As the days get longer and we inch even closer to Spring — just 9 days away — it’s time to get out your fishing poles and head to the Lake of the Ozarks!
The Kansas City Star recently wrote about where the fish will be biting in 2014.
The Lake of the Ozarks made the cut for several types of fish, including:
- Largemouth Bass
- White Bass

For all of the avid fisherman out there — this is for you!
According to LakeNewsOnline.com, this regulation, beginning March 1, was put in place over concern “about the potential over-harvest of these fish”.
Please be aware of the following regulations as you fish at the Lake of the Ozarks this year. The new regulations are listed below:
- Ten blue catfish daily
- A protected slot-length limit of 26-34 inches (7-16 pounds)
- Fish within the slot must be returned to the water unharmed immediately.
- Two blue catfish larger than 34 inches
- These two fish would count toward the daily limit of 10.
