Smithville Lake Guide Service

4 hour guide trip on Smithville Lake for two people $275.00  


  $25 per hour beyond 4 hours.  A third person can possibly be added for an additional $75

Bait and appropriate lures and gas provided.   If you wish to take fresh fish home to eat I will clean  them for you faster than you have ever seen, assuming you catch some keepers.  (up to 2 limits- that's 30 fish!!  additional limit cleaned is $20)

   If this winter is any indication of what is to come next spring I can't wait.  The fish are easy to catch and the size is nice.   You can catch a limit of fish that are legal keepers in an hour or two.   If you want the larger fish you can be selective and keep fish only 10" or larger and it might take a little longer but easily done.  You will even have a few 12" monsters in the well.  

If you are interested in heading to Stockton Lake for crappie or walleye call Bob at stockton lake 417-637-2277

Crappie Blog:  People are starting to catch some nice crappie up in the Little Platte river arm of the lake but not real consistently.  Evenings are better than mornings right now most of the time.  I will try to get out some this week and check the dirty water situation from the rain.
