Tomorrow morning I head to Lake of the Ozarks for my first open water fishing trip of the year. I have never fished on Lake of the Ozarks so it will be a learning experience as well. Reading some of Internet reports puts the fish in pre spawn so jerk baits, jigs and spinnerbaits will be how I will start the trip. Looking at the maps there seems to be a lot of coves and indents that will hold fish. Weather does not look to be very stable. Ranging from sunny to rain for the 3 days I will be there. I will post a report when I return. Hopefully with a pic or two to post.
