My wife and I loaded the kids in the truck and spend the weekend in Hermann, Missouri with our friends, Tim and Michelle Schulte. They were celebrating their youngest daughter’s birthday on Saturday and invited family and friends to help celebrate.

Tim and Michelle live on 50 acres just outside of Hermann, and they have a nice lake behind their house that is stocked with bass, bluegill and catfish. Below are some photos of the event. The weather was fantastic as was the company was even better.

It looks like three years of record spawns due to high water is paying off for Bull Shoals Lake on the Missouri/Arkansas border.

There was a local tournament two weeks ago that launched from Buck Creek near the hwy. 125 ferry. Roughly 35 boats entered the tournament and headed out for a day of fishing. Winter bass fishing can be hit or miss depending on what the weather is doing.

That Saturday afternoon, the fishing gods presented a day worth remembering to those who ventured out in the cold. With a low front stalled over the area and a severe cold front on its way, the bass were eating…and they were eating a ton. Everyone in the tournament caught fish that day…mostly on rogues/jerkbaits.

According to one angler, it did not matter what type of bank you fished, the fish were interested in filling their bellies. The top six places took a check, and if you had less than 20 lbs. you went home with only the fish in your live well. It has been a long time since a 4 lb. fish average was the norm on this lake.

This success can be directly attributed to three years of high water during the spawn. Fisherman could not get to where the fish were bedding, and the lack of pressure has made the fish count on the lake explode.

I am really looking forward to this year’s spring fishing on Bull Shoals.
