I Feel Stupid

Recommended Posts

Ok most of 54 years I have fished Northern Missouri where its Big Cats,Carp and Bluegill.So since I moved here 14 years ago I've drove 20 or 30 miles to more of the muddier slow river running into the Lakes because that is what I feel comfortable with.

I have fished for Trout on up the Niangua and have fished for the warmer water fish down at Tunnel Dam.

I know this is stupid but I live across the highway from Lead Mine Conservation Area have fished the river very little there.But with the price of Gas it makes too much sence to fish there.

What is the best way to consistantly catch fish on Rod and Reel from this area?Even Suckers.I know I could Gig for them but I don't have a Boat rigged up for it.

Is there warm water fish such as Cats and Carp in this area of the river?

Thanks in advance and hope to see you down there.

OneShot,

there is good Catfishing at both access if you have a boat. The upper access does allow some decent fishing from shore. I usually do a two day float up above Leadmine and put out a couple of cat rods in the evening. I have caught a few over 5lbs but most are just good eating size... If you would like more specifics about the river please PM me.

:lol: To me its the big Mo. When I was a kid we would make a big trip once in awhile to the lake, there was only one, LOZ. When I was on my own it was creeks and rivers, and like you, clear was when you could see something a 1" under the surface. :)
