Well it’s officially May..and I think everyone is looking forward to Summer.¬† We completed the last of our Spring tournaments on Friday. WE had 45 Purple Heart recipeints sign up, for our annual fishing Tournament.¬† There are sooo many people that work hard to make this day possible… and I want to Thank everyone that helped !!!¬† As for the Tournament itself,¬† I’m reminded every year, what a privelage it is to host these guys.¬† Our oldest was 96 this year, one of 3 WWII vets that we had. Our Youngest included the only “Known” couple, in which both of them have a Purple Heart.¬† A lot of great stories told, some nice fish caught !!!! We already have next years event on the calendar ..if you’d like to be a part of it .. send me a note.
As for Trout Fishing on Lake Taneycomo right now.. I would say it’s back into a normal pattern. After a spring where at times ..about the only place you could catch a fish was the creeks… WE’re seeing the trout population back in norma patterns, in the normal areas.
Thomas Gold/Red Spoon is still our best selling lure…¬†¬† Jigs change with the light, and water (which is getting VERY clear) Typical Olive / Ginger and Brown/ Black. I actually caught a nice 4lb Bow Wednesday on a White Jig.
Trout magnets, Candy Corn and Pink are our best two.¬† In Gulp our Bubble Gum Gulp Worms are still doing well.. as well as the normal four colors.. Orange Chartruese Pink and White
Remember … to check your boat when you get it out for the first time this year. Make sure your safety equipment is still good..and batteries are still hot.
Have a GREAT day on the Lake
