January fishing on Lake Taneycomo

January 25th, 2014 by Lamar Patton

We’ve seen some good fish already this winter. Makes you wonder if we won’t see another Missouri State record in February.. I hope we do.¬† Fishing this week was still great. January always offers weather challenges..but for those that have bundled up and made their plans, they’ve been rewarded with some good fish.¬† Jig fishing has remained good.. WE always do good this time of year on Crank Baits.. Your Rapalas, your Rebel Craws and your Trout Magnet Cranks.¬† Water has been running quite a bit, so cranks or maribou jigs or spoon/spinners have been doing great.¬† When wind permits our Orange/Chartruse Trout Magnet, or the light Pink under a float has done well..but again you need calm winds for this to work the best, otherwise you can just vertical them deeper with out a float.

Crappie are coming in well on Table Rock Lake as well as others… been having¬† to get out early to catch it calm.¬† Scotty’s has one of the most convienent and well stocked live bait assortments in Branson, MO¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† We’ve got our Minnows, Night Crawlers, Wax Worms that you can use for Lake Taneycomo Trout, or Bull Shoals Walleye or Crappie as well as¬† Table Rock Lake Bass, Crappie and catfish

Make sure you make your plans now … don’t stay inside and fret the cold.. get out and enjoy the lakes .. You’ll live longer.. lol

Whatever you do..bundle up.. make sure¬† you have adequate supplies.. Hand Warmers.. Gas .. Hot batteries.. it’s sometimes difficult in January to find other boaters on the water to help Be Prepared


Have a Great day on the lake
