A buddies Step-Son Birthday Present
« on: Jul 25, 2021, 10:26 AM »
Buddy wanted his step-son to get some fishing in for his 18th birthday and get something memorable... He had never fished topwater before, but I set him up with a scum-frog and showed him how to "load" a rod when casting and this is what he gets... The frog landed and he started a twitching retrieve and a huge wake came racing, in and exploded on his frog. He waited till he felt the fish (as instructed), set the hook, and the fight was on. Shore-bound he did a great job worked the fish throw the pads... On the scale, it was even 6lbs, quick pic and she swam away strong... I think more topwater is in his future...

Great way to get a kid “hooked” on fishing.

Holy Toledo . . . that's one helluva fish . . .  especially for his first time top-water fishing.  Kudos!
