OK, so you go fishing for Aspius in a Rhein River around Hamm am, Germany using a 7 ft rod, Shimano Stradic CI4 4000 spinning reel, and 15 lb Power Pro line with a fluoro leader and a little spinner jig. And then this monster 88 lb, 6 ft long Wels catfish takes the bait. What to do? Well, after about an hour Markus Schader landed this bad boy! This definitely deserves our biggest “Well Done”!
Craig Dickason sends us this picture of a BIG barramundi caught New Year’s day in the Fitzroy River near Derby, North Western Australia using a very light 6 kg line. Craig say that was “lots of fun.” Ya think?
We always enjoy pictures from our friend Gunther Van Ginneken and this issue is no exception. Gunther says the temperatures have been mild at around 70 degrees and fishing good in Belgium. We’d say this pictures proves Gunther is right!
Man oh man, every time we get a picture like Dwight Hottle’s here we get jealous. This fantastic 9 lb. 2 oz largemouth was Dwight’s personal best and came out of a farm pond in Georgia last week. Congratulations, Dwight!
Well, this fish is obviously larger than a bass. Maybe that’s why George Lapiana has such a big smile on his face. Son Mike did a great job guiding and this nice steelie was obliging as well. Great hat, too!
Even in early spring Nick Lendy shows us he can catch some nice largemouth’s. These two were caught the day after a BassMaster Weekend Series tournament on Kentucky Lake. Nick finished 10th the day before. Well done, Nick!
Please, folks, send us some of your pictures. We’re not after trophies, just pictures of fish you’re proud of. It’s easy. Just attached them to an email and send them to us at [email protected] and we’ll do our best to get them in the newsletter. Send them in to us!
