This fish was up there with one of the coolest fish captures of my 2016 season! With a good limit in the Livewell I knew I was one bite away from having a giant Lake Champlain bag and putting myself in contention to make the Classic. The conditions got right and I picked up my favorite 9 inch jointed swimbait and within a few casts I hooked my biggest Bass of the day.
Trusting my gut is something I’ve struggled with the past two years but it’s coming back and I’m growing as an Angler everyday. I’ve been lucky to have some amazing teachers over my life and I have @brandonpalaniuk and @oliverngy to thank for this fish after showing me the power of the big swimbait. Thanks heaps fellas🎣👍
