They are currently letting out 1620 CFS. Lake is going down around
3" per day. Walleye have started to hit, along with some crappie,
still slow on both species but picking up. While trolling for
walleye today caught a 14.5" crappie, filleted out real nice, so did the

for some scattered showers on Thursday, things may get back to normal
for a while, except for the heat....
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 will make arrangements for another trip at a
Wanna take the wife and kids for a pontoon boat ride around the lake?
I also provide tours of the lake, call for pricing on this.
It will be catch & release for Muskies unless by chance we get a state record in the
boat and the chances for that seem better all the time with the amount of
Muskies being caught on Pomme. I can put you in touch with a couple of
taxidermists that will make replicas of your catch while you leave it alive to

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 list on 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
No alcohol, while in the boat, please.
