Details:Had the day off Friday so Bob and I headed out for some small mouth action we hoped. Got on Johns pond by 7 am. I know it's late but we had to stop for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. As we were going around the shore a guy showed up ad was loading his boat. He started loudly talking to himself. As he was getting aggravated he started yelling and swearing at himself, hilarious! Both of us were watching good sized bass swimming around the flats but none were interested in our tackle. As we were trying to figure out what they were interested in, Bob hooked on to something big. Before he had the chance, it yanked his pole and snapped his line. As we made our way around the shore, the boat was facing me away from shore and with all of the info I have read on the site I looked at the fish finder and saw a ten foot depth. I looked at the lake depth map and figured the bottom drops off about 20 feet out from the boat. I grabbed my spinning rod and put heavy spinner bait on it. Heaved it out and counted to three to allow the sink. Started to slowly retrieve, WHAM! As I have read over and over CROSS THE EYES ON HOOK SET. So I did. I told Bob this was going to be a good fish. Is it rose I expected a smallie to shoot out of the water and I was ready. It broke the water, “Bob, Get the net! It was a big Largemouth. I fought the fish as carefully as I could as to not screw this up (I have done that before). We got it in the net (Barely fit). We weighted it in at 6lbs 4 oz. In the past I have only caught 4.5 lb fish so you all can understand my excitement. As for the rest of the day, we both landed 8 or so fish. All ranging 2 to 4 lbs. I would say it was a huge success. A special thanks to Jay at Boag Hog bait!!
