Took my oldest son out with me today and after he has been out with me in the past I have given him the responsibilities of manning the poles and setting them out while I control the boat. He took this one all by himself from start to finish and has possibly set the new Jr Angler Record for Cedar Creek Lake. We took it to the Fish Hatchery in Athens today and had it certified by a TPWD Biologist and it came out at 28 1/2 inches and 10.84 lbs. The previous record was 8.89 lbs and 28 inches. We will keep you posted on the final news after they do all of their due diligence in officially certifying it as the new Jr Angler lake record. Way to go Son!
that is a beast. I keep telling myself that if and when i catch a DD hybrid I am going to mount it. This one would end up on the wall in my office. 10 lbs is a trophy hybrid. Great to hear that your son caught it. Several of us have fished for years and never eclipsed the 10 lb mark..
