Report from Cape Fair area

Recommended Posts

As I mentioned earlier this week I had hoped to go today. Weather couldn't have been better, plenty of clouds with minimal wind. I launched at Cape Fair around 1pm and proceeded south to a main lake point. Was seeing water temps ranging from 52 - 55 degrees. Had two spots that were willing to cooperate on a spider jig in 10-12 feet of water off the point. Unfortunately, I proceeded south trying the same idea at several locations but could not find any more takers.

Decided to head north above the bridge at Cape Fair and found water temps ranging from 56 - 59 at the backs of cuts off the river channel. I found several more fish that had moved shallow, caught a total of 13 on the day. None of them were keeper size. Most were caught on plastic jerk baits with a few coming on finesse worms. Tons of carp shallow doing their thing. All but three of the bass I caught were spots. I enjoyed the increased activity over my previous trips but would have preferred to have hooked s few over the 15 inch minimum. A lot of other boats were up that direction but a lot of them looked to playing with white bass.

Hope this helps somebody out there. Tomorrow looks like another good day to go but after that weather may take a turn for the worse. Good Luck.

Hey Cajun thanks for the report. I'm from Nixa and plan on putting in at Cape Fair tomorrow. I just missed going today when something came up at work and I had to go in for a bit.

Hope to see you out there tomorrow. I will be in the little red Skeeter

I went out of Bridgeport with my partner yesterday, Wednesday.

Female crappie are staging off the usual banks in bunches in 30-35 feet of water. There's lots of them on the scope, but they're suspended and hardly biting. Slow-trolling swimming minnows, we got five good keepers and no short ones. People fishing with minnows were catching more, but got mostly short crappie.

Below Ashercane we scoped white bass, and got 5 big ones by trolling Roostertails. The whites are scattered and moving around.

For the middle of March, that's a pretty good trip. There are lots of fish in the right places, and in about 10 more days I think there will be a lot of good panfishing around there.

I have another friend that has a ZX225 and lives just north of Clever. I have a littel SX170 with a 90. Maybe we can meet up at Cape Fair someday and have a fishing day?

I appreciate he fishing reports. They eliminate some of the water, or at least gives a plan of attack.
