I have known Ed Franko for a handful of years now. He is the top fishing guide on Lake of the Ozarks.
I have fished with him there several times. Ed is also an expert at fishing below Bagnell Dam, in the Osage River.
The first time Ed took me on the river I fell in love with it. I grew up river-fishing and there is nothing else like it.
He launches his boat in the shadow of Bagnell Dam. Because of his jet boat, Ed can get to rarely-fished sections of the river that only very few others can get to. He runs at full throttle in water no more than a foot deep.
