May is here .. we’re headed into Summer

May 2nd, 2014 by Lamar Patton

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
