A big-un from last Sunday

Recommended Posts

Made a deal with the wife to get in a few hours of fishing Sunday. We headed up to our cottage in northern Illinois but first stopped at the mall.

Hit BPS of course. Then we went to lunch and I had to promise not to uncover the boat. I was Okay with that as I had a hunch there would be some good fish on the large spawning flat behind the house.

Put on my wading boots and headed in. Got a few chunks on a swimbait and saw some nice beds but nothing on them. Went inside to watch the Cubs lose again and went back out this time armed with the last Ragetail Lizard we got from Big-O on the roadtrip. Dipped in JJ's and started to cast where I remembered the beds. 3rd cast felt a tick and didn't hesitate and hit her. 3 feet of water toe to toe with a pig.

Got her in and yelled to the wife to get the camera. After a few quick shots and measurements back she went. Using length/girth formula

19.0 X 22.0 approx she was 6.6 lb. I honestly don't think she was that big but a good one any way. Nice thing is, in a few days her belly will be back to normal. Not mine though.

July is Prime Time for froggin' in the slop. We'll definitely have to do some of that.

Not this time. 1/16 oz. Charlie Brewer Pro Spider head, EWG 3/0 hook.

Too much gunk on bottom for Shakey Head.
