Tri-County Bass Club tourney; Table Rock Mill Creek, March 2018.
Fished the Club Tournament at Mill Creek Saturday March 24th. Wind gusts to 30 mph with brief periods of sun but mostly cloudy all day! Caught 11 fish total, 3 keepers, for 6.40 pounds good enough for 6th out of 23 members who fished! No big fish were there tho.
The smallies are starting to push up onto beds and starting to become more catchable!
We caught them pretty good today, starting to pick up little males that are moving up onto beds along with a few roaming females.
I even got to play around with a big swimbait on a bed fish to see how it’d react and man, it was a blast! Wait for days 4 and 5 because that’s when we really start whacking them!
Pursue your passion folks!

Been so hot in southwest Missouri that the fishing has been a little slow during the 100+ heat index days we’ve had. So, what’s an avid bass fisherman to do??
Go Fishing; Just go At Night.
We went to Cape Fair area, on the James River arm of Table Rock lake. It’s closest to my home in Springfield. After getting some rigs set up with dark color jibs, buzzbait and spinnerbaits (all blk/blue or blk/red), I set out for the 45 minute drive about 6:00 pm. There had been rain and cloudiness the day before (Thursday, 7-28), so the forecast was about 10 degrees cooler. Got there, and just went to the shaded bank, across from the south ramp. Since it was 7pm, and with a couple hours to fish before ‘full dark’, I started out by throwing a Norman, Middle N crankbait in sexy shad. (See all the links to the equipment and lures used).
As in my rush, I’d left my front Garmin sonar at home, I first cruised from the west end to the east end of a small bluff bank before I threw my first cast. Toward the east end, the bluff bank flattened out, and when I went over some shad balls on the east end, that’s where I started to fish.
Caught 7 or 8 fish in the first 45-50 minutes, with 1 keeper (15.5″ largemouth) and 2 plus 14″, and 3-4-5 less than 13″).
If you’ll notice, the bugs were buzzing around my camera, but, they kinda disappeared by about 8:30 and the temps had dropped to around 80 degrees before sunset. Water temperature was in the upper 80’s to 90 degrees when I got there.
So, if you’re board, and tired of frying in the 90+ sweltering heat and humidity, do what I did, fish in the late afternoon, into the evening. It was quite pleasant, and I had a great time catching bass!
Thanks to #Rapala, #Storm, #VMC, #Keitech, #Sufix and #Terminator for their support!
Payton and John identify the key differences between the largemouth and spotted bass. They are both a member of the black bass family and can be very easy to confuse. Hopefully this video clears up the confusion.

Had a couple late afternoon hours on Table Rock fishing the James River end (North) out of Cape Fair so I headed to the closest ramp on Table Rock lake at Cape Fair, Missouri
Started off overcast at 330 when I took off but turned sunny and clear. Decided to fish bluff end cuts with jigs n crankbaits.
Water temp was 78-79, clarity to 5+ feet and light breeze out of the NE. Watch what I caught along the bluff point end in 2-4′ of water!!

I had the oppurtunity to get out on Brookville lake, a lake I have been wanting to fishing for a very long time. I keep seeing Chris Bulaw do videos there and seeing the small mouth and I was pretty shocked. Well I got a taste for them. Of course I had my Shimano Curado and Duckett Rods and working KVD’s Crankbaits. Fun Day

Hi, my name is Randy Yancey! I’m a lot of things, I’m a father of 3 a grampa of 3, soon to be 4, a bass fishing fool for over 50 years, and a tournament bass fisherman! As a long time club and tournament bass fisherman, many of you know that some trips you catch a lot of fish but not many bigger ones. And, sometimes you catch just a few fish and they’re are all pretty good sized, just not enough of them. Then there are the days you catch a good amount of both! Saturday, October 13th was one of those days the fish bit good, but out of a dozen or more, only 4 keepers and nothing bigger than a couple pounds. This was day 1 of the Tri County Bass Clubs season championship out of Nemo park at Pomme de Terre lake! Lots of the guys had zero keepers, and my limit of 4 ended up being the fifth heaviest bag of 17-18 fisherman who took off at 7 am! From 7 until 10, I had all 4 keepers in the boat and had lost the biggest fish of the day probably, when it hung my crankbait on a stickup. I caught almost all my fish on one of two of my 13fishing reels and all were caught on a Rapala DT6 crankbait, in either ‘mule’ color or ‘chart/green’ back color. Most were caught between docks, rather shallow in ‘one’ cove north of Nemo bridge!
