Beautiful Day Fishing at the Dam

This morning I was on the water by 7:30. My first stop was a hole along the bank that had a nice smallmouth hanging around. (Gotta love the polarized lenses!) I worked that big dude for and hour and a half. The third time he hit my worm, I was able to land him before he tangled me up in a nearby log.

I got a nice picture that I'll post somewhere later. He went back in like the others before him. Now I have fisher's regret.

I measured him at 17 in long and about 10.5 in girth. Came home and ran the measurements through a calculator, on Rodworks. That would put his weight close to 3 lbs. My biggest freshwater fish yet.

Man, he would have tasted good!
