Truman Day upper Big River trip. 5/8/18

Being a state employee one of the benefits is getting May 8th off every year for Truman Day.  This year I headed up to the upper Big River and put in at Leadwood Access and paddled my kayak up about 3 miles or so and floated back.  Not many fish caught unfortunately. But one I did catch was this beauty 18” smallmouth. Initially had it hooked on a horny toad in which she came off but hem followed it up with a PB&J Ned which didn’t come undone. Caught another smaller small mouth, a couple small spots and largemouth, a couple green sunfish and this cool looking goggle eye. 

Trips like this will wear a guy out though. Needed to drag the kayak across a couple sand bars where the water was too swift. Gonna be sore tomorrow.
