Guess who's on the board! Yes I pretty much emptied out my entire tackle box to catch this one as you can see by the pile of lures to the lower left of the photo. Went 4 straight hours without one single bite while watching Willy Mac pull out white perch left and right on worms. It was hard to resist the urge not to join him but I knew I was after a much bigger fish at the risk of going home skunked. I was just about to pack it in when I finally hooked this baby on a Yearling Baitball Rattlebait close by launching docs. After a brief fight and victory celebration I released him. This was one of my more expensive lures but the experience of the catch was priceless. What a great catch.
