by WHARFRAT from OAF forum.  Yesterday was the day to be out there. Wasn’t able to go out until about 2:30, but in just a short period of time, I probably caught a couple of limits. It was a C&R day, so all fish are back home and safe in their beds.  I’m amazed at how quickly the water temps have plummeted. Two weeks ago they were 78-80 degrees, now I’m not finding anything higher than 63.
Most of the nice ones were blacks between 10.5 and 12″. I found them on main lake docs on the Big Niangua between the 8 and 10mm.
Shooting a red/chart slab buster or stinger shad in the front third of the dock, I don’t think the jig is falling much more than 3′ before the strike. Caught more shooting next to lifts with galvanized tanks more so than with poly tanks.
Here’s a few pics of the fish. Notice one has a red bloody spot on its side. A couple of days ago I had caught numerous fish with the same sure what’s going on with them.
