Table Rock Lake: While the lake boasts an abundance of bass, crappie, white bass, catfish, and bluegill, Table Rock Lake is acclaimed as one of the best bass fishing lakes in this hemisphere. It\'s reputation for producing hefty stringers of bass laced with lunkers was earned through an unprecedented management program. A 15-inch length limit and creel limit of six fish linked with an abundant food chain in the lake, is the foundation of this fine program. The result is a resurgence of large numbers of largemouth, Kentucky and smallmouth bass of exceptional size available anytime of the year for the professional and novice angler alike.

Water Temperature: 44
Water temp was cool on the main body with little to no action on jerking, spinners, or wiggle warts. Temp was much better up to 50 degrees south on the Arkansas border. Fished coves there and boated two small black bass on a chartreuse spinner. Did some crappie jigging as well but didn\'t catch any.

Table Rock Lake Bass Fishing Report 2/22 Lake Lake Level 907.48 Fishing on Table Rock Lake in Branson Missouri is starting to pick up as the days start to lengthen and the bass start moving to the areas were they will eventually move to to spawn. There are a lot of fish still suspended moving with the bait schools and can be caught on grubs, spoons, drop shots and The A-Rig. Watch for areas of the lake that have gulls and Loons feeding to start your search for these suspended somewhat nomadic fish. Once you find the bait, idle through it looking for the areas or schools of bait that are in tight balls, the schools of bait that are packed tight are the ones that are being chased and fed on. One note is to make sure there are fish present or you are marking fish close to the levels of the tight schools of bait to ensure you are not just fishing the bait that is just being chased by the Loons. Main Lake channel swings adjacent to the flats or main creek or large pockets is holding bass and will for the next 3 months as bass stage and move in and back out thought the spawning process on Table Rock Lake. Look for the sharper breaks especially those with large rocks brush or standing timber. the best baits for fishing these areas are the A-Rig, grubs and jerk baits in shad colors. Note I try and fish the swings that have wind blowing on or across or when they are pulling current at the Table Rock Dam. The other areas we are catching fish are the smaller secondary points inside the creeks and larger main lake pockets that are adjacent to the channels or that have deep water access close by. The best baits have still been the grub, jerk baits and the A-Rig but on these secondary points we have been catching some fish on a jig and craw and a wiggle wart which should be really picking up. Note I also try and fish these areas that are close to were there is bait or birds present. The back of the creeks and the rivers have mucked up some with the rains we had last week and we will start fishing these areas after we get a few more days of sun shine which will rapidly warm these areas with stained water and make the shallow fish more active. Spinner baits the wiggle wart and jigs will be your best baits as the water warms in these areas. This time of the year don\'t be afraid to try different depths, we have caught fish casting to the banks and also casting out and allowing our baits to settle to 60 foot before we start our retrieves! Note while you aren\'t going to catch the numbers of fish that you will in April and May this next month is the your best time to come to Table Rock Lake to catch a trophy bass, while the A-Rig has not turned on yet as it did last year at this time I feel it is about to happen. Note we caught a 10# Largemouth and a 6.5# small mouth bass last year in March on Table Rock!

5/26 Table Rock Lake Level 913.48 Bass fishing on Table Rock lake is still really good, and everything is still working. Lots of the fish are still really shallow for this time of the year and can be caught from the main lake to the back of the creeks. Best baits are a tube, worms, jigs, crank baits and top waters. On cloudy windy days fish shallow and fast and on calm clear days fish slow and deeper (out to 15\') We are catching some nice fish on top waters too. spooks and fins or wake baits. There are a few fish schooling in the bigger creeks and pockets, grubs, top waters and the Table Rock Lake A rig with 3\" chompers grubs will catch them. Lots of deep fish too, 25 to 30 foot in the areas with the clearing water. Football jigs, tubes and drop shot also Jigging spoons.

"Current water temps is still hovering around 46 - 47, but with a few warmer days in the forecast that should hit the magical 52 mark by early next week. Smallmouth and largemouth are being caught on main lake points with slow jerk baits in shallower water and there is a big fish bit with swimming grubs over submerged trees in deeper water. The white bass and crappie should really start to turn on over the next two weeks up in the river arms and major creeks. For more Table Rock Lake Fishing Reports you can check out"

"The bass are now in the coves. they are beginning to mate, but are not willing to eat during the day. any day from now on try to fish the inner coves, toss in a imitation of a crawdad for best results. toss it right into the nest and give it little action and they should hit right away to get it out of their nest. fish and fish now."

"was out yesterday and caught a 18"" female large mouth bass(Kentucky). The mating time is up. The males are left guarding the nest while the male goes and enjoys a meal. still fish the coves. fish in the inner cove for males and any where for the females. use a chartreuse diver that goes that goes four to five feet down, bounce it off the rocks. when you hit a rock let it stop pulling and let it stay for a second before retrieving again. do this with every rock."

Crappie Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Fall Fishing Tip provided by Guide Chatt Martin: One tactic is all you need. Trolling. Get a pink or black colored crankbait that gets down 8-12 feet (I like Bandit 200 and 300 series crankbaits), and put it 80-100 feet behind a boat and drive that boat around in 8-12 feet of water pretty slow. 1.2-1.8 miles per hour seems to be the blessed speed. You will catch crappies, and you'll be surprised how many. This is a great tactic when you don't have a fishfinder.

Table Rock Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
Full Moon fishing can be at its best. The gravitational pull on the earth is at its peak when the moon and sun are rising and setting at opposite times of the day. This combination can generate extraordinary fishing opportunities especially if combined with perfect weather variances. The full moon may have the fish extremely aggressive and actively hunting for food. Try fishing a little faster today and with several different baits and techniques. When fish are more aggressive, it?s always fun to fish a little more aggressive. Watch the peak fishing times and make sure you are on the water during that part of the day to take full advantage of today's solar/lunar peaks. Full moon days can be great fishing. Good luck today!
