Big One Got Away

Recommended Posts

So @duckydoty and I fished the last 30 minutes of the day today. Boated above the dock a ways throwing 1/16 oz jigs, I spotted who we think was Frankie just off the boat cruising slowly along... I got 2 tries at him and DD once. He ignored our offerings. 

Ten minutes later and 100 yards up lake, a huge brown flashed off the boat about 15 feet. Was it Frankie following us or another monster brown??  We threw and both of us got hit but no hookups.  We both stomped our feet... exciting!!

kicker... we both were using 2 pound line.

Tell him to hang around there for ten more days. I could use him for the Boswell. ^_^

Never mind found it.  We're planning to come down soon and didn't want to get in the way of the jerseys..:D

Just avoid Fall Creek down to Short Creek and the water treatment boat ramp and you should be OK. Those areas get absolutely pounded! There's way too much area with plenty of fish to be fighting all that mess!
