Fooling a 27-Pound Brown Trout

October 27, 2005 By: Marshall Cutchin

The best thing about this story is that Rick Osborn watched another angler give up in frustration before he then made more than a dozen casts and hooked and landed this monster brown — perhaps a new 4-lb. tippet record — on Missouri’s Lake Taneycomo. As we’ve noted before, just because a fishery is crowded doesn’t mean the fishing can’t be spectacular. Steve Brigman in the Springfield News-Leader.
