1. My new PB smallie that I caught last week. I spooked this giant in between two docks and came back a half hour later and drifted into the general area where she ...more was. I started fancasting and about five casts in I got her. This came only ten minutes after tying my old PB for the third time in less than a month! She was well worth the wait.

    5. Tim Steinmetz
      Unfortunately it's upstream of the nuke plant, Morris. That is why this smallmouth is somewhat substandard.
    6. Morris Campbell

    1. thanks though, it crushed a 9in swimbait right next to the boat at the end of the retrieve, pretty awesome sight.
    2. it's from last year this time, still looking for my first one this year...can't seem to get out at the right time, between the weather and the spotty run ...more this season. fingers crossed on this sunday!

    6. This striper catch and fluke are from last year, i was just using them to make a cool pic. hopefully get out this weekend for an even bigger one! My biggest is ...more 47 inches but it was spawned out and probably weighed about the same as this one, this one was only 40 inches. Guys over estimate the weights a lot haha

    2. Brad Devore
      Are they very tasty
    3. Morris Campbell
    4. George Lay
      Do they taste like a bluegill?
    5. Morris Campbell
      Around 3 lbs. A 1.5 lb. Oscar fights like a 2-3 smallmouth. Very scrappy!
    6. Kenneth Olivo
      Around how big do these guys get Morris?
    7. A Reid
      These were in the let shops in the 70s
    8. I wouldn't complain about cleaning that pile!!! :)
    9. Ronald Howell
      I am glad that you are catching some of these and
      eliminating them from competing with the bass for spawning areas and food.
    10. Morris Campbell
      @Shawn there are plenty of bass and other native fish in the Everglades too. They had a strike on every cast pretty much all day.
    11. Morris Campbell
      Thanks guys. Yes they are an invasive species Shawn. They strike and fight like a smallmouth bass. My customers took them home in two coolers . No cleaning other ...more than my boat Pete..:)
    12. Pete Garm
      Im not to sure what those are but you have your work cut out filleting! Nice man
    13. Melissa Norris

    14. Kenneth Olivo
      you always catch something nice! I gotta get out there the waters must be so rich with fish deff gonna plan a trip to Florida I'm itching for a peacock lolol ...more nice fish morris!
    15. Shawn Gearinger
      Morris aren't those an invasive species? Are they crowding out other native species?
    16. Mitch Roth
      The road runner will catch anything, hands down the most versatile lure for catching a variety.
    17. Morris Campbell
      Tim they ate every plastic tail i had on the boat. Any color, twister, paddle, didn't matter! Gulp, powerbait, strikeking crappie grub. Had 9 bass , two catfish ...more and two big bowfin all on the roadrunners.
    18. Tim Steinmetz
      That's crazy! You catch some weird stuff, Morris!

Hello! My name is Tim. I live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I fish for anything that bites on both ice and open water. I especially enjoy ...more picking apart waterways in search of trophy fish. I would rather catch one big fish than 100 little fish. Some of my favorite species include walleye, pike, smallmouth bass, and lake trout. I enjoy documenting my fishing adventures through photographs and videos. I graduated from Michigan Technological University in 2015. I currently work full-time as a mechanical engineer. Aside from fishing, I also enjoy hunting, skiing, photography, and researching advanced topics of theoretical physics, such as the quest for a unified field theory.
