The One that Did NOT get away!

The One that Did NOT get away!
Large Small Mouth

ColumbusĀ MI



I was fishing on Lake St Clair early Sunday morning with my 3 kids when I hooked into a Large mouth bass. The rod then shattered into several pieces and my son had an issue getting the net into the water and we lost that fish. I was only 15 minutes later I caught this 24" small mouth and when I brought it up to the side of the boat my son did an incredible net job and we got it into the boat. I told the kids that is how hard work pays off and not to get frustrated. They also caught bass in the 19-20 inch range that day.
