Table Rock Lake - Ranked One of the Best


Table Rock Lake is a very clear water lake and covers 43,000 Acres. It has been Ranked Nationally for its' numbers and size of Bass / Crappie.

This is a lake located in Missouri near Branson that attracks all the Music Listeners. If you want to get away for a fun filled fishing day, you'll be close enough to get back to Branson for a night of entertainment from nationally known singers who have built their own facilities in this small city located in the mountains. 

You can bring your own boat. They have a great launch site called Bent Hook Marina that is full service. If you choose not to bring your own boat, they do rent out Bass Trackers by half day or full day. They also have Ski boats and Pontoon boats.

Bent Hook Marina also has professional guides that can take you to the honey holes and see that you haul in a hog or two.

Big Cedar Lodge is about a ten minute drive from Branson Mo and in my books I have to rate it at 5 Stars *****. Guest may choose to stay the big lodge or you my choose to stay in a Knoty Pine Cottage Log Cabin. No matter which way you choose, it will be a trip of a lifetime that will not be forgotten.

The rates are good. Visitors, Sunday through Thursday from January 1 - March 8, can

get a real good deal. Expect to pay more for the weekend but once you have been a customer; you will return and become family.

I highly recommend to call ahead to make reservations at 1-800-225-6343 or visit them at or if you have a Bass Pro shop in your area, they have a deal inside Bass Pro where you can go in and book your trip.

The fishing is the best; this is one lake you will learn to fish a Drop Shot, crankbaits and even the never fail Worm or Lizard.

I have fished a lot of lakes but can not recall one that I could look down into the water and see so far down. This brings up the small problem of if you can see the fish, you can bet they see you long before you see them.

This Lake will accommodate you with the three basic things I tell you to look for when you fish a lake that you have never seen. Look for the rocks (there is plenty of them), Grass coming off the banks and just sticking out of the water, and of course you will have plenty of wood to land a hog.

Do not forget that camera. I am sure there is going to be a few pictures you will want to save.

When booking your trip of a life time, don't forget to tell them you heard about it at  

Big Cedar also has other locations from Florida to Texas and other special places to check out for great get aways.
