I fished a Iowa tourney and almost busted 25lb.. Wish I could have culled the 3.8 and 4.0 w a 5 plus.

I wish guys would stop using penetrating cull tags and picking up 5lb and over fish by them three had huge tears in their lower jaw. It clearly doesnt hurt the fish just like piercing a ear but internet keyboard warriors were quick to whine about my fingers poking thru the existing holes. Everyone is a critic.

Okoboji yes. Traveling shallow. In hindsight two needed fizzed. They floated all day. I ran recirculate and aerate on manual all day and weighed them down. They were very healthy as I checked them a lot but it never occured to me on this deep water lake the big ones could travel that far to eat. They must have come from a mile away to eat from deep water.

I caught them all in a few minute span, 3 in 3 casts in fact one cast with nothing then the 4th and the last a few minutes later.

I wouldnt worry about. The traditional piercing cull tags are fine. Wont hurt the fish. People are just to sensitive these days and need to quit being little girls about stuff. Majoring in the minors.

Nice sack!

Congratulations Jeff on a nice win. Thanks for sharing. I thank it has really helped you to come down here to Lake Fork to practice. That was way to easy.
