Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri
Known as being one of the best bass lakes in the United States, it is no surprise that many amateur fishing lovers hail from all corners of the country to visit Table Rock Lake.
Since the water is clear most of the year smaller natural baits work best. Along with using live bait, plastic worms have also proved to be most effective during the catch.
If you are a kayak fisherman you will need one of the higher quality fish finders because the water can be discolored and it can sometimes be very difficult to determine the water’s depth. Keep a lookout for objects or vegetation on the lake’s floor, as this generally where the bass tend to gather.
Kentucky Lake, Kentucky/Tennessee
The largest man made lake on the eastern side of the Mississippi, Kentucky Lake runs North to South along the Western tip of Kentucky and nearly the entire western border of Tennessee.
Interestingly enough, this man made lake contains every species of freshwater fish which is one of the many reasons it is such a desirable destination for fishing lovers.
Kobuk River, Alaska
The Kobuk River is famous for containing a variety of fish which we don’t see in the lower 48 and you can only access this river by a small airplane. Kobuk river is famous for sheefish, arctic grayling, lake trout, arctic char, chum salmon and northern pike.
The sheefish is the most common fish species in the area and it has a similar taste and size to halibut. Since they grow quite large, you would need a larger rig to catch.Since Sheefish are aggressive fighters and feed on smaller fish, use a 2-3 inch line to catch them.
While these are top three areas for freshwater fishing, there are so many other places to visit that have an abundance of aquatic wildlife.
