    New To Lake of the Ozarks

    pretty hard to target multiple species.they require different fishing lures or equipment.you will do a lot better if you pick one and roll with it.you really need to know the area to do otherwise or be one heck of a fisherman

    Jerk Bait Problem

    Longer rods with softer actions allow for longer casts which acts as a pendulum to launch the bait.Sometimes you need to be off the bank a long ways to catch those suspending fish.slow is better in the winter.I used to weight my own stickbaits before you could buy them that way,like 40 years ago.One other tip is to make sure that the bait tracks straight back to the boat on a straight retrieve ,that will insure the bait will work properly on the correct retrieve.Patience is the key when working one this time of year.You could just throw an Arig and you don't have to worry about any of this.Talk about hard hits,you wont believe how hard they will bite that outfit.

    Jerk Bait Problem

    There is a tendency for one to overwork a suspending stickbait,subtle twitches and slow short pulls will get a lot more bites this time of year.You also need to pause the bait longer say 30 seconds or more between movements.You wont believe how hard they will smack it.Hold on to your rod.The softer rod is better for hard runs at the boat,the rod will cushion some the hard pulls and keep the hook in their mouth

    Jerk Bait Problem

    Definitely use a softer rod and mono as fluorocarbon sinks.I use a Skeet Reese jerkbait/topwater model rod and 8 or 10 lb Big Game line for open banks and 12-15 lb around cover like standing timber and laydowns.Sweep the rod on the hookset.Spro 110 stickbait in pro blue on sunny days and table rock shad on cloudy days.

    61 yards my longest shot

    pretty technical for popping tree rats boys.I bet it is fun though.I used to shoot them with a .22 ruger with cci minimags.Shot a fox squirrel so far up in a sycamore once that by the time it .hit the ground it was a gray.

    Big One Got Away

    It is always fun to watch Laker get on a nice trout. That fish is in trouble if it sticks around.It always gets released and maybe a little wiser than before.

    Big One Got Away

    Laker I don't think I have ever seen you throw a streamer and I fish around you more than anyone you know.P.S. I have plenty if you ever change your mind
