Biggest of the year so far

Recommended Posts

Got out today on Canadian Thanksgiving Monday.  Very cold morning at -2C (28F) when we launched, but it warmed up nicely throughout the day.  The day was a grind overall, but landed a dozen good fish including this giant. My biggest  so far this season at 7 1/4

I want to hear the story behind this fish!

Got her in about 28 feet of water on a rock ledge that drops into 40 or so feet.  Casting a swimbait on a 7'6M rod and 15lbs fluoro.  She ate about half way back and you know when you set the hook its a good one.  Only jumped once but dogged pretty good.  You dont realize until they're in the net, how big they are.

Definitely not the drop shot with 6lb fluoro I stereotyped the fish being caught with!

Wow.  Did I saw Wow?  For all intent and purposes, Wow.  That's special, and to be caught on a black Jitterbug in 60 feet of water.....it's even more impressive.  Happy Thanksgiving !!

Awesome. So if that is your biggest of the year, I gotta ask, what the heck is your PB smallie?

Congratulations!
