Lake is currently one foot high, water temparture is warming up it is now 51 degrees. Bass are being caught on jerkbait and crankbaits in about 5 feet of water, crappie are being caught up shallow in 5 feet of water, most of them are males right now. Muskies are hitting the bass lures and I saw a picture of a nice 42" caught on a jig and pig on the 4th of April. The walleye being caught are still loaded with eggs and it appears that the spawn is on, several reports of spawning walleye being caught up the Pomme River. JUST GOT OFF THE LAKE - Watch the Conservation Department run the muskie nets they set out yesterday, 4-7--14, they came up with 51 muskies, 4 above 40" actually they were 41" and a lot of muskies 39+. Going to run them again tomorrow, also in the nets were walleye and crappie, and a great big flathead catfish. All the fish had eggs and I believe in the starting process of the spawn. Day 2 OF MUSKIE NETTING Today they netted 68 muskies with the majority of them, both days, being males, there were a lot of nice fish. Also in the nets were an abundance of crappie and several walleye that are getting ready or are spawning. DAY 3 OF MUSKIE NETTING
Had to leave early only got to see 5 nets run but there were 25 in those five nets, more walleye today in those nets than the other days total. One was a monster walleye, had several of the muskies over 40" all these fish were extremely well fed with a lot of heavy weights being seen.

I want your trip to Pomme de Terre to be very enjoyable, why? because I want your return business. I offer dockside service to the resort where you are staying or I can meet you at a Marina close to where you will be staying. We will start the day by casting and then by trolling in the afternoon. If you wish to troll all day, or if you would rather cast, both are fine with me. We will do the type of fishing that suits you best. Muskies, like all fish, are unpredictable and if a poor day happens because of the weather or just a bad fishing day we can make arrangements for another trip at a reduced fee.
For your day on the water you will need the following equipment: current Missouri fishing license, rain gear (if necessary), beverages (I supply free bottled water) (each boat has a cooler), lunch if you wish to eat or we can stop and get something at a marina (one marina offers call in service for lunches)( time spent for lunch does not count against fishing time), snacks if you wish, make sure you have the appropriate clothing for the time of the year or current weather conditions. You can bring your own fishing equipment, don't have muskie tackle--I do--for you to use, one rule though - lose a lure - you have to replace it, sorry, but those things are very expensive, life jacket, but make sure that you limit the amount of tackle due to space limitations in boats. Donít forget your camera to take that picture of your muskie. I provide a check liston this website, print it out and use it. If you think of something that should be added let me know I am always trying to improve the service to you and everyone else. No alcohol, while in the boat, please.
1. A 21' Charger Bass Boat, very comfortable to fish out of, a very smooth ride on the water. The boat is powered by a 300 HP Johnson engine and has a 74 Lb. of thrust Minn Kota trolling motor. Getting anywhere on the lake in a short amount of time is no problem. Also in the boat is a Frabil Big Kahuna net to land your muskie.
2. A 24' Pontoon boat if you would just like to troll. Casting is also available from the pontoon depending on the number in the party. On the pontoon there is ample room to get up and move about. There is also some shelter from the sun and the rain if the need is there.
On both boats I provide free bottled water, each boat has a cooler for your use.
