1. 5 lb. Northern Pike with a white 2" soft powerbait

  2. 2 lb. 8 oz. Smallmouth Bass with a soft white 2" curly powerbait

  3. Golden rapala knockoff, trolling. Thought I was caught in the weeds, but he hit it and dove into the weeds. When I went back over where I thought I was snagged, ...more he ran and I knew it was a big fish. He was barely hooked through a gill flap. He must have tried to swallow the lure and missed it.
