I gotta say I am certainly no fishing expert, especially fishing in Missouri, but I was shocked that Lake of the Ozarks and Table Rock Lake didn't make it on to this list. Those are two of the most well-known lakes in Missouri and from what I have heard both are good fishing spots. Also, no love for the Mississippi River or the Missouri River...two of the biggest most important rivers in the US shape the Show-Me State and neither makes the list. Where is your go-to spot for fishing in Missouri?
