In the overall world of fishing, the words “Missouri” and “musky” are seldom used in the same sentence.
There is good and bad in that fact.
The good is that Missouri fisheries biologists have worked hard to make places like Pomme de Terre, in west-central Missouri, quality musky fishing destinations.
The bad is that so few anglers know about this and take advantage of it.
I have personally tried to catch musky in Canada and at Lake Vermillion, Minnesota. Both were unsuccessful attempts.
So, during a minor epiphany, I decided to try catching some southern musky, for a change.
