With more than 800 miles of shoreline, Table Rock Lake outside Branson, Missouri, is still Johnny Morris's favorite fishing hole. "Even though I've had the opportunity to fish all around the globe, my heart always comes back to my native waters – Table Rock Lake in the Missouri Ozarks. Smallmouth and largemouth [bass] are abundant and sometimes even easy to catch." Stay at Morris's Big Cedar Lodge. [From $200 a night; big-cedar.com]
