Big Fish Story II This Time Taneycomo!

Quote:
Vic Eldrid and his friends were drifting just above Short Creek about noon today when something struck his minnow/Gulp white egg combo. It was big. The 3 guys in one of our jon boats had a time trying to get the big fish secure, tossing the one and only net from one end of the boat to the other. But they got it in somehow. Getting into the small livewell was a chore too... and I had a harder time getting it out! It's a 23.5 x 34.5 inch brown weighing 20.56 pounds. They said it would have weighed more if it hadn't coughed up a half digested rainbows just before they netted it.
It's in a live tank reviving. If it makes it, it will be released.

I have seen some pretty big rainbows up in the creek, but nothing this big. I wouldn't doubt one bit that it was up there looking for a meal.
The Short Creek area, or just above was where a big Brown Trout that took the $1200 prize for a legal Brown in the Vince Elfrink Tournament was caught. That one was something like 5 1/2 pounds.
Wouldn't be surprised if there is a 20' Gator hanging around that area next weekend!
