Lisek's Table Rock Fishing Report, March 28

Table Rock Lake located here in Branson, Missouri is still producing nice fish.  Up in the Shell Knob and Kings River areas the bite is really good on mega bass and spro McStick jerk baits.  From Baxter to the dam, there are several patterns producing.  First, the Alabama rig is a top producer when rigged with any kind of white swim bait or grub.  Bluff ends, and 45 degree rock banks have been key.  Second, as the wind gets up spro mcstick jerk baits in various colors have been key.  Main lake and some secondary points with timber have been prime locations for us.  There is starting to be a wiggle wart bite on rock transitions.  Crawdad patterns fished in 6 to 10 feet of water has been best.  Also there is starting to be a decent bite swimming and scratching the bottom in 8 to 15 feet of water with a chompers 4” and 5” milky white grub.  Gravel points have been key for this technique.


The crappie fishing has turned on again. We are catching these tasty morsels on flats and around timber up in the long creek and cricket creek areas as well as in the upper James River as well.  White/chart 1/16 oz crappie jigs and blue ice and pearl swimming minnows have been the go to bait.  There is also some nice crappie being caught in the Baxter area of the lake off of boat docks as well using jigs tipped with minnows.


For the trip of a lifetime on Table Rock Lake, come take a trip with us at Branson Guided Fishing Trips in Branson, Missouri. CATCH FISH GUARANTEED!

Where is the best places to catch crappie in the Kings? Mouth of Kings or way up in the Kings? What brand of swimming minnows? I keep hearing a lot about these swimming minnows, thx

Use the 3" swimming minnows on 1/16th, 3/32nd oz heads or heavier if the wind is blowing harder. Got them from Phil's place (Lilly's Landing). Cricket Creek Marina also sells them at a fair price (got 100ct of smoke minnows for $11 bucks I think?) and they should be able to steer you in the right direction on the crappie bite.
