36th Annual Boswell Tournament

Recommended Posts

Forty-seven teams are participating on this year's Boswell Memorial Trout Invitational on Lake Taneycomo.  Some people think they're crazy... but it's been a tradition for the past 36 years.

Mixed results today.  Most caught fish but hardly any of the bags were consistently good.  What I mean by that is a lot of teams had one or two nice rainbows in the 14-16 inch range plus small stockers.  Some had even bigger rainbows but real small rainbows to go with.  There were 2-3 teams with consistently good rainbows and they placed high in the standings.  There was one keeper brown caught (Mazdra - Collins).  

The 1st place team boated all the way down to the lower dam and caught their fish on black rooster tails with a gold spinner.  It was their first trout tournament.  I think one of them said he was a bass fisher and never fished for trout before.

I threw jigs all day up between Fall and Short Creek and caught a pile of them, but none were over 13”. Talk about a dink fest! Luckily dad caught that 1.94 and squeaked us in to 9th place. We ran way down river scouting around yesterday, but I couldn’t figure anything out so we just fished our typical holes. That water is big down that way!

I wouldn’t be opposed to a little nicer weather in two weeks either. It was brutal this morning till around 11:30. :D
