Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 12/20/2011

Table Rock Lake level is 915.45 and slowly rising. The water tempurature is 53 degrees. I'm still concentrating on the deep fish. I'm finding the fish 40 feet deep in 50 to 70 feet of water. A good trick is to watch out for the loons and sea gulls. If you see the birds working a certain area you need to go check it out. The loons are diving and bringing schools of shad up and the sea gulls will dive down and feed on the shad. More times then not there will be schools of Bass working underneath those schools of shad. On our trip yesterday we caught around 40-50 fish with around 20 of them being keepers up to 3 1/2 pounds. We were using jigging spoons and fishing the tops of the deep schools of shad . Often times the fish will suspend above the shad in 30 feet of water. I think they are taking a break from feeding but these fish are catchable. One trick is to have one person drop a jigging spoon through them and have a the other person drop a grub on a 1/4 oz head down to them. The spoon gets them fired up and if they dont hit the spoon they cant resist the slow falling grub.

Till next time Good Fishin'
