  1. Congratulations to Bill Babler for landing the NEW Missouri state record brown trout today! 40.4lbs - 41.25" long - 28" girth.

    babler record.jpg Bill a fishing guide on Taneycomo for over 20 years, caught it on a Berkley pink Powerworm just below the mouth of Fall Creek, upper Lake Taneycomo. He was using 6x tippet, or less than 4-pound line.

    The current world record is 42lbs 1oz.

    Oh yea, Jimmy Lawrence will hate me for a day or two while we wrestle this big beast around getting it molded. Glad to see it's a nice shaped fish.
