    Running right around 75 here in the Kansas City area. Two evenings I've been out and hardly a bite to speak of either time. But I'm also trying to figure out some new spots to fish, so it's not surprising that I'm not getting bites. Very few fish seen on the graph as well.

    I had 69 degrees at New Haven today. Fished all afternoon and evening until after midnight. Caught two fish, both channels, one dink and an 11 pounder. Best channel I've ever got.

    Marty did you notice any baitfish changes?
    I didnt see any ball of bait indicating predation-havent seen good bait ball last sever times out and had lousy fishing.
    Did notice stacks of bait in OSB upper ends in channel center.


    All fish graphed lately were tight to bottom structure-close to channel swings where it appeared bait would come rolling by but couldnt get to bite.

    I honestly don't recall *ever* seeing balls of bait on the Missouri, other than in slack water behind dykes, up in creeks, etc.

    I can't imagine bait would spend any more time out in the current of the river than absolutely necessary, but remember I'm pretty new to the river. It makes sense that a ball of bait out in the channel would indicate feeding blue cats nearby, but I've certainly never seen anything like that.

    The only place I've graphed any fish lately at all has been in the holes behind wing dykes - lots of suspended fish (carp, I'm almost sure) and some tight to the bottom in the deep part of the hole. Occasionally I'll see a fish or two near the bank in the main channel, almost always where you have a lot of up-and-down current breaks.

    I look for large humps or any current break where bait rest and predation going on where they buch together. Thats what keeps me from running too high a sensitivity as I dont see if screens too pepered on my B/W screen.

    If I had color, then I'd be on high sensitivity and be watching for dense color shade of yellow or whatever (so I hear).
