Got out for about an hour to check out a new rod & reel and it turned
out pretty good . First few casts with a shallow crank bait I hooked up
with a beautiful smallie looked to be about 17" I got it to within a few
feet from shore and she jumped and spit the hook.A guy had just brought
his boat down to launch and was watching and ended up catching my crank bait in his chest :oops: .SoI moved to let him launch and as soon
as I got back there first cast produced a solid 18"smallie 8) .I caught
2 more 1, 16 and 1,13" but it was a good way to break in the new set up.
Ya gotta love when the water on the Fox is high ,every time we have
had these conditions the smalies seem to turn on :D
