This has been a good while back, March 14, 2020 to be exact, but we were fishing one of our springtime honey holes. It was a typical cool and dreary early spring morning, and the fish weren’t biting very well. When I tried to skip my chatterbait under an over hanging tree my reel swarmed. I pulled my rod tip up to allow some line to go out to remove some of the backlash and the water boiled where my lure had landed, I ignored the birds nest and engaged my reel and set the hook hard! I knew immediately that it was large but I didn’t realize that it was my personal best at the time weighing in at 5.64#. My Dickies jacket kept me warm and dry that day.
