      Current water temp was 77-78 degrees at the 2 - 4mm of the main channel.

      Try Football head, Shaky Head with either a green pumpkin senko or a red shad 10 in power worm (with about 2 in off of head) work on bottom in between 2-8 foot of ...more water near deep water. Preferably a medium size flat near deep water. I have had this work the best from the dam to the 6mm and up the Gravois. Caught one 3lb and one 5 lb on Sunday 09/27 in about 3 hrs.

      Smoke color grubs or senkos around docks work well.

      would it be better to go up above the niangua arms or stay back in the glaize or gravois arm?

      Use lures that imitate shad that is what everything is feeding on. if you can find a school of feeding fishing throw your bait on the edges of the school of shad ...more that's where they will be.

      I stayed recently for a week and was in the downing branch cove. I caught several lmb in the 2-3 lbs range and one was 6-7. Mostly in coves where the water transitioned ...more from shallow to deep (8-10 ft). Some were on shad colored crankbaits, some on sexy shad spinnerbaits. I caught the big one under a dock on a grn/brn jig. Had a great week hope you do the same.
      Also caught a lot of spotted bass. They were biting whatever was moving.
      Good luck.

      ok thanks! what do you think the water temp will be in 3-4 weeks? will the shad be starting to move back out or still be back in these coves?

      We caught 9 today. Only three keepers. Fish in the coves where the wind is blowing in and you can see the shad. Find a point in one of these coves. Texas rigged ...more creature baits were working too. Or something on a shakey head jig.
