Crazy spotted bass question

Recommended Posts

Strictly my opinion but:

1. Osage below bagnell

2. Black river below Clearwater 

3. (tie) lower meramec as in below mouth of bourbeuse

3. (Tie) middle big river (like the stretch from around Desloge to Washington state park. Seems like this stretch has been producing at least one 18-19 inch spot a summer over the past 4-5 summers.

I agree completely with Brian.  Osage has to be number 1.  My biggest stream spot by weight came from Black River right below Clearwater Dam in the winter, when cold-shocked shad had been coming through the dam for a few weeks--the thing was about 19 inches long but as fat as it was long--probably weighed close to 5 pounds.  I'd put the lower Meramec a bit over middle Big River, and add in the lower half the Bourbeuse in a tie with Big River.

I know there were quite a few 3-4# spots showing up in the Osage last year. Even heard of a few over 4 that were caught.
