Awesome Fish Day Share0 Tweet Email Share on Facebook.Share on Twitter.Share on Google+ Scott Deffenbaugh Quinton VA Species: Smallmouth Bass Date Caught: 04/09/2011 Kept / Released: Released Region of Catch: Region 2 Length: 23 inches Weight: 6 Lure / Bait used: Lure | blue 1/4 oz Tube bait Two days of fishing for smallmouth with Cousin Perch. First day high wind and heavy rain shut us down–two fish all day. Second day, river is stained. My buddy Troy caught one 20″ plus first thing. Late morning bite improved. Caught and released four 18-19″ fish. Then, a cast to shoreline rocks resulted in a good hit. Drag starts screaming and my St. Croix 6’6″ bent way down. Worked her toward the boat and saw her; we knew it was a very big fish. She took off on a big run. got her to the boat again and tried to net her. She ran again. Once more to the boat and Perch scooped her up. I think I heard a rebel yell come from the boat. Good times.
