I've fished this river my whole life. It's literally where I caught my first fish. I've fished here hundreds of times. It's a small river and in 33 years, the largest fish I've ever seen or pulled out of here was 13". Well today I broke that PB, twice! First with a beautiful golden colored 13.5" (2nd 2 pics), then with this hawg taped out at 14.5"! An absolute beast for this tiny little river.
And the best part of all, I was fishing with my dad. The man who introduced me to fishing. And probably the one responsible for this crazy obsession that I now have. What an awesome trip home and a day I will never forget.
