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 12/01/2018



Lake level is 705.87 and water temp 45 in the Osage and Grand. The current water clarity is stained in the Osage, but fairly clear everywhere else.


With the cold weather moving in, the late fall pattern of scattered crappie is going on and the movement to winter area is well underway here in the mid part of the lake.  Swarmjigs of various colors are taking lots of limits.  The lower part of the lake is finding crappie about 16-26 ft just off the bottom.  The bite has been more noticeable as the crappie are full of shad and are still feeding up for winter.  We have used various colors of Sawrmjigs and different color 1/4oz jig heads and doesn’t seem to make much difference.  DEPTH is key.  Look on the drop edges of the creeks and the bare bank bluffs in 16-27 feet of water fishing about 6 inches to a foot off the bottom to start….move slowly….

That’s it for December 1, 2018 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.
