Found a decent one today on a frog out there. Did not get many frog bites but when you get one like this it makes up for it. Notice its just skin hooked almost too? I did everything possible to lose this fish I think. She blasted the frog and literally jumped 2' out of the water twice. I figured I was gonna lose her but somehow I managed to get her in the boat.

Funny story about that fish is that just a bit earlier something had blown up on a group of ducklings in the same area I caught her in. It happened 5-10 minutes before I caught her. Kinda wonder if it was not this fish.

All in all it was a great day. TONS of bites out there on other baits besides the frog and these fish pull like freight trains right now as well. Doubt I caught anything deeper than 3'. Best 5 would have made a nice limit on the scales. Had another pig literally come off at the boat after I flipped up into some bushes and she bit. Would have liked to have had that one too.

Weather was perfect, left them biting and had a blast.

It was a pretty healthy fish but it does have a big head. I thought she was bigger when I first saw her eat the frog. She was 23" long. I suck at taking pictures solo. roflmao

I was out today and saw a young duck about the size of your hand all by itself. It went underwater and I never saw it resurface. Dad and I thought he committed suicide or something, it was wild.

How long was that fish? Nice report. I caught a few shallow on Cedar Creek last Sat. that pulled pretty hard for the size. Mostly just under keeper size. Not on a frog though.

And a little guy to hold the fish for you. Haha. You're a large dude.

I set my phone on reverse and set a timer. Then lean it up and back towards the boat. Does a good job, but I have the Mark Perry problem. I am a big dude with huge hands. It makes a big fish look smaller.
