Lake of the Ozarks is an extremely popular vacation destination in Missouri. It is only about a 3 hour drive from St. Louis, making it a convenient getaway destination for those living in and around the city. The lake is very popular among fishermen and boaters, but there are plenty of other things to do here such as golfing, shopping, dining and just relaxing around the lake.
Bass fishing tournaments are common throughout the summer months. Recreational anglers target largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, spotted bass, white bass, crappie, bluegill, rock bass and catfish. Take a look at our Lake of the Ozarks fishing tips page for more fishing information.
