Branson Trip

Recommended Posts

I am taking a trip to Branson for a family reunion.  I have "permission" to have a day all to myself fishing.  I was wondering if any of you would be interested in helping a fellow angler out and allow me to tag along with you on a fishing trip during one of the days between March 11-13.  Ill pay all the gas and bait (if you use any).  No this is not a scam, though I guess a man scamming people might say that. I just can't afford a guided trip, and would like to tag along.  If you are going during those dates send me a message and I will supply my phone number and we can discuss further.  Thank you for reading.

I'm a little too far north to help with the fishing trip, but in case you can't get someone to volunteer, Lake Taneycomo runs right through Branson and you can easily catch trout from the shoreline there. You can catch bass from the bank at Table Rock also, but the trout in Taney would be more of a sure thing.

Would you mind providing a little more information about the shore fishing, locations, areas, bait, lures, etc....  If possible maybe you can PM me and ill give you my phone number and we can talk.

 

I did some trout fishing in the mountains of New Mexico, but I am no expert on trout.  (or the bass in your are for that matter.

The trout are pretty easy. Light spinning rod, 4-6 pound test, variety of small lures like Little Cleo spoons in 1/8-1/4oz, inline spinners, small jigs under a bobber, or tiny crankbaits. The favorite presentation for most down there is Powerbait eggs or corn on a bottom fishing rig like you would for catfish.

 

I personally haven't done much bank fishing at Table Rock but I know I hear guys that do talk about the areas around Kimberling City and Indian Point being good for it. I'd fish around the boat ramps if I was going to be doing it.

If you don't find someone to take you fishing, you might consider driving an hour to the west to fish Roaring River. Tackle requirements are minimal, and you certainly won't need a guide. I take my family there once or twice a year.

I found a few places where I can rent a jon boat, so i was thinking that I would just do that and spend a day out on a boat. Any ideas locations or fishing spots on TableRock you could recommend?

I know you can rent boats at Big Cedar Lodge, but they're pricey. I've done well fishing in around that cove the resort is in and also Clevinger Hollow, which is the next big cove to the north of Big Cedar Hollow. It's very deep and clear water so be prepared for that.

My wife and I honeymooned at Big Cedar Lodge 26 years ago.  At that time, Big Cedar and rentals on Table Rock were already pretty pricey, but we fished Taneycomo one day in a small rental boat and as I recall, the price was pretty reasonable.  I don't remember the name of the business, but it was a small boat livery on the lake.  We rented the boat and went out with Powerbait and light line set ups and caught a bunch of trout, it really wasn't hard work or difficult to figure out at all.
