Some hot fishing going on aboard the USS Northshore. I got a message from Doug that there were some big fish in the river. I decided to head over there at 7pm. I got a call from Roger asking me if I wanted to do some night fishing in the boat.I told him I would be at the river at 7. Roger got there ahead of me and Doug was there as well. Doug said he lost a monster on his first cast.
We decided to go get the boat and fish the complete opposite end of the lake. I would normally not leave a river with huge fish lurking. The only reason I did was because in the last 10 days, some big fish have come on the boat, all from the same spot. a few 5+ caught on back to back casts and some 4's.The spots been hot and that's where i'm going.
We get there and fish it hard and pick up a few small ones. Moving around a bit letting the spot settle down. We picked up a limit and some throw aways.
Lots of you know the spot I am talking about. If you know it, you know it. No need to mention it in responses.
It was not a great night so far but we did catch some fish. I cast a jig out at a very specific spot. It felt as if I was snagged up. I then feel it moving but felt small. It felt as if I had a small bass that was tangled up in a rope. It finally felt ok and it was not hung up. I then realized it was something big. I yelled to Roger to get the net and its big. It came to the surface and made a violent smash.I get her to the boat and Roger nets her. This thing was gorged to the max. We weighed it up on two scales and it was 7 lbs even.
I make fish look so small, look at the picture of Roger holding it. Just for the doubters who will say its 4 lbs.
Not the greatest cell phone pics being it was 11:30 at night.
That's awesome, love the gut on the fish... I know what she's been eating to get that big! The fish in that lake are going to routinely produce some 5 plus pounders now that the new bait fish coming in.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
