Little larger than 1 lbs- my second smallmouth. Released the fish right as Game Warden pulled up thinking maybe my license was expired, but took happy pic of them ...more pulling away - license was still good...still no pic of a smallmouth.
I have skunked out so many times this year it's not even funny...if I wasn't a noob I'd be embarrassed but it is hard to fish with 2 loud kiddos banging ...more LEGOS and stuff on the bottom of the boat. Anyway, I figured I'd post this fundraiser I am doing in case any folks out there have a heart for veterans or suicide prevention. I am running 100 miles in January to raise awareness and funds to help American veterans who are suffering from homelessness, substance abuse, depression, PTSD, etc., for the non-profit called Stop Soldier Suicide. If anyone is interested in donating through my (possibly heart-attack-inducing 100 mile run...seriously, what am I thinking?), you can check it out here: https://www.facebook.com/donate/303815341657470/303815351657469/. Oh, and if any of you serious fishermen are interested in helping out an American veteran WHILE fishing, there's actually charities where people just take a vet, senior, or folk with special needs, fishing---here's 10 of them: https://shopkarls.com/blog/fishing-veterans-day/. With God, all things are possible. God bless our veterans.
First Non-Largemouth! What is it? White Perch? White Bass? Also the first catch on my Pflueger President (that only took 2 months 😅) and umbrella rig. Although ...more I hooked one just before this and he bumped the boat and jumped off 🎣 I am better at losing fish than catching them 😂🤦✔️
There were so many large bass jumping around my boat I almost had a heart attack it was beating so painfully! Nabbed this one and then lost the next one right as ...more I got him next to the boat. God is good 🎣🚣♀️ Had a lot of bites from smaller fish but the 360 Search Bait was too big for any of them. I am satisfied with at least one from this vacation. 👍
3 Days On The Kerr Reservoir (VA/NC border), also known as Buggs Island Lake. This is the view of the water behind Buggs Island Bait & Tackle, which also carries ...more hunting equipment. If you were out on the water, you could just pull your boat up to that dock and grab what you need 👍 Let's see if we can catch some fish this week 🎣🚣♀️
