4 lb, 19" Smallie

Recommended Posts

The weekend was not bad weather wise, it rained on and off, some thunder and lightning accompained with sunny breaks and warm spells. Friday night my neighbour Mark and I decided to cast off of my dock using various methods. I went to my trusty Arbogast Jitterbug in the Frog/White Belly colour and Mark was changing lures so fast I wasn't sure what he had on. After about 30 minutes or see, I hear a small bubble sound and I immediately realize there is something decent on so i set the hook and the battle ensued. The noise was hard to describe, almost like the fish is inhaling the lure and water at the same time. So I reel in and once again it was pitch black and I hollered at Mark to grab the net. The battle was over pretty quick and I was able to hoist the beast on 30# PP up onto the dock. I could see exactly how big it was and thought it was going to be close to the 21" beast I caught a few weeks ago. Having Mark there was a definate help as we got the weight and measurement very quickly and he snapped 2 decent shots that I was able to trim right on the camera for a closer shot.

 

After all was said and down this monster Smallie measured 19" and weighed exactly 4 lbs on the nose. I can't believe this isn't my PB.......... B) for most people it might have been. She was released right away.

Woo! Go Dirk! I`can't believe you're still able to throw topwaters...The water all around feels so cold to the point I didn't think they will hit anything above the water. Anyways, nice job!
