Culvert Giant

Culvert Giant

Mitch Rady

Neenah Wisconsin

Got out of work early and drove straight to my favorite bass spot, a channel system off of lake Winnebago. It is a series of channels that are connected by culverts that make great ambush spots for bass. I always have my poles and tackle in my jeep and go as often as possible. I always catch a couple but they are usually 1/2 to 2 lbs. earlier this spring I lost a huge fish and it haunted me. The thought of it kept and still keeps me coming back. I was using my go to bait, a 5 in blood colored power bait worm wackey rigged with a circle hook. I had been there 20 minutes already and only caught one small one. Impatient and slightly bored I tried something I different. I opened my bail and let the current take my worm in to the culvert pipe. The current pulled carried it for a bit but then stopped. Thinking it was snagged or sitting on bottom I began reeling in the slack and then I felt it. I knew it was heavy but when I saw it come shooting out of the pipe I was ecstatic. After several strong runs I tired him out and dragged him up the gravel shore bank. I could fit my whole fist in his mouth. Released him after getting weight and length and picture.
