Lake of the Ozarks Bass Well if your not fishing at Lake Of The Ozarks your missing out on some good bass fishing. The lake is in the mid 50's and clear on the lower end and stained in the back of the big creeks. The last week has been warm and them cold but the bass have not changed much. In the next few days I'll say they will be up shallower and biting every thing you throw at them. Fish shallow and us havey line in the brush or chunck rock and pea gravel banks. Some of the bigger fish are still waiting for the weather to leavel off and then they too will get on the beds. Crappie is hot as well. On sunday just before the cold front moved in the big crappie turned on big time. After sunday night it slowed down and the fish moved out over deeper water but didn't go down deep. In one or two days they will be back shallow on the banks. You can throw bobber rigs or just cast to the bank useing jigs. Try deeper until it warms up then move shallow and back in the coves. Colors change by the hour some times so if the bite slows try an other color or liter jig. Don't wait for the perfit day fish just before or in a cold front and you may have the best day of fishing every. Osage river is still up and down daily. Try to be thier as the water is comeing up to get the best fishing or if they stablelies the water for a few days that will get the fish to hold on the logs or rocks. Fish the slower water this time of year and try diffrent baits to get a feil for the bite. Crankbaits and spinnerbaits or jigs should work now. rogues, A rigs and maybe topwater if it gets warmer. Remenber you can't keep the bass on the river until June 1

Fishing off a Marina dock with multiple suspended crappie beds. Dad and I caught our limit between 4:30 pm and 7pm, just before a nasty storm hit Osage Beach around 7:30. We were using minnows and slip bobbers at 3 to 5 feet deep and the action was furious! Caught at least 50 but only kept the keepers. Also tried 10....15....and 20 feet but no bites at these levels. Jigs were not working at all. The next few weeks are going to be excellent!
