Fishing Report as of 0/29/2019
Lake level is 709.26 . The water temp 75 in the Osage and Grand. The water is clear to stained
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 flats on hardwoods on minnows.
Whites are everywhere and are 10-12 inches with larger fish mixed in, seems like yu have to just weed through them like crappie to get the bigger fish. Jigs and spoons are the bait of choiVery little action so far on hybrids so far but a few on crank bait while trolling.
Due to old age (1683 hours) my Mercury 200 died and couldn’t be fixed with out a total rebuild. I purchased a new Suzuki 250 4 stroke from Truman Lake Marine, the new Suzuki Dealer here in Warsaw and she is broke in and running like a racehorse.
Crappie are feeding just about everywhere, brush, trees, flats and on the bluffs. Minnows and jigs of all colors are taking limits. We have had good spawns the last several years as the 9 inch fish are really plentiful. Now the 10-11 inch fish are becoming more common than in the past.
That’s it for September 29. 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.
