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.

    • Same here. And look how well twetter is working for da prez!!
    • All forums have a certain shelf life. There is only so long that the debate over Ford/ Chevy, Vex/Marcin. Eskimo/ Strike master, Ice Castle / Yeti can keep your attention. After a while most just slip away. New people are using social apps more that the old forum formats and that is that. The only thing saving silly town is that politics is the gift that keeps on giving. 
    • Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is among GOP leaders saying Republicans and Democrats now need to work together on a fix. Over the weekend, Rep. Betty McCollum and Sen. Al Franken – both Democrats — said they agreed with Graham. “That is what we need to do,” Franken said on WCCO Sunday Morning. “Speaker Ryan said at the end of this process that the Affordable Care Act is the the law of the land. We need to address what’s wrong with the Affordable Care act, what isn’t working.” Immediately after pulling the bill, Trump said he would be willing to work with Democrats on health care.     Too big to fail.....deja vu

    •     I saw a couple of statements in the media yesterday from Dem leadership to the effect that they would be interested in working with Ryan on this.  One from our very own Al Franken.  So that tells me they most likely already are.      
    •   The 20" box fan thread was very informative, and lasted for years....
    • Possibly but it seems like the Democrats are now in the beginning stages of floating single payer. Lots of talk on that since the neocons dropped the ball
    • Kinda like the Eskimo thread on I.S. some years back?
