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 10/31/2018

Lake level is 707.78 and water temp 61 in the Osage and Grand. The current water clarity is stained almost everywhere.

The Hybrids and Whites can now be found both on the windy banks and some of the shallow humps as the fall feed gets underway.  Last week I caught limits of whites and hybrids on the shallow humps about 16 feet.  A Lot of action can be found in the Dam area while generation is going on.  Jigging spoons 3/4oz and sassy shad are the baits of choice.

Crappie are still good both on the brush piles and trees. 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.  Swarmjigs of various colors are taking lots of limits as the minnows start tapering off and the crappie go deeper.  The lower part of the lake is finding crappie about 16-20 ft just off the bottom.  The bite is soft so a sensitive rod is a must at this time.

That’s it for October 31,2018 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.
