Since 1985. I have been fishing the waters of Truman Lake, the home of some of the largest hybrids  around. Crappie and White Bass inhabit the lake in large numbers.  It would be my pleasure to take you on a fun filled day of fishing, or a half-day if you prefer.

I provide a 2011 Nitro 20-ft. boat with a Mercury 200-hp Optimax XS for your safety and ability to search the lake from one end to the other in a timely fashion. The boat is equipped with a two Lowrance Sonars/GPS to assist in finding the fish. I will also provide fishing tackle.

Bob’s Fishing Report

Fishing Report as of 02/12/2018


Lake level is 705.57.  Water temp low 30s in the Osage and Pomme. The lake is Froze at this time.

Not any changes in the crappie report as the crappie are still on the main lake bluffs 20 to 25 feet of water seems to be just right.  It doesn’t seem to matter what color jigs…I have used every color of SWARMJIGS I have and they bite every one. Just get in their face and they will eat it…..  Going to be  good winter crappie season…..Seems like the bite is better in the early morning but I’ve caught them all day long.  …Shad are gathering right on the bottom and the crappie are just full of them.  The colder it gets the tighter the shad will band and the crappie will be moving with the shad…Fish the upper foot or so of the shad.  The bite may be light, so be watching your line for the least sign.  The bare bluffs still continue to be the best spot as the shad are concentrated here at the present time.  Won’t be long until they will be in the timber along those steeper bluffs.

That’s it for February 12, 2018 fishing  report…Stay warm and help the other guy when you can.
