Been fishing a bunch and catching them real good. Had a 6/6 big old bug eye molly hod bass day before yesterday and want to catch more of them... With all the rain we have had they shut the lake down to no wake for a day . CAN YOU SAY HEAVEN Well they dropped down enough to go crazy again so off the water I am for a few days... Hey Happy forth of July to all you guys!

During the last high water the fishing was so hot the fish were sweating. Caught 30 to 40 bass every day on a good old worm. Fun fun Fun.. Now the weather has gotten real good anfd hot and the fishing has slowed but they still can be caught.

Fishing has slowed way down here at the lake. So has the guide business also. I guess it is a blessing because the fishing is so slow. oh you can go out and catch them. But I was so blessed this year so far with great fishing it is kid of disappointing to me. getting ready to head to Canada to fish Thursday so hopefully I will be back in the groove when I get back. Hope everyone is doing fine !

It has been a real good summer . Caught fish like crazy and stayed real busy. Picked up a couple of new sponsors Lew's Fishing and also Phoenix Boats. Fall fishing is just around the corner looking forward to that. Good Fishing!

Thanks for all the steady postings about fishing, Big Ed! I enjoy them like I'm sure lots of other members do too!

The past few weeks the fishing has been tougher that a two dollar steak. finally we are getting a little cooler weather. The shad have started moving back in the coves and that is where you can find some bigger bass. Normally at this time of the year the white bass are getting with it. I have only caught a few so far this year. The guide business is slowing down a little but still getting a few trips each week. Hey come on down and lets go fishing.

I have to admit something last night I cooked some Flathead Catfish OMG I soaked it in ice water with a little salt over night. Then yesterday I took it out and changed the water then drained it and then put in in milk for a hour or so. Drained it then I breaded it in corn meal and let it swim in hot oil until golden brown. That stuff is slap your mom good. I had cut all of the red meat out of it and had nothing but white meat. i swear it was the best fish I have ever had.

Good night on the lake last night . My clients had 6 keepers and several shorts. I think the cooler weather is starting to help. It will then the turnover and that will change things for a week or so. Come on white bass I got people that want to catch you.

Been busy been on the injured reserve been out of town but been fishing too. The fish are on the corners of the big docks and can be caught on topwater baits. This is kind of a normal pattern for this time of the year... i got a new boat and really haven't got to use it much because of a knee surgery.

The weather is cooling down and so is the water finally. Looking forward to some fantastic fall / winter fishing once again here at the lake. Fall Sept and Oct can be tough as a two dollar steak with no exception this year. Going out in a little to fish until dark fun times I hope.

Fishing SUCKS the past few days. You can catch a few but they are few and far between. We have a mega storm going to hit today so I think I will stay dry docked today.

Good morning on the lake today . I was surprised caught about a dozen bass on jerk baits on the windy shade side of docks. We fished the flats where all the wind has been blowing and came up empty. The water temp is still in the mid 60s. saw lots of shad but the big bass are not getting after them yet.

Peabo I am sorry but for some reason I can't post pictures on here. I have lots of pictures on my web site bigedsguideservice.com. The fishing here at the lake is the worse it has ever been for winter time fishing. Cold and Muddy water just doesn't go together. Going to give it a try again tomorrow as we are expecting a warming trend through the weekend. We had skim ice here the past few days and the backs of the covers are frozen but the main lake is open. It does however look like you could plant corn in it. Normally this lake is clear 15 foot or better of visbilty but not this year.. The fish are in shock.. If this was April, May or June you could smoke them...

Just got back from a cruise and ready to fish.. Went the other day and caught several bass and a couple of dandy's on a crankbait. I kissed a Stingray on the cruise so that gives me 8 years of good luck. SO WATCH OUT FISH!

Wow I din't realize how long it has been since i have visited here. Been fishing every day and not killing them but doing ok. This lake is fishing really tough this year for some reason. I just got back from Cedar Lake in Canada where we just flat kicked the dogstuff out of the smallmouth bass. I had a great time.... Already making plans for our return trip next year. Good fishing You guys!

Good day fellow fisherman...... I have been catching the bass real good on a drop shot .. However last night we caught them like a crazy on a Pop R as we lucked out and found them chasing shad. Then after that stopped we fished a couple of other spots and then we found the White Bass. We caught them real good for at least an hour. It was cast reel catch fish take off cast reel catch fish. It was a hoot.... Going to go get them again tonight.... Have a good one guys Big Ed out!!!

Cooler weather is on us and it is changing the fishing daily. Had been catching fish on a big worm and now they wont eat it.. I have been catching fish on a drop shot real good so tomorrow that will give it a try. Been catching fish on top water on the corners of the docks hope that pattern gets stronger. It should as the fish are starting to move into the coves following the shad. been a while since I have been on here been a busy summer...

Had a little neck surgery couple of weeks ago . I had several vertebrae fused and I feel 100% better. I did venture out in my cove today and caught a few. The water temperature is in the lower 60s and the air temp was in the lower 60s also. The fish are ganged up on the corners of the big docks and are eager to eat. Caught about fifteen bass in a couple of hours. No monsters just good quality fish..The temp is going to take a plunge tomorrow so I hope to fish just one more time.

Catching crappie like crazy. Water temp is in the low 50s and all you have to do is look for them on the locator and start catching... The fish are along the big docks and are suspended down about ten feet in water twenty foot or deeper. The crappie are nice size for the table twelve to 14 inches long. Catching lots of smaller one also. We caught our limits 15 each in less than two hours yesterday..

Lake of the Ozarks is on Fire.. this past weekend it took over 20 pounds to cash a check in the tournaments.. That's a four pound average.. The lake isn't really giving the fish up super easy but throw a mo rig and you will catch them.. i perfer a spinnerbait in the backs of windy coves ...This weekend we are going to get some snow so that will slow things down some....

Unreal fishing here at Beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. The fish are biting like crazy and it is really easy picking for me right now. A guides dream come true I guess you could say. All you have to do is find them on the locator on a main lake point and catch them. It is really almost that easy. Drop shot drag a turd it is almost that easy. Good times for sure for sure...
