, mashed, mauled, altered, frozen or iced will result in immediate disqualification. 5. In case of a tie the winner will be determined by the biggest fish, if a tie still continues a coin will be flipped. 6. Check in late penalty: Participants who are not in the official check-in area at the appointed time will be penalized 1 pound per minute to be deducted from the team’s total weight. Any competitor more than 15 minutes late will be credited with no weight. 7. Unless previously stated any violation of the above rules, with tangible proof, will result in immediate disqualification.

  11. Crappie fishing is excellent. We had two limits Saturday. Fished both arms of the lake, found them on trees in 10-30 fow about 10-14 feet deep. Most are around 8.5 - 9.5" . We probably had three or four shorts for every keeper. We didn't fish around the Wheatland area but it has been real good over there. Brad
  12. I haven't even added the points up! Congrats on the win - still waiting to see your dad give you guys your dollar!!!!

  14. Crappie fishing is fantastic. The keepers are starting to show up, although there are still a ton of shorts. Just posted a report with pics. Brad
  15. Had a great trip on Pomme yesterday. Fished in the evening and had two limits in just over two hours. Fished standing timber and brush (found a few new piles!) with jigs. Jig color didn't seem to matter much although blue and pink worked well (two of my favs, I'm sure you can tell if you read my reports). Fished everything from 6' of water to 50' of water, there are crappie everywhere. Probably had 3-4 shorts for every keeper. Here's a few pics for you to enjoy. Brad
