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

Kon really hung up!


 Fishing Report as of 09/11/2018



Lake level is 708.10 and water temp 77 in the Osage and Grand. The current water clarity is clear almost everywhere.

The hybrids have been feeding on shad just at dark.  I had checked all the usual places, but they seem to be suspending over deep river channels about 12-18 feet deep.  Live shad seem to be the real ticket here, but I still catch them on 3/4oz jigs with 4 inch sassy shad and large spoons. There have been spotted reports of early morning surface action by whites, but this seems to be only on cloudy mornings.

Crappie are still good both on the brush piles and trees. In the clear water near the dam the fish are down 10 to 15 ft while up the rivers fish are being caught 8 to 10 ft down in 10 to 15 feet of water.

I get a lot of calls for walleye fishing guide and since I don’t guide for walleye and I doubt most of the honest guides will tell you the same thing, I finally found a guy that does nothing but walleye fish and he is really good.  I have referred several people to him and they have said he is tops.  His name is Tony Galant and you can reach him at (816) 365-4351.

That’s it for September 11, 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.  Pleased note the addition of a Memorial Tournament News menu item at the top of my site which hopefully I can keep up with.  If you know of one, please email me the information where I can link up with it…..Thanks
