No giant, but one of my most exhilarating figure-eight fish ever. I'd been working pounders without luck for a day and a half when I saw him following. He stayed hot on the lure through several fast turns of the eight but wouldn't eat. Heart racing, I paused the bait on the outside of the next turn. Sure enough, he smoked it!
Seeing these beasts hunt closeup will never get old. Thanks to my friends @vermilionguide15 for putting me on the fish and @mavrikfishing for the net job. I love when "couple more spots" pays off. #catchandrelease #icriedalittle
