    Looking to fish and run lines at Roscoe this weekend. Haven't fished this particular stretch in years. Any advice on throwing for shad, where to set lines, or where to buy big live bait en route from Kansas City?

    Baits been pretty scattered. Might try on the sac arm for shad. The bait shop in taberville use to have perch. Primitivefrn will probably see this and be able to tell you more.
    Good luck out there....

    Roscoe is west of Osceola on Hwy 82. on the upper end of trumans osage arm. I would guess it to be around the 60 mile mark as osceola is at the 50 I believe.

    River has been coming down should be leveling out about week end. would look for some deep holes, and mouth of feeder creeks. pole in mouth of feeder creek will usually get you a flathead.
    Will be going through Taberville tomarrow, will check and see what hes got.
    dont know of bait shop around Osceola, that has trot line bait, does'nt mean their isn't one though.

    It was closed the last time I was there ( for snagging) I heard the owners got a divorce. Can't say I will miss the $12 12 pack of beer:roll_eyes: they sold

    We went snagging the last week of the season and that bait shop was closed then. There was a small one open just south of there. Instead of turning right to get to the old bait shop turn left, go a couple hundred yards, turn right, then a couple more hundred and it will be on the right. It was a trailer and there was a saw mill out back. I know they had snagging supplies and few other items but I'm not for sure what they had for bait. I would think there should be some kind of a bait store around Clinton.
