'07 retrospective - let's see 'em

Recommended Posts

a few nice fish from '07 as the year comes to an end.

im glad i took pictures of a few of the big ones because it has gotten TOUGH lately... i cant remember the last 6lber i had on the line. its nice to have a few pictures to remember the year

(every one of these fish went back in the drink and swam happily away- well the last toho one was gill hooked - blood dripping off the tail, so i dont know about him, but he got some rejuvinade on the wound before he went back in).

toho - january/february = a good day

nice job warmer. what was your biggest this year? when i get home i will post some of my fish from this year. looks like you got a nice spot on toho. i finished 7th in my club for the year. i fished alone for 7 events because my partner had a lot of health problems. all in all it wasn't a bad year, but like you i am jonesing for next year.

thanks!

yeah boca, toho can be awefully nice to you one day and not the next though... my best bag out of toho this year was mid 19's. i find i actually do better when the bite is tougher.

i caught 3 fish the day before the extrem3 one man that were better than 5, in different spots so i didnt beat anything up, and went back the next day and couldnt bet better than 11lbs.

what club you fish? you on the k chain a lot?

the biggest fish i have pictured was on eagle lake at 8.8... i caught a 10 during spawn.

AWESOME catches and pix guys, and great idea for a thread.  if you click on the photobucket link in my signature line you can see some of the ones i was fortunate enough to catch - all from '07.  here's hoping for a great '08 for y'all! :)

i think it is safe to say that hawg caller is dialed in to the big'uns. those fish in your gallery are HUGE! great job.

i had a good month on lake jesse...

i was working the wh chain because i expected the extreme series classic to be there, then we hit low water...

i caught the one in the picture on a green pumpkin trick worm in thick hydrilla... the next week i caught an 8 and 3 over 4 on a spro chug 35/baby bass (looks like they discontinued them), then they sprayed... and i caught a filmy sickly looking 7+ on that yosuri shallow crank that i caught that little bass on in that last picture...

if you are going to wh chain, i think hartridge has been better than jesse...

We had a good year in Hartridge.  With the water so low it is the easiest to launch and with the new ramp and parking it is nice.  This was Josh's PB just off the Hartridge ramp.
