It's a beautiful day for some Missouri fishing. You're up at the crack of dawn, ready to catch that trophy bass. That's good... we'll be waiting for you at sunrise to get you started on one of the most satisfying fishing experiences you've ever had. With the sun peeking through the foliage-lined banks of fish-laden waters, you're ready to cast off.
Angler's Paradise are Missouri fishing lakes designed and managed so you will have a successful day of fishing with or without a fishing guide. If you want to fish in privacy, we'll send you off with a well-marked fishing map and a few tips on where the fish are biting to experience bass fishing the way it used to be - the way you've always thought it should be!
The diversity of cover on our trophy fishing lake provides good action even through hot summer days. When sundown approaches, early shadows form along the steep west wall of our Missouri fishing lake, which makes for an extended evening bite.
If you choose to fish our lakes without a guide, we'll meet you at a prearranged time at the ramp and help you take your boat out of the water. Spending the night? Just tie your fishing boat up at the dock, plug in the battery charger, and make the short walk up to your modern cabin.
Angler's Paradise encourages the harvest of crappie and perch for the table. The fishery is restricted to catch-and-release for bass longer than 15 inches.
Daily fishing limits on smaller bass, crappie, and perch vary and are available from our office when reservations are made.
Trophy bass caught at Angler's Paradise MO Fishing Lake
Jigs have a way of drawing the really big bites. It’s no different on Three Mile Lake at Angler’s Paradise. What is different about our Missouri private fishing lake is the abundant grass more common in Midwestern farm ponds combined with deep water similar to large lake impoundments.
Our Florida Strain bass love the grass, but sometimes hole up in the timber as well. This 9# bass was caught on a Tourney Jig fishing jig designed for swimming in grass, but was pulled from a brushpile in 20 feet of water. The Gamakatsu hooks are super sharp and strong enough to withstand the tug of our big, strong bass.
Carl Boaz helped me out with the jig I caught this fish on. My stockpile of Junebug fishing jigs was dwindling and Carl ended my two year search for replacements. I keep plenty in stock now, but he is always prompt to fill my orders. Recently I had him build me some ¼ oz models to fish on lighter tackle, particularly for some of my guided customers that use spinning tackle. My first student quickly caught on to this fishing technique and landed several nice fish minutes after I tied the jig on and told her how to fish it. Tourney Jigs does not sponsor Angler’s Paradise, but they surely make my fishing and guiding much easier, particularly when BIG TROPHY BASS are the number one priority!
