1. 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.

  3. 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.

  8. First Non-Largemouth! What is it? White Perch? White Bass? Also the first catch on my Pflueger President (that only took 2 months πŸ˜…) 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 πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦βœ”οΈ

      Doesn't looked like a white bass, like we have! I'm guessing it's a white perch! 🎣🐟
    4. Tod Fisher 0
      Right on lol
    5. Brooklyn Pytlik 0
      Yeah! Just leafed through the free DGIF fishing booklet and it lists Kerr as top waterways for white bass. But after reading their descriptions of the 2 fish, I'm ...more definitely leaning back to perch too. Either way, apparently white perch is really a bass and is familiar to white and striped bass, so I think it's okay either way! Lol
    6. Tod Fisher 0
      it looks like there ARE white bass in Kerr according to vadgif. so I was wrong bout that
    7. Tod Fisher 0
      well im no expert but still looks like a perch to me. all the white bass I've ever caught were a little thicker through the body, a littler more silver to yellowish ...more and faint stripes.
    8. Brooklyn Pytlik 0
      Hey Tod, I changed the photo to show another angle of the fish. Mind seeing if it still looks like a perch to you?
    9. Brooklyn Pytlik 0
      That's what I thought but then the husband looked up a bunch of stuff online about comparisons between the 2, so then I figured it was a bass. I'll switch ...more the label back to perch πŸ‘ Glad someone finally helped ID it though!! πŸ˜…πŸ‘
    10. Tod Fisher 0
      thats a nice size one πŸ‘ good eatin too

  9. 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 πŸŽ£πŸš£β€β™€οΈ 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. πŸ‘

  10. 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 πŸ‘ Let's see if we can catch some fish this week πŸŽ£πŸš£β€β™€οΈ
