First time's a charm

First time's a charm
19.5-inch Largemouth caught at Lake Lowell

Jordan Rodriguez

Boise Idaho



My maiden voyage to Lake Lowell was a huge success! I tagged along with two buddies after work and we boated 40-plus largemouth in just a few hours. This was the fish of the day, a nearly 20-inch beauty who slammed a drop-shotted plastic worm. It's cold here in Idaho, but we still grow some beautiful bass. What a fish!
