Lake of the Ozarks

There are many positive aspects of Lake of the Ozarks in regards to its fishing, to counter its negative reputation of being covered up in the summer by boaters. The lake sprawls over mid-Missouri, covering 54,000 acres with two major river arms, the Osage and Niangua. The deepest part of the lake is only 100-feet deep, and fish have plenty of cover since new structure has been added over the past few years by anglers and dock owners alike. Lake of the Ozarks sports crappie by the millions, it seems; fishing in and around docks has become an Olympic sport there. Some of the best bass fishing can be found on the lake, according to most of the professional bass circuits that all make an annual stop here.
