Impressive bass and a beautiful brown

 Say hello to my little friends! 

LMB: Weighed in at 4.8 pounds @ 19".  It was caught trolling 25 feet down.  Put up an amazing fight.  Was taking plenty of line out.  Def a solid catch!
Brown: 4.5 pounds @ 20".  It took a long time to reel this guy in.  It was truly a beautiful brown.  It felt so good being able to release it back into the water and see it swim off. Catch and release is so important. This brown will def be almost an 8 pounder by next season.  It was caught 20 feet down trolling.  August is always good for some nice browns, you just have to put the time in. 

Stockies: Lots of stockie browns today, one had some healed bite marks. 

HUGE pickerel caught by a fellow angler, I was lucky enough to witness and take a picture for him.

Bite marks... A big laker tried to make this guy lunch probably!

Lots of bass

Gleneida TR---Lots of bass action.  Got them on swimbaits, LC pointers and when trolling for trout.  I think all the bass action on my trolling spoons really dulled the hooks.  I had a nice reservoir brown on and the hook ended up pulling out.  I was able to get a good look at it though so all is not lost!  Looked in the range of 4-5 pounds.  Picked up a few cookie cutter 12" stockie browns and a nice 18" laker.  Enjoy the pics.

TR-One that got away

 I caught a few little fat stockie browns, a 12" perch, and I swear I may of had a record LMB on.  This thing was massive, the spoon pulled out right at the boat.  Could have been a 10 pound bass.  Hit it 20 feet down.  Def one of the biggest bass I've seen.  I couldn't believe the size of this thing.  Holy smokes, I wish I could have netted it!  My stupid reel locked up and when the fish went to run, it ended up pulling the hook out right at the boat.  Fought pretty hard, I thought I had a big brown on because of the amount of line it kept taking!
