Since there is absolutely nothing to do because of all of the new guidelines and rules that are in place right now, I thought that I would try to go out and do some fishing this week. This will be the first time out for me this year and I'm not sure where the fish will be. I thought I would try the Gravois arm  starting at the upper end. I hope that you will all follow the rules set by the political bosses and give me some social distancing. If you could let me have about 5 miles of the arm at that end that would be great. Unless of course I'm not catching anything and then I would ask you to give me more social distancing at the lower end of the arm. I'm sure if everyone would pitch in, follow the rules and let me fish the areas by myself with no one else around I should hopefully be able to scratch up a limit even with my basic knowledge and skill. Thank you and God Bless.

Seriously though, I hope that you are all in good health and that you stay that way.

My work buddy is working from home down at his lake house on the upper end of Gravois.  His daughter caught a small bass and catfish yesterday on night crawlers.

Man the bass fishing is rough right now. Has been since November from what I hear. I couldn't really figure them out last week while I was social distancing/working from home at the lake so I chased these guys around instead! Shooting Docks was by far the most productive way to catch em. My boys even braved some cold windy weather to hang out with their old man!

Noticed a couple strange things on the water today. The first is I caught about 20 whites/hybrids/stripers or mutts that were about 5 to 8 inches.  Several sure had the look of pure striper. Almost like they dumped a truckload in my area. Then, after dark I was moving the boat to a covered dock and there were a couple of huge blowups like schools of whites chasing shad, It was dark so I couldn't really see what was happening but it sounded like all heck and each lasted a couple of minutes. I've never seen that in the spring before. I was lucky enough to be able to clean a nice 20" walleye and 2 12"+ crappie.

They do stock them in your neck of the woods...the ruckus sure sounds like hybrids to me.  I have run into them busting up top early in the year on Beaver and it can be a real hoot, but I usually have trouble finding them on the lower end of LOZ in spring but I imagine many are up the river arms false spawning.  I will keep trying.
