March is Our Busy Season, After that it's Time to Relax and Enjoy

The Osage has a well deserved reputation as the Spoonbill Capital of the World.  It is March Madness like nowhere else on earth.  

The rest of the year offers angling for the legendary monster Blue and Flathead catfish that deliver an experience like nothing else on pole and line. Plenty of water, let's go fishin'.

Spring 2012 catfishing was the best season on record including a 65 pounder (catch and release) landed just days before snagging season.

For those so inclined, Eagle watching adventures begin May 2, 2013 on both Harry S Truman Reservoir and Lake of the Ozarks. Relax onboard with Anthony touring live nesting eagle sites along the waters of the beautiful Osage basin of the Missouri Ozarks that he loves.

When summer arrives, it is time to relax and enjoy life on the lake, with as many catfishing trips thrown in as possible.

Thanks everybody who booked early for snagging this season.

I have given up the online calendar.  It cuts too much into time on the water.

For 2013, some snagging days are already booked, many dates remain open.

Call or email and lets get hooked up for adventure on the water like nothing else on earth.

It Takes Work to Land a Monster

"When you’re going after the biggest fish in the lake, you don’t go to battle with a switch and a prayer."

December, January, and February is prime time to catch the monster blues of the Osage.  Find them, catch them, almost that easy.
