What a day!

What a day!

Wyatt Baumler

Syracuse New York/ Region 1

Went fishing with my brother a day after a big rain storm and the fish were hitting real good. Cought a 20in smallmouth on my first two cast and couple cast later my clackin' rap got thumped hard and I set the hook on this largemouth. I knew it is was something different because he dident coming flying out of the water like all the previous smallies. Once my brother netted it, I knew it was the biggest largemouth I've ever cought. We got so many nice bass that day, but this was the only largemouth. I even cought a 20in walleye later that night, all my fish were cought on Rapala lipless crankbaits. Great day I'll never forget.
