News-leader.com reported first and they wrote: “Neosho angler Paul Crews is on his way to smashing Missouri’s brown trout record. On Saturday, he pulled in a 34-pound, 10-ounce brown on 4-pound test line after a 20-minute fight that took him back and forth across Lake Taneycomo near Branson. During the fight, the big fish swam beneath several docks along the edge of the lake without snagging anything and breaking the line. The fish was weighed alive at Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery, and once it’s officially confirmed, it will easily break the current Missouri record — a 28-pounder also caught at Lake Taneycomo in 2009. Crews was using a spinning reel to cast a sculpin-colored jig up close to the bank in extremely high winds.”
