Fished today on Truman and caught somewhere around 20 blue cats (plus a couple of channels just for good measure), biggest was just under 10 lbs, most were nice eating size if one were so inclined (I wasn't and returned them all to grow into monsters...) The weather was just about perfect - overcast, low 50's and nearly calm winds. If you're not out fishing on Truman or LOZ, you should be -- I fished 5 different spots today and caught fish at every single one of them, had a fish on the line within just a few minutes of tossing out my bait at almost every hole. I'm fishing in the old river channels, in about 50 feet of water - doesn't matter exactly where. Just drive around watching the sonar and find places where the bottom 15 or 20 feet of the water column is solid with fish, then anchor, beach or tie up to a tree and fish that spot. Use big hunks of bait, big circle hooks, 2 or 3 oz of weight and tight-line using a medium-heavy rod and you're almost guaranteed to have success. The challenge is in finding shad - they're all deep, just like the fish. So look for them in 30 to 40 ft of water and get a big, fast-sinking throw net with a long lead line (I use a 9 ft radius net with 5/8" mesh - sinks like a rock but I need more line so it can go deeper). You have to learn to recognize bait on the sonar and then be able to position the boat before you throw and keep the boat in position after the throw so that you're right over the net as it sinks -- throwing blind works in the summer time, but if you do it now, it'll do nothing but wear you out and frustrate your efforts. I spent just over 2 hours today looking for bait, finally hit the jackpot and got about 50 in one throw so I was off fishing. The day ended on a very sour note that I won't go into here. Just suffice it to say that my boat now has some seriously bent alumium and I'm lucky to be here typing this... oooh: Get out and fish if you have the chance!
