Pomme de Terre: Quietly Awesome

By Tom Uhlenbrock

PITTSBURG, Mo. – The long, silvery body of a large fish broke the glassy surface of Pomme de Terre Lake just as Earle Hammond brought his pontoon boat to a halt at his favorite fishing hole. We hoped it was an omen of good things to come.

“That was a muskie right there, with its snout up out of the water,” Hammond said. “You don’t catch a muskie every day. Expect the best, but don’t count on it.”
