Fished the Shell Knob area today (western end of the lake). Sunny with little to no wind. Water temperature started around 46 degrees and was 48 by the end of the day. Fished around the bluff walls and bluff ends over submerged timber. Had two fish - a 3 lb spotted bass and a rainbow trout (BIG SURPRISE). First rainbow trout I've ever caught on Table Rock Lake. There are very few trout in Table Rock - most are caught in Taneycomo. Caught fish on a Jewel Gem Spin and a Jewel Gem Shad paired with a Keitech Swing Impact Fat swimbait. Bites were very subtle and I had to work hard for them. Hoping the wind will help the fishing tomorrow. Stay tuned!
