Fished last night in great conditions (but man it was cooooold!!!) out on the lake. Managed to snag a big old bat in my line to start with - arrrgh, i hate them things

After several misses I hook up with this Jr. freight train of a fish which dumped some drag before we got it to the net


My 1st ever Wiper - another species off the list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice catching Capt :)
Either cuff em & stuff em - or - catch em and cook em! In my world, "catch & release" is an escape!

Nice Catch Capt. Hit hard? I know a friend that had treble hooks ripped out of husky jerks.

I caught it on a swim bait (Shadalicious) so no hook ripping out - it did not hit as hard as a pure striper, they hit HARD!

The bat was in the water when the photo was taken
