    Hey guys, I just found this site. I've been jugging/limblining for just over a year now. I am going on a fishing trip to Truman this weekend and have had no time to catch bait. Do any of you know where i can buy some green sunfish/black perch in the Osage Bluff area. I think that the perch stay alive the best for those big flats. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    PS Went fishing at Mark Twain Lake 4/29-5/3. 7 of us caught almost 1000 lbs of catfish on jug lines along the bluffs with green sunfish. Mostly blues with the occasional flathead. Not counting a lot of channel cat.

    You won't find either of those for sale anywhere. Sorry. Goldfish is about all you'll find.

    First off welcome to the BOC Chad. On where to buy green sunfish someone here will be able to help you. Dont rule out fresh shad out of the lake. Hard to beat imo. Shad is pretty easy to catch with a cast net in Drake Harbor or in the dead channel below the dam. Good luck fishing. This site is full of great brothers and sisters willing to help.

    Do any of you ever use Harrison Fisheries in Hurdland, MO? I hear they sell live bait fish of all kinds at a good price. However, I have never used them--I like to catch my bait.

    Here is their website.
