Lake of the Ozarks

5 posts in this topic

So a buddy of mine invites me to go on a paddle fish trip to lake of the ozarks in MO this april. I of course being thoroughly addicted to catfishing do some research and point out to him all the other opportunities that exist in that area. Does anybody have any experience down there or could give me some hints how to fish in that type of body of water? I've done all the internet research I can and I've got an idea, but any extra hints would be appreciated.

hey, native missourian living in minnesota - just a couple things to throw out there, this may not be of much help but i know LOZ is a great crappie fishery, brushpiles off docks, also seen lots of white bass/wipers attacking bait in summertime.

i know there are some pretty big cats taken from the main river channel in the Gravois arm, and of course the spotted and largemouth bass fishing is great. i believe stripers are available below the dam along with the normal stuff, wish i had more specific info for ya but i'm a hardcore musky nut now and don't get back home too much. have fun, i have lots of good memories from that area.

I think I'd rather go play in the Osage River coming out of the lake.....I've heard stories anyway smile

Thanks for the input.

Osage river? I was planning on doing some drifting for blues and channels. Spend a couple hours snagging paddlefish then chase cats. My poor simple minded buddy never even thought of trying to catch catfish.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
