Brad,

The way this winter has been, you should feel right at home. We primarily fish suspending jerk baits and 5/16-ounce finesse jigs like the Eakins Jig that time of year. Look for bluff ends and channel swings on both the main lake and river arms. The fish MAY start thinking about moving toward spawning areas but they'll still be staging. Hope this helps.

Champ is right-on, as usual!

So much depends on what part of the lake you are planning on fishing. Some years the river fish will turn on great by than. You will have to watch the posts as your trip gets closer. Do you know where you will stay if you come down. At this time of the year, you don't have to worry about reservations. If possible, I would stay close to the action and save lots of gas.

is there a chance of the lake being iced over? and i would be fishing the BFL event on the 19th so i think its ran out of Kimberling City?

I don't think there's a chance of the lake freezing over totally. But the ramp conditions are a diffrent story. Sounds like right now it's impossible to get in down there. With more snow in the forcast we better get a good melt between now and then. The tournament is out of Kimberling Inn a.k.a Ahoy's.

All three species will respond to the right presentation. Add to the above - a very slow rolled spinner bait moving only fast enough to spin the blade with pause to allow to drop.

Don't forget sloooowly swam grubs on 1/8 - 1/4-ounce jig heads. I like the 5" Kalins in the Pearl or Smoke colors (for mid-depth presntations) or one of the Pumkin or Watermelon colors for swimming right on the bottom. This works really well near deep docks where you see schools of baitfish on your electronics, and is super for big Smallmouths in the Dam area.
