Lake Ozark Fishing

Went out tonight around 4 and fished until dark caught several keeper Bass on a Zara *. The fish were holding on outside corners of big boat docks but they had to have deep water under them 35 plus feet. Caught a few chasing shad in the same area. Water temp was 61 to 63 wind was very lite. I wish that I had gone out earlier as we had cloud cover much of the day. Didn't see any whites chasing shad tonight oh well much rather fish for blacks than whites. Last week I was catching lots of whites every evening but not tonight. I talked to a friend that fishes Crappie and he told me that they caught several limits of big Crappie this past weekend off of big docks also.
If anyone is ever in the area give me a call. I usually fish just about ever day that is fit for man or beast.
Water Temp 49.5 today and visibility about 3 to 4 feet. I did actually see some of the crappie hit the bait.
I did catch several bass and one smallie. The smallie was the first one that I have ever caught here at the lake. I have seen them brought into a weigh in but they normally have come from way up the river.
I wish I could go out this morning as the weather is going to change today and I think they would be all turned on. Oh well today we are have the family Christmas and I just might get a few new baits.
Life is good when you live at the lake.
I told someone yesterday that fishing is not all about catching. It is time well spent enjoying all the good things in life. I know catching one is fun too.
My son got back from Canada he said the fishing was a little slower than normal. He caught his biggest Muskie within 20 minutes of fishing at his first stopping spot a 44inch. They caught several a day but the big boys never showed. He said the walleye fishing was great lots of big fish. He said it was a struggle to catch ones small enought to eat. They also caught lots of smallmouths.
Gun Deer Season
Work one or two days.
Forget the work days "Lets Go Fishing"
Things will only get better as the water temp continues to drop.
One of these days I am going to learn how to put pictures on here. I am computer challenged old man old school.
Have a great Thanksgiving!!!!!!
