10/27 Dam area

Recommended Posts

Fished Truman for the first time.  Launched at the state park and headed to the dam area but spent the first couple of hours dealing with outboard issues. I've not fished out of my boat at all this year, and despite a tuneup, it was running rough, to put it mildly. I'm reasonably certain it was due to crud in the carburetors. Finally, though, whatever it was burned up or passed through the jets or whatever, and the blinking thing ran fairly well and eventually seemed normal.

I fished the weir area near the dam in the middle of a bunch of boats and didn't touch a fish. I did see one hybrid caught in a couple of hours. Headed back to the launch to check out some other areas and ended up hooking what I think was a good-sized catfish and landing one that went home for dinner.  Also caught a 13-inch crappie--both trolling crank baits. 

I'm thinking that the next trip will be closer to home in the Grand River arm looking for whites or crappies in the back of some coves. We'll see....
