Lake level is 705.21 with water temp in the lower 50’s in the lower part of the lake. The mid lake area is pretty clear.
I took most of November off to do boat maintenance. Getting parts like thermostats is a chore but Truman Lake Marine got everything ready and we pulled the boat and put new sparkplugs, lower unit maintenance, water pump, oil change, etc etc. Replaced fishing seats and replaced two batteries. Now we are ready for winter fishing.
This past week Mike Edwards was here for the week, and I think he got his limit all but Thanksgiving day. Thursday was a cold very windy day in the mid-lake area, but still had an enjoyable day catching 8 63/64th inch crappie, There are still some nice white bass mixed in with the crappie in the 20-22 foot deep water. We fish with jigs all week right on the bottom for the larger fish. The bite was hard most of the time as these fish are feeding in the shad holding deep. There are also shad on top and the pelicans and seagulls are really eating well.
One nice thing about not fishing this month, was I got to miss the high winds that hit the mid-lake area. Hopefully the high winds will be fewer..
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and are avoiding the latest variant. Open air is the best place to be…
That’s about it for November 28 2021. Help the other guy when you can and remember your life jacket works best when it’s worn. Bob
