Memorial Day Weekend Fishing Table Rock Lake

We at Shotem and Caughtem are doing a little self indulgence by doing a fishing report for Table Rock Lake since that happens to be the spot we will be heading to this weekend.  The bass fishing is one of the best in Missouri at Table Rock lake and we can't wait to get our lines wet for the first time this season.  Water levels have risen to just above normal levels and we hope this has woken up the predators. 

Reports say that the Shad have begun to spawn in the graveled areas off points and along shallower coves.  Top water baits have been doing well in the lighter colors around depths of 5-20 feet.  Weather looks to be hit and miss with scattered thunder storms all weekend and highs in the mid to upper 70's.  The lake as of this past week has been relatively clear making the lighter color baits more noticeable and seem to be the preferred color baits.  

St. James River trout will be enjoying the cooler lake temperatures which seem to be in the high 60's.  As always we recommend a small hook and some Jolly Green Giant canned corn as bait.  Always seems to work.  

If you are headed out this weekend to any Lake we hope to see your Lake or River Monster photos in the Caughtem gallery and share what is working for you.  As always leave comments in the section below.
