    I live in Warrensburg MO, and was wondering some good places to bank fish in the surronding area. If anyone knows please help. Also wish I had a boat!

    I see both of you are here in the 'Burg. I'd be happy to get together and go over a map or two. There are a lot of good locations within an hour's drive.

    You can do OK on Truman Lake down by Windsor Crossing, south of Windsor.

    As you drive south past Windsor Crossing, there's a bar/motel on the right. Turn on that road and follow it to the water. Plenty of nice places to fish. I wouldn't go down there with a car though - you'll need a truck.

    Also on 7 Hwy about 5 or 10 miles west of Clinton there are 3 or 4 bridges in a row that you can fish under.

    Study the Google satellite maps of the area and you can probably find more places to try... This URL shows Windsor Crossing: http://maps.google.com/maps?q=Windsor,+MO&ll=38.360806,-93.541288&spn=0.02443,0.053902&t=h&om=1

    I don't know what size fish you are trying to find, but Hazel Hill (north on 13 about halfway to Higginsville) and Maple Leaf (West on I-70 access road from Higginsville) are decent for channel cats of eating size. Hazel Hill cats can be caught at any time of the day, though night is best. I haven't caught a Maple Leaf during the day, but the bass hit those live bluegill really well too. I used to catch my bait with a net or ultra-light pole with a bit of worm (and I tell you what, catching a 6# channel on 4# test line is FUN!). Usually I used bluegill (I prefer live, but cut works some too) but when I could get it, I would use the large shiners that I caught (up to 11"). Those would catch anything when cut for bait, even largemouth bass.
