      thanks josh. yes Morris. At first I thought it was a large smallmouth. it hit my jerkbait like a freight train. When It never surfaced I was pretty sure it was a ...more drum.

    1. Russ Emanuel 0
      he pulled hard, but did not swim very fast. Still gave my light action ned rig rod a workout.
    2. Brian Quisenberry 0
      Did he put up much of a fight with the low temps?
    3. Josh Sommerville 0

      The Ned rig is not my favorite bait, but it produces fish when nothing else will.
    4. Erich Senft 0
      Yeah the nedding so far for me has been for the hot days so I can at least salvage a few bites/fish. The one that was supper hot for me is that half chartreuse half ...more copper finesse TRD. Nice work !
