Well Fall is in full swing now and Table
Rock Lake is cooling very fast. Main Lake temps are in the low 70's and
falling. Bass are scattered all over the lake with river areas having the
stronger bite. Main Lake is a day to day basis, One day you have a 6.5 small
mouth then the next day you struggle to find a few bites. Depth is starting
to play a key role in finding these guys. Small Mouth seem to be up shallow
early in the mornings chasing shad and crawfish. 3 to 12 foot range seems to
be the best early then as the day moves on fish seem to be moving down to
around 30 feet on the bottom on main lake primary and secondary points with
ledges or breaks on them. Next pattern I found was on some of the docks on
the deeper banks, fish seemed to be in two places, First on the front
walkways in the shade and then second on the shaded side but on the outside
corners of the docks. Shade was the key on this pattern. Lets talk about the
baits we used.
dragged on the bottom in the 8 to 20 foot range will get the bite, but also
was catching some fish swimming the jig back to the boat as well so try both
for the bite. Also
targeting docks on super sunny weeks and flipping the docks stalls in deeper
waters, bite is on the fall. Size of the jigs change from 1/2 to 3/4 ounce
jigs in the basic Table Rock Colors should work great. PB&J, Green Pumpkin,
Missouri Craw. Trailers are the basic craw looking like the
Zoom speed craw in my
favorite color watermelon cotton candy or a 4" twin tailed grub by Chompers
in the same Watermelon Cotton Candy!
Shakey Head Jigs in the 1/8
to 3/8 ounce range. Rigging these with a Zoom 7" Trick Worm in Watermelon
Cotton Candy or Green Pumpkin. Fishing these in the same areas as the jig
bite. Slow dragging and flipping around docks worked best.
Tubes in the same weight
range are working but seems to be a day to day basis. Green Pumpkin 4"
Chomper tubes are working for me. Just have to play with colors and sizes
down to a 3" tube as well.
Spinnerbaits was also
picking up a few nice small mouth early. Double willow 3/8 War Eagle in
Mouse color was getting hammered, Cole Slaw colors will get a bite as well..
Spoon's in all white from
1/2 to 3/4 ounce are working well in the right docks. I'm flipping and
pitching these spoons in the open docks stall with deep water and cables.
Allowing the spoon to free fall down using the reel as a brake and to feel
the tap. Bite was always on the fall even had a few that were swim off's. My
favorite way to fish in the fall.
Good Fishing Everyone..
Fishing (Lower River Landing Area)
fishing is still strong even with all of the current. Fishing is active just have to find special spots, fished all weekend with really good
days in the slack waters of Lake Taneycomo.. Have to stay out of current or
find a good eddie and fish the backside of it..
still the ticket colors change everyday.. 4 Hours 15 to 25 fish normal.
Good Fishing Everyone
