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 722.89 and falling as they are running water. The water temp 79 in the Osage and Grand. The water is clear.
Fishing has begun to get better as the water recedes with some nice crappie being taken in 12 to 18 feet of water 6 to 12 feet deep in the flooded bushes on minnows; willows, hedges and cedars are best, and they seem to be bunched up in some areas.
Whites and hybrids have started to feed on new hatch on the surface early and late in the day. This should get better as the water continues to fall. Sassy Shad and 1/2oz jigging spoons are making them mad enough to bite. Seems like right now it is not a feeding buy, but a reaction bite. Green Chartreuse and also white sassy shad have seemed to the the choice.
That’s it for August 1,. 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.
