|DeadHead||Stockton has the numbers while Bull Shoals has the size. Please note though, this whole year has been somewhat "off" from other years. We usually troll lead core and cranks at the depth are electronics show. Other times BB crawlers on inside bends. Don't forget the flats either. As they say, YMMV.|

HAR HAR HAR DeadHead!
Thanks for the info eagle19eye - probably should have mentioned that it will be the end of Oct/first of Nov when we're there for the eyes... Advice might be different for that time of year...
Have a splendid day!

THERE ARE NO WALLEYES IN MISSOURI! REPEAT...NONE!
Everybody KNOWS that they only live up North. 😈

|eagle19eye||I've found the walleye shallow and deep at this time of year in the southern reservoirs. Good luck getting info from the locals. They seem to protect their secrets more than most people. Pay attention to the water temp and find if the turnover has occurred. Most drift or troll for the walleye down in the south in the warmer months. In the fall long stick baits work up shallow. Rouges are the best for this. Its imperative that you use a light line in these clear waters, the fish will and do get spooked easily.|

I know this is a really OLD post, but the last post above is not too old. We will be traveling thru MO on a family trip, and want to learn about some eye fishing there. We'll be in the general area of Branson, so any fishing holes reasonably close would be great. We'll not be there long, but would like some crappie and some eyes. PM me if you don't want to post anything here, but I would be very grateful for info. Last time there, about 3 years ago, we caught white bass out the wazzu - but have had a lot of those recently and want something different!
Thanks in advance,

I'm also on the Ozarks and have only caught walleye on accident...usually bass fishing in the summer off of points with a small shad colored crank bait, such as Manns Middle N.
I'm hoping to fish 10 days in March...hopefully a few of those days trying to figure out the walleye. I've heard that there is a good population from some old timers, but they wouldn't give me much info...other than to say they used to catch them in the state park, near party cove.
Any thoughts on what type of water to look for? and what bait?

I too live in MO and fish Truman, Stockton and Mark Twain for walleye. The walleye numbers have steadily increased in MO over the years with the three mentioned bodies of water having fishable populations. The easiest place to start is below Truman in the tailrace usually starting in mid-February. Its freaky how many 10#+ walleyes come out of there in the spring. It would also sicken a lot of diehard walleye guys to see how many of those hit the frying pan too.
The mid-south impoundments can be a bit challenging for a traditional walleye fisherman at first. At least it took me a bit to get a handle on. One great source of information is the local MDC lake biologists. Every time I have spoken with one about "their" lake they were tripping over themselves to pass their knowledge along about walleyes locations and behavior on their specific body of water.

Danny (and Tonyo) RPS offered sound advice. Join those forums, ask questions, do some research. You should easily reach your 2013 goal. The Missouri Ozarks area offers some fine walleye fishing.

If I see you I will stop by.
I am in a 1990 Crestliner with a 150 johnson on the back.
I spend most of my time from the Dam to the 5 Mile Marker.
