Fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks

Is it time for you to get away? 

Covering 54,000 acres and over 1,150 miles of shoreline, the Lake of the Ozarks is home to some of the best fishing in the country. The biggest question for the average fishmerman is, "When and where is the best time to catch largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, white bass, etc?" 

With the help of we want to provide you with a weekly fishing report to give you some pointers on when, where and how to fish the many coves, docks and shorelines at Lake of the Ozarks. Please check out Bassing Bob's daily/weekly/monthly fishing reports as well as videos and more.

The Lake is loaded with a variety of fish species: largemouth bass, spotted bass, black and white crappie, blue catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, white bass, hybrid stripers, paddlefish, walleye and bluegill.

The Lake's state parks also attract anglers year-round. Lake of the Ozarks State Park in Osage Beach offers boat ramps, dock-fishing and crappie beds. Ha Ha Tonka State Park near Camdenton has two boat docks and allows fishing from marked access points. The Gravois Mills MDC Access has a free boat ramp and it is only 15 minutes to the Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast in Versailles. 

Numerous bait shops, boat rentals, fishing outfitters and full-service marinas also serve the Lake area.

If you want to just cut to the chase, call on one of the Lake's independent fishing guides. These pros will take you directly to the "hot spots" and provide tackle and bait.

If you prefer not to stay in a motel, but in a comfortable home away from home bed and breakfast with a home cooked breakfast then the 1877 Victorian Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast in Versailles is for you. 

The 1800’s Experience 

Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast Inn Keeper Doris Hitly has graciously opened her two-story home for guests to experience what it was like to live in an 1800’s mansion at the turn of the century. 

In true Victorian Style, the front of the house features gingerbread detail on the porches. 

A two-story screened in veranda at the back of the home allows guests to quietly relax and enjoy fresh air and conversation.

Each room is a showcase of antiques, collectibles, and Victorian décor.

A beautiful open staircase, with a walnut newel post, ascends to beautifully appointed bedrooms, each with a private bath.

Queen Ann-leg dressers and comfortable antique beds beckon guests to a quiet and restful night’s sleep. Thoughtful touches pamper guests with chocolates on your pillow, soft pillows and hand sewn postage stamp quilts. 

A sitting room can make your room a suite and private porches are also available on request. There is television, WIFI, cable and gourmet coffee too! 

Doris Hilty is a charming hostess with infectious hospitality. She invites guests to the island to chat while she cooks breakfast. It is served in the dining room on a table carefully set with good china.

We are sure you find that pairing together the Hilty Inn Bed and Breakfast with a day spent out on the water fishing will not only be fun, but pure therapy for the body and soul!
