Last Fish of The Year- Big M 12/31

Posted by Phil Lilley on December 31st, 2016


Happy New Year.  Since Quillback is on the IR I didn’t want his spot to get too cold while he is out.  Sadly- my report will not be as thorough as his usually are. Hit Big M this AM:  on the water at 7:15, off at 11.  Water temp never above 49 or below 47.  read more…

Kimberling City 12/30 Report

Posted by Phil Lilley on December 31st, 2016


Got to the lake mid-day today, and got out for a few hours this afternoon.  Wind was blowing a little hard for my liking, but got on some banks that were blown and caught 3 fish.  All LM, in less than 5 feet of water on prototypical crankbait banks.  Best is pictured below, 4.5lbs, 21″ long.  Best fish I’ve had on this lake in a while.  Other two were about 3lbs and 2lbs.  Missouri Craw wart (post-rap) did all the damage.  Wish I’d gotten on the water earlier……

Should get out all day tomorrow, and hopefully the wind hangs around, but dies down a little.  Was hard to hold the boat this afternoon.
