Lilley's Lake Taneycomo Fishing Report, April 1


Recommended Posts

Some other solid fish that we caught yesterday.  We hammered them pretty good despite the bright sun and some nasty wind.  I missed more fish and they live to bite when it's gusting lol.   Quality over quantity I'd imagine to some, but 60 or so fish in 5 hours or so was good for us guys who are usually in the water not on it.  I can't imagine what would of been if we'd have had overcast and zero wind.  

@BrandonSTL got it done and had biggest fish which was the bow on one cast, and a nice football brownie to boot.  Be might have some more pics.

Duane said he and his client had a fantastic day today with over 50 fish to  the boat in the Restricted zone. 
 

We made 3 passes and caught 3 per pass on a 1/16 oz maribou on the bottom and a size 10 Shad fly on the top. Shad fly was suspended at 6’ under the indicator and the weighted jig at 8’. Had fish follow it to the boat multiple times on the recast.  Shad fly caught 8 of the 9 fish.

Moved down past Lilleys and caught them great on a crawler for the first time it seems like in several months.  Not stockers these were some dandy bows. 
 

Things are for sure improving

This jig bite isn't the easiest.  The reason for the light jig is to try to "float" it across the bottom.  Too deep and it grabs moss.  They are chasing, like Bill said.  My son Caleb had some luck working it alittle faster.

You really had to be on top your jig game for sure.  Very subtle bite, and I missed a ton of fish due to wind, but they also were doing allot of nipping.

Sensitive rods def help, but as Blake said we spent a lot of time watching our lines yesterday.  I bet we'd have easily doubled our numbers without the wind and some clouds for a bit. Still a fantastic day of fishing though.
