Eyes around KC

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone.

I have not been out very much yet this year unfortunately but I am going to start here soon hopefully. I have not fished a ton in MO/KS since moving from MN a few years back

I was wondering if anyone info they want to volunteer on good lakes to find eyes around KC in the May and June time frames. I usually fish Smithville with some luck and in recent years have been driving to COffey Countly Lake with great success. The drive to Coffey County is a little long though. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of lakes that would be a little closer time wise.

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Happy fishing,

KCWalleye

KC, I fish Truman quite a bit for crappies, with good success. In fact heading down there tomorrow. You can catch walleyes around kk island. Truman is a real sleeper for eyes. You might also hit Stockton, it has a lot of eyes and it has good crappies, and is a real pretty lake. On the kansas side hit Hillsdale, it has a good population of eyes, and good bass and crappies. In the metro try Longview for eyes. I fish Jacomo in the spring from the bank for eyes at night with some success, try a jerk bait. I moved here from Forest Lake years ago, love the fishing here. Don't forget the conservation lakes, they can be a lot of fun for bass & crappies

Thanks for the ideas fellas.

Barry, my target fish is walleyes, I guess I said it kind of unclear in my initial post, sorry for that.

I will definitely have to start venturing out and hit some new water.

Hope they're biting for ya'll,

Thanks,

KCW

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.
    •     What one did you get???
    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
