7-17-14 The water level at the lake is normal pool. Water temperature is 82 degrees. Muskie fishing time is rapidly approaching probably about 4 weeks away, can't get here soon enough for me. I have been catching walleye everyday but not the big ones you like to brag about. It has been tough but if you stick with it you can catch them. I have been spotting fish down to 35 feet but the majority of them have been around 25 feet so I would guess that is where the thermocline would be. Been catching some nice catfish trolling for walleye but I look for that to slow down because I think their spawn is over, will catch a few more though. Crappie are being caught over brush piles and around trees in about 25 feet of water using minnows and jigs. It has been a weird summer but things are looking up.d
Fireworks Over The Water July 5th - Saturday Night
Pomme de Terre is located in SW Missouri, An hour north of Springfield, Mo. 2 hours south of Kansas City, Mo. 3 hours west of St. Louis, Mo.
Whole & Half Day Muskie Hunts Available
I want your trip to Pomme de Terre to be very enjoyable, why? because I want your return business. 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.
