With gas prices going crazy Ive been doing quite abit of fishing close to home on the Osage River. The Osage has been about 7 ft high over the last week and it was perfect for some flipping. I put in at St Thomas ramp on Monday and just worked my way up river hitting every slew possible. The first slew I pulled into Monday was loaded up with fish. We started flipping the new Blk Blue Jared Lintner Pitchin Jig by Omega Custom Tackle tipped with a black 4inch black Berkley Chigger craw in the thickest cover I could find. A buddy flipped in a bush about 5 times and loaded up on a 3.5 pd Kentucky. That was all we needed to now. Its all up hill from here. We would catch a toad in about ever 5 bushes or lay downs. We ended up never leaving the slew and ended up with 5 nice Kentuckys that would have went about 15 pds. I went again on Wendsday and again put in at St Thomas. Started in the same slew and only one keeper out of there about a 2.5 pd KY. So I then headed up river and pulled in to the sweetest creek Ive ever been in. It was muddy like the rest of the river but the further I idled back the clearer it got. I went from 6" of clarity to 5 ft. It was crazy. I started flipping and hooked a toad. A 5 pounder. I I flipped another 20 times another 5 pounder still on the same Jared Lintner Pitching Jig. It slowed down for awhile so I wanted to play around with some lures and I tied a Tru Tungsten Frog on and worked it threw the flooded trees and after about 50 cast a 5.5 pounder came up and choked it. My first fish ever on a frog. That will get you hooked on frog fishing. The only bad thing is that was the only fish I caught on it. I then flipped for the rest of the day catching numerous 2 to 3 pnd KY and a estimated 21 pds on the Osage River. Ive fished this river for along time now and my first time I ever broke 20 pounds. So if anyone wants to cut back on gas prices be sure to head out on a river. Special thanks to Omega Custom Tackle 7/24 Outdoors and The Rod Glove.
