Do you ever feel like contemplating life for hours on end? Do you enjoy the outdoors and avoiding human interaction? If so, we have a special activity for you – it’s called fishing. Did we mention you can tell everyone around you to shut it without being rude? Time to get out and give it a go. Here’s a few places where you can experience MO fishing and less problems.
August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area
Also known as “Busch Wildlife,” the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area is almost 7,000 acres in size. With that, over 500 acres are ponds and lakes, 28 of which are open to fishing. Purchased by the Busch Family, along with the Missouri Department of Conservation, in 1947 – this land was dedicated to August A. Busch, Sr. and our longstanding commitment to conservation. The following fish are stocked, thanks to the Missouri Department of Conservation:
Lake of the Ozarks
While Missouri is the heart of the nation, the Lake of the Ozarks is the heart of Missouri. Located right in the middle of the state with 54,000 acres and over 1,150 miles of shoreline, this lake is primed for fishing. If you want to know where and how to fish here, Bassing Bob provides weekly fishing reports. The following fish are stocked here:
Table Rock Lake
Table Rock Lake’s 52,000 acres and 800 miles of shoreline has been attracting fishermen to Branson, MO for decades. Specifically its production of bass has made it one of the top bass fishing lakes in North America. Annual fishing tournaments are also held on this lake. The following fish are stocked here:
License to Fish
Did you get all that? We just informed you of over 100,000 acres and over 2,000 miles of shoreline where you can be sitting, standing, or riding in a boat to get the catch of the day. If you don’t already have your Missouri Fishing License, then it’s about damn time.
Did you know that Kräftig uses only the purest water to create our Kräftig Lager and Kräftig Light? It’s true. So go ahead – crack open a cold one, cast out a line, and enjoy the sound of silence. You’ve earned it.
