Even without much generation Branson Fishing Guides continue to catch numbers and quality trout on Lake Taneycomo. The best bite has been from Cooper Creek through downtown Branson; fishing guides continue to have success on 1/16oz Zig Jigs around boat docks and other cover early and late. Keeping the jig close to the cover is key to success; most of the bites have been coming as the jig falls so an erratic retrieve allowing the jig to fall multiple times is crucial to drawing strikes. Casting small jerkbaits have been another very good technique for better fish early in the day, Rapala, Lucky Craft and Yo-Zuri lures have all been effective, 1 ˝” – 2” models in realistic finishes have been best for Branson fishing guides. A brown or black Trout Magnet fished below a float has been working as the sun comes up over the hill. The less action you impart on the bait the batter allow current or mind to move the bait around and give it very subtle twitches to draw strikes. Once mid-day arrives most Branson fishing guides will switch to a drift rig and use different combinations of baits to keep the trout biting. Gulp and Power Bait eggs have been one of the best options, mixing color combinations until one is found that the trout can’t resist. Live night crawlers are another option; usually ˝ of a crawler is sufficient to get bit and injecting a small amount of air in the crawler to keep it off the bottom will result in more strikes. Finally, a Branson fishing guide trick for no current days is to use half a night crawler on a weight less hook. Tie a #10 hook on a six foot two pound fluorocarbon leader on a swivel and allow the weight of the hook and swivel to sink the bait. If the bait isn’t sinking add no more than one BB shot to the line to get it to sink. Despite the hot weather and limited generation Branson fishing guides continue to catch numbers and quality on Lake Taneycomo.
