Out Fishing Dad
Best fish of the day - 14.5" slab

Noah Ransom

Carlisle IA



I planned a fishing trip with my son, Noah, to a quarry we suspect has some trophy bass. A couple of hours in he decided to try and see if he could hook up with any crappie with his new micro-light. By the end of the day he had pulled off a trophy-fish trifecta landing 3 different crappie each over 14 inches with this one being the biggest at just over 14 1/2.

Date Caught: 09/30/2012


Kept / Released: Released

Region of Catch: Region 1

Length: 14.5


Weight:

Lure / Bait used: Lure | Beetle Spin
