I'm headed down to Table Rock this weekend. Going to spend a lot of time on the lake fishing. Mostly Kimberling City, but might make some runs to Indian Point and Cape Fair (and can stop anywhere in between.)

Just wondering if there were any leads to the best part of the lake and best baits to fish. We usally work PBJ Football jigs, wiggle warts, grubs, spooks, etc...

Any info helps.

I would recommend fishing around KC to Baxter up some creek arms or long deep pockets with topwaters early unless there are clouds you can use topwaters all day. Throw jigs and cranks around big chunck rock/transition areas with some isolated timber is a bonus.

Thanks for the info...

We usally come down a couple times in the spring and then again in the fall. We really spend most of our time in Fisher, West Fisher, Schooner, Mill, and Cow Creeks.

Wasn't sure what pattern the bass are in right now. I was hoping these cooler night temps would bring them in shallow, but I guess thats a ways off. Its just nice to get some feedback...

We have had some luck in that area over the last 2 years. Can;t wait to get beack down there...

the way the weekend weather looks with the front coming through i would recomend that good ole spinnerbait, might not catch you any giant fish quite yet but you could have a lot of fun with the "just keepers" and probably several short fish. i have not been as far down as kc but i do know that four out of the top six in the homer sloan derby this past weekend caught their 12 and 13 pound limits on a spinnerbait and most of us were in the baxter area. cant say about anybody else but my fish came from the transition banks from big rock to small rock in both the pockets and on the points. i chucked a white spinnerbait ALL DAY LONG and came up with 12.25 lb for my efforts

up mostly but i did try some slow rolling through some timber along with keeping it up but not much interst there yet, most fish would just crush the second i started my retrieve and i was layin that bait right up on the bank heck i had one that actually surfaced to get the bait as it hit the water like i was throwin him a pass or something it was pretty good day really for me i just couldnt get that quality bite i had nine keepers and several shorts in all

We are coming down the 25th - staying at Big Cedar. Been down the last two years in early October, hoping that coming a little later will help the bite. We would really like to find some shallow fish. That spinnerbait bite sounds like fun.

JBrant, I would consider fishing from Big Cedar all the way towards as far up Long Creek you are familiar with. The Spinnerbait bite should be really getting good in that area of the lake, if that doesn't work throw a wart and jig and you will catch them. The A-rig bite will be starting to get good as well as long as the water temp keeps going down.
