If you’re a fisherman living in the Lee’s Summit, MO area, or the greater Kansas City, MO area, you may have noticed a problem. Fishing reports for Lee’s Summit area fishing are virtually non-existent!
As the writer for the Kansas City Star fishing report, I noticed a need for more information about local lakes in Lee’s Summit. Unfortunately, I can only go so far for the paper because resources are limited to bigger lakes like Blue Springs, Longview, and Lake Jacomo. But I want to know more about other local lakes close to where I live, and most especially, those where I can find success fishing from the bank.
Internet searches yielded little information about local fishing. The resources I did find were outdated, oftentimes 5 -10 years old. After brainstorming with some buddies, the solution was simple. A Facebook group that promoted local fishing and shared relevant information about catching fish was the answer.
