Brown trout caught at Lake Taneycomo sets new Missouri record

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


A Missouri man just became the new state record-holder for brown trout, hauling in a 40-pound, 6-ounce fish at Lake Taneycomo in Branson on Wednesday using a pole and line.

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) said Bill Babler of Blue Eye, which is just north of the Missouri-Arkansas border, became the new record-holder after it verified his catch on a certified scale in Branson.

The fish was 41.25 inches long and had a girth of 28 inches, T he Springfield News-Leader reported.

Babler told the newspaper he’d been out fishing only for a few minutes when he caught the brown trout.
“As soon as I set the hook, it came to the top and I knew we had a good fish on,” Babler said. “We positioned the boat in an unobstructed area. It was pulling drag pretty good!”
Babler said he tried to keep the fish alive in an aerated tank, but it died before it could be released.
The fish was eight or nine years old, fisheries management biologist Shane Bush said.

Holy Mackerel....I've fished Tannycomo dozens and dozens of times. I lived only a few miles from it.

I've seen some big Brown's come out of there (a couple in the 20 lb range) but nothing even close to this monster.

Tannycomo is a great rainbow trout lake as well. The water temp rarely gets above 60 degrees. The lake is fed by Table Rock Lake and the TRL damn. When water is released from Table Rock its from 180 feet. Damn cold water which is great for Trout. 

Here is a great photo of Tannycomo....The dam is what creates great fishing in Tannycomo....That is Table Rock Lake above the dam. All 875 miles of shoreline. Tannycomo is the lower lake that is much more like a river than a lake.

Doggone, and I used to think that two pounds was a pretty good sized Brown.  All this time, I've been fishing for them in the wrong State.
