New Missouri State Record Broken Today

Recommended Posts

Scott Sandusky of Arnold, Missouri catches a new Missouri State Record Brown Trout on Lake Taneycomo near Branson, Missouri.

Fishing out of Lilleys' Landing Resort, he and his buddies just started their fishing weekend, drifting downstream from Lilleys using PowerBait on a drift rig when the big brown struck.

It took Scott over 10 minutes to land his record trout, almost losing it in the trolling motor as well as stretching his 4 pound line to it's limits when it made a run clear across the lake.

Pics and video to follow. Sorry, but the video is slow to edit and load to youtube.

It was caught about 1 pm I think... so much running around I didn't notice the time.

That's a nice fish and you did a good job, Scott. Proof there are big fish in Taney...

My congratulations to Scott! A tremendous brown! I think you will enjoy the attention that you are about to recieve. All of your fishing buddies will be calling you, and your story will be published in several newpapers, plus you will get your picture in the conservationist mag. Congrats again Scott.
