181204 2Dominic Catherine Haygood 1 600x338 - Haygoods perform holiday concert to benefit single mothersOn December 15th at 2:00 PM, Dominic Haygood will take the stage to perform a magical one time only holiday concert on the saxophone and violin to raise money for single mothers in the branson area this holiday season. He will be joined onstage by his sister, world class harpist, Catherine Haygood

“We have created a super modern yet classic feeling repertoire to capture the excitement and warmth you feel at the holiday season, “said Catherine. “We are looking forward to a very large attendance as 100% of the proceeds will be going toward specific needs for our single mothers, we play over 140 shows a year, but this one allows us to bless and love on a lot of people all at once and that makes it so much more special for us.”

Dominic and his wife Heather started their own charity after Heather spent 5 years as a single mother holding down 2 jobs and raising 4 children all on her own. “After Dominic and I married and things settled down a bit, I knew I wanted to devote my time to helping other single mothers get back on their feet. The struggle is very real and at times overwhelming. The goal is to take care of immediate needs. It could be as simple as paying an electric bill or putting new tires on a minivan. Sometimes just a little edge is all people need to get their head and heart above water,” said Heather.

Join the Haygoods at the Clay Cooper Theatre on December 15th at 2:00 PM with preshow guests “Dance Branson,” special holiday eats by “Mr Bs,” a silent auction, and an unforgettable concert experience by Branson superstars, “The Haygoods.” Tickets are $14.00 and all proceeds will be used to support single mothers in the Branson area.

Fishing Report- Lake Taneycomo

These windy days are good for throwing heavier lures, lures that fly through wind and are reeled back pretty fast so that the wind doesn’t affect the action.  Spoons, spinners, hard baits like crank and stick baits are examples.  Plus the trout tend to be more active and more aggressive when it’s very windy.

Generation helps.  The patterns have been unpredictable lately.  If the dam does  run water, it’s usually a half  to one unit, but only for a few hours.  But with colder days and nights ahead, that might be bumped up.  Plus the restriction has been lifted for running water because Table Rock Lake has turned over, but it seems that one turbine at the plant is down for maintenance.  We’ll see what happens with generation in the days to come.

Minnows and night crawlers are the hot live baits right now.  Live minnows are always good in winter months.  We’ve had a good crop of pond weed along our bank with schools of small forage fish moving in and out of this cover.  But before long, the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers will open the turbines with heavy current,  washing all of it out.  You see, most of it is dead already, and it will easily be taken out and down lake.  This removes all the cover for these small fish, pushing them out where trout and other fish will feed on them.

 

Marabou jigs, spoons and small stock baits will be the ticket for much of the winter months, too.  Trolling, casting — whatever you want to do — should be a way to catch a bunch of good trout.

For the rest of my report, I can point to my last fishing report on November 20th.  Scuds are still the best fly to catch fish almost anywhere on the lake but especially from Short Creek up.  Tan, gray and brown are the best colors.
