Brandon Butler and Nathan “Shags” McLeod sit down with Big Ed, owner of Big Ed’s Guide Service, and Bass & Baskets Inn on Lake of the Ozarks.
About Big Ed’s Guide Service:
Many years, lost lures, big bass (small ones too) and true fish stories later, he settled down at Lake of the Ozarks, doing what he truly loves for a living – teaching others and helping others catch (and release) bass.
Big Ed fishes out of a fully loaded 921 Phoenix bass boat and is licensed by the US Coast Guard. With him, bass fishing is catch-and-release only. He’s working hard to make sure this lake is an exceptional fishery for years to come.
About Bass & Baskets:
They named their Inn Bass & Baskets – the “bass” came from a love for fishing and “baskets” from an affinity for collecting Longaberger Baskets®. They opened the doors to their recently revived cottage-turned-inn in 2001.
Today, they are one of the most well-regarded inns in the business. While they’ve won several industry awards, their finest accomplishment is the smile or hug from a guest at their departure.
