Today started out with us leaving around 7.  Plan was to go north and hit up a few lakes in succession and make a day of it.

 

Stop one was Salt Fork lake.  Been there a few times but no luck thus far.  Started up by the dam and fished for an hour or so with no luck.  Along rt 22 on the way to the other lakes were some bits the road cut off from the main lake and decided to try fishing there.

 

Didn't have any luck for the first half hour or so until I felt luke my hook was caught in some grass.  So I cranked down and tried reeling it in.  Then it wouldn't budge.  So I started to pull on the rod horizontally to dislodge the hook and I felt the rod shake - I had hooked a fish!

 

So I kept reeling and finally got it close to shore and when I first saw it, I yelled to my brother, "Holy ****, its huge!!!"  It wasn't until I got it on land I saw how truly massive it was!

 

I was shaking with excitement and adrenaline.  I guesstimate it was a 4-5lb fish.  I could d**n near put my fist inside its mouth.  Our first ever lunker!!!

 

Not 30min later, my brother landed his.  So we decided to break for lunch at Bdubs.

 

Went back after lunch for an hour with no luck and went on to Piedmont dam to try for some smallies.

 

No luck.  Bit too windy and we were tired, so we called it a day after about an hour there and went home.

Awesome job, persistence pays. Those weight estimates look dead on to me

Great job guys! 

 

I agree you're right in the ballpark on both your fish's weights.

Now that you have broken the ice it's time to buy a scale. Congrats on your PB's.

And took @A-Jay advice and was using some Trilene XT in 14lb.  Cast well and brought in that big fish.

14 lb mono is hard to break unless you are in slop or pads. It does look like you were near some pads but mono is very abrasion resistant
