Little Fishing Report By Jack's Guide Service

Water temperatures are starting to drop with the cool nights lately. Water temps were around the 93 degree range a little while ago, but now they are down to 83 and slowly falling. By Christmas water temperatures will be around 55. Bass fishing has picked back up recently after a pretty rough stretch. I'm basically fishing early fall patterns right now. Shad and baitfish are going to be extremely important for the next month. Shallow flats with bait and some isolated cover will be my first choice. Docks with wind and bait nearby will be my second pattern choice. Topwaters, cranks, swimbaits, jerkbaits (hard or soft). Think fast, fast, slow, fast, then kill it almost like a jerkbait retrieve but will all the baits. Really concentrate on triggering the strikes.

The crappie are really easy right now. (On the lower end of the lake at least) They are grouped up in large schools. Deep docks, or deep structure with help from your electronics. Not 15 inch crappie, but lots and lots of keepers. Catfish are still biting pretty good and unfortunately I'm getting addicted to jugging. I just can't deny the results and effectiveness of the jugs. I like to rod-n-reel fish but the jugs offer such quick action and so many big fish. A couple days ago me and a client easily caught another beautiful stringer of big blues.

Bite picked up a little more yesterday - surface water temp was actually below 80 for awhile. Went about about 11am for an hour and a half - caught 9 with 3 keepers on black and blue chatterbait around the docks - 6 to 10 feet.

LW, it sounds good! The big boats will hopefully slow down a little and give us a chance to fish some. I may be headin down this weekend on Saturday and I'll let you know if I get any fishing in. a buddy of mine caught some keepers near the back of the Gravois, so maybe that shallower bite is picking up, he caught them on jign'pig.

Yep, bass have been back on for a couple weeks now... caught one that was so big that at first I'd thought I snagged a log, 4 feet of water.

This is my signature, there are many like it, but this one is mine. http://urlmd.com
