Region of Catch: Region 1
Length: 20 inches

Lure / Bait used: Lure | 4 inch Chrome/ Black XPS Slim Dog
I bought a guided float fishing trip down the Mississippi from a school auction donated by Dan Ellis. Last Sunday was the fish time we could get out on the Mississippi river because the water had been so high. We fished South of Montecello. The fish came from a shallow rock cut, I casted the XPS chrome black Slim Dog right next to shore. With two walks of the dog, the big smally slupped the bait into its mouth and the battle was on. I had been fishing for a 20 inch plus smally for multiple years…it was a great day on the river and a gift to share fishing with another that enjoys it like I do.
