I haven't been out much over the last year and a half as my wife and I are preparing our retirement house for permanent occupation. @tdawg reminded me to check the site again so I thought I'd post the highlight of a very limited fishing season. I was just out cruising the lake in #bos-mon and took some rods just in case. About 1.5 miles from my house in 6-8 feet of water I found a huge school of Smallies suspended over a large flat sand bottom. I hooked the first one with a white whopper plopper #wwp but lost it after a fierce fight. This one took a white rooster tail with a chartreuse blade #wrtcb. The reel broke when I set the hook and I had to hand line her into the boat. She put on quite a show and pulled so hard she cut my finger. But here she is, all 18 inches of her and now she is back in the lake building up for round 2. I have 96 working days left before I retire and can fish full time. You guys will see more posts starting then.
