I remember when lakes in Texas used to produce fish like that. Maybe if they hadn't killed all the grass at fork, we could still produce giants like that.

Caught on one of Mickey Ellis's glide baits you've got to take out a loan to buy.

I can't imagine what it would feel like when you first pulled a fish like that out of the water.

It's one of those fish that is so damn big it looks fake. Congrats to the guy. . .I can't even imagine what one of those tanks feels like at the end of your line.

Which of his lures is considered a glide bait? I saw the soft lures and hard baits and was confused about which is a glide bait.

From what I can tell it was a prototype bait he calls the 316 Kokanee Glide. Not 100% sure, just going off what I see on social media.
