View Full Version : Lake of the Ozarks

Well I couldn't resist the temptation any longer. Hit the Lake of the Ozarks yesterday. Air temp 90, water temp 90. Big boats, about 90, lol. Waves about 2 feet. Rough, and exciting at the same time. Watching my partner holding on to his kidneys, priceless!! Anyway, it didn't seem to matter what we threw at them, as long as it was in the shade. No big ones, but quite a few 2lbers. Fun day to enjoy out, even with the big cruisers. Everybody seem to have their heads on today. Find a big quiet cove and fish it, then battle to the next cove. At least I know my ethanol is mixed up well. One more month guys, then let the party begin.

We put in at Larry Gale, went down the Little Niangua till it got shallow. It was real muddy down there. We then came up to Little Island, and started catching them. We fished areas from there all the way up to 5 bridge (Greenview). Like I said earlier, shade was the only factor that made a difference. We used worms, cranks, jigs, spinner baits, and top water; black seemed to work the best, but white also worked. Our biggest one came from the cove to the right, by Gale at the back, by the road with 3 culverts. It is about 1.4 ft deep, but has lots of shade. That's the only secret I'm going to give, lol. We had something huge on at Little Island, but broke the line, so don't know what it was. Caught some crappie in about 8ft around brush and shade. Didn't try them very hard, but they are biting. Good luck and wear a jock strap, lol.

Ah, it was slow but a beauty of a night. Was in the Glaise arm by PB2. Only saw one other boat. Caught about 16 or so shorts and 2 keepers on plastics and once the sun came up spinner baits. Great time.
