    I'm heading up to Lake of the Ozarks in the middle of March and would love to catch some cats, don't care which kind. Can anyone give me some tips? Haven't fished up there a whole lot.

    Throw us a bone... What part of the lake are you going to be on? It's about 93 miles from Bagnell Dam to Truman Dam, that's a lot of water...

    Early in the season like that, I'd be looking shallow. Real shallow. Like less than 10 ft shallow. Use fresh cut shad and move around until you find them.

    I will be fishing the Gravois Arm most of the time, but was also thinking about trying the spillway area of Bagnell Dam if there is a boat ramp there. I don't know much about the area so I figured I'd ask the experts.

    The fish in my avatar came from LOZ in March. Fresh liver, fresh cut bluegill, or if you can find it shad work well. Fish around docks that clean a lot of fish and fish on the bottom or fish suspended vertically over the old river channels. Find the thermocline and fish close to it.
