Branson:Fishing guides are still targeting smallmouth on shallow pea gravel and mixed gravel and rock points throughout Branson. The best bite has been on Jewel Squirrel heads with a Tightlines UV enko in UV green with the tail dipped in chartreuse, most of the fish have been less than ten feet deep early and will move out to 12’ – 18’ deep once the sun comes up.
Kimberling City:Much like in Branson fishing guides are working the shallows with a combination of Jewel Squirrel heads, Pro Spider jigs and UV tubes. Gravel mixed with rock has been the key from 10’ – 18’ deep. Jewel Pro Spider jigs in green pumpkin candy with a UV green jig trailer has been tough to beat, cut about ½ of the tail section off of the jig trailer to make the bait a little more compact and draw more strikes. UV green and UV green red flake tubes have been getting it done as well, rig either on a ¼ oz. head and drag slowly along the bottom.
James River:All of the rain on Tuesday and yet to come later this week has the James River a little dirtier than last week. Darker colors were working well in the stained water especially around shallow wood cover on points. Branson fishing guides have been doing well with Jewel Magnum Casting jigs in 7/16 with either an Okeechobee blue or black and blue skirt. Match both with a black and blue UV jig trailer and work the shady areas of wood cover.
