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.
Fishing Report as of 11/26/2017
Lake level is 706.42. Water temp low 50s in the Osage and Pomme. The lake is clearing little by little and crappie fishing has been excellent.
Main lake bluffs 18 to 22 feet of water seems to be just right. I fished the main lake bluffs yesterday with jigs just off the bottom in 20-25 feet of water and had several nice 11 inch crappie. They are really feeding and the bite yesterday was anything but lite. It didn’t seem to matter what color jigs…I used every color of SWARMJIGS I had and they bit every one. Just get in their face and they would eat it….. Going to be good fall and early winter crappie season…..Seems like the bite is better in the early morning but I’ve caught them all day long. Saturday morning Steve Blake and I had trips and were done by noon with limits for everyone in the boat. Seems best spots are on the bare bank bluffs close to a point…Shad are gathering right on the bottom and the crappie are just full of them.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are now ready to shed a few pounds and do some serious crappie fishing. Christmas will be here before you know it so you better get to it while you can..
That’s it for November 26, 2017 fishing report…enjoy the lake and help the other guy when you can.
