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 10/17/2017

Lake level is 705.89.   Water temp low 70s in the Osage and Pomme. The Grand is still stained along with the rest of the lake as I believe it has turned over.  I saw lots of floating algae and other debris floating yesterday with large patches of bubbles….you can say fall has arrived on Truman

 The brush piles in 15 to 18 feet of water are still holding some crappie.  Main Lake flats are holding some very nice crappie as well as  aMain lake bluffs 18 to 22 feet of water seems to be just right. With the bright sunshine the crappie seem to be right in the brush piles.  I fished the main lake bluffs yesterday with jigs just off the bottom in 20 feet of water and had several nice 11 inch crappie. They are really feeding and the bite yesterday was anything but lite.

With the dam off for repairs the Hybrids have really scattered.  I have found them on the shallow humps, the windy points and the backs of creeks.  Both whites and hybrids should be feeding at these locations.  Jigging spoons in all sizes as well as rooster tails, single spins and Pop Rs are taking good size hybrids.

That’s it for October 17, 2017 fishing  report…enjoy the lake and help the other guy when you can.
