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.
Lake level is 714.02 and water temp 39 in the Osage and Grand. The water is stained in the dam area and muddy with debris in the creek arms near Sterett Creek Marina. Due to Missouri River flooding they are not currently running water
Crappie are in their early staging pattern here in the Dam area of the lake. Swarmjigs of various colors are taking lots of limits. The lower part of the lake is finding crappie about 25 ft in 30 foot of water. Most of the crappie have been found in the mouths to half way back of spawning coves. This time of the year, electronics are a must. We have used various colors of Swarmjigs and different color 1/4oz jig heads and doesn’t seem to make much difference. DEPTH is key and holding the rod as still as possible. The spider riggers are using minnows and taking lots of fish in a short period of time. I still like to feel the “thump”, but to each his own as long as you are catching fish.
That’s it for March 18, 2019 fishing report… Help the other guy when you can. I hope that all of you remember your life jacket works better when it is worn. Take an extra set of warm clothes just to be safe…..
