Branson

Fishing guides continue to chase surfacing fish for the first couple of hours every day. Spooks, Sammies and pop-r’s continue to be the baits of choice, watch for fish chasing shad and make cast in front of them. As the sun rises fish will settle down into deep trees and under boat docks; drop shot rigged UV worms, Chompers drop shot worms and ROBO worms have been the best offerings for those holding in deep trees, while dock fish can be caught with Jewel Pro spider jigs and craw combos. 

 

Kimberling City

Great topwater bite in the mid lake just like Branson, fishing guides will chase fish holding close to deep water and throw a variety of topwater baits. Drop shot rigs are effective as the sun rises look for fish to be holding in and around deep trees Jewel ½ and 5/8 oz. football jigs have been working as well, green pumpkin candy and PB&J have been the best colors matched with a a green pumpkin J-Tail trailer. Look for fish to be 12’ – 20’ deep on pea gravel points.       

James  

The James is dominated by a strong shallow bite, big worms, Jewel jigs and shallow running crankbaits have all been very effective less than 10’ deep. Look for brush or other wood cover and make multiple cast from different angles. Branson fishing guides are also doing well with Jewel football jigs and Carolina rigged brush hogs in the James. Gravel roll off points on the main lake are holding both numbers and quality.                        

White River
 
The best topwater action on the lake is on the White River; from Campbell point to Big M fish can be found surfacing early in the day and they will stay up for as much as two hours around wood cover on points. Sammies, spooks and Pop-R’s are all effective. Branson fishing guides are also targeting fish with deep crankbaits on channel swing banks around Big M, look for points on the end of channel swings that drop into deep water. Carolina rigged brush hogs and Jewel football jigs are also effective on the White; gravel and mixed gravel and rock points have been the best locations.
