20 inch Smallmouth Bass

Mitch Konrad's 20 inch Smallmouth Bass


Mitch Konrad

Naperville Illinois

First cast after changing lures. I casted out into about 12-15 feet of water. Before the lure hit the bottom the fish was on. I set the hook and it put up a super hard fight. After a while I got it in the boat. It was a 20 inch Smallmouth Bass. After some measurements and pictures it was quickly released.

Next cast. Before the lure even hit the bottom another fish was on. It also gave a hard fight. It was a 19 inch Smallmouth Bass. Which was also quickly released after some pictures.


Two casts two nice Smallmouth Bass.
