Monster Smallie!

Monster Smallie!
21 1/2" Smallmouth Bass


Marcus Gersch

Bridgeport New York

I was fishing off my dock on Oneida Lake with a 1" tiny shad panfish assasin with a 1/32 oz jighead. I was slowly working it across the top of weed beds when my line went taught and the water exploded! I set the hook and several jumps later I finally got'em up next to the dock where I could lip'em. My dad took a few pictures of my trophy smally and I was able to revive and release unharmed.
