    Default FAT and OLD

    I am FAT and she is OLD , but none the less we met up and danced a bit . On a 5 foot ultralight and 5 foot of line off the tip it went pretty fast to each other stepping on the other ones toes !
    It was raining and I went down to my buds covered dock . The bite was a bit tricky ,but I managed around 50 in an hour plus a few .
    One fish approaching 17 inches sure looked like an OLD specimen , the ole girl had plenty of fight in her though even all spawned out ,and took the jig deep in the roof of the mouth and in the end I got to hold her for a few photos before I gently released her .
    I set the time delay on the phone and got a pretty good one of her ....
    suitable for framing you might ask ? I would say not bad for a beginner ....
    she was residing away from the main numbers of fish there and she was the ONLY bite i got in that area . Around 5 foot of water about 4.5 foot down and there she was . Sure goes fast and furious with such light tackle in such tight quarters . I dont suggest you try it unless every little thing is just right on your tackle .
    MY FIRST 2 JIGS both went away first drops with large fish when I got there yesterday
    a bit tight on the drag on the second fish and a worn spot on my mono on the first one .
    such is how it goes sometimes and lesson learned i suppose maybe kinda
    KABOOM is for sure the word
    wonder how OLD she is ....? she looks ancient ....

    sometimes i wish i could have found one like her in the actual prime of her life ,i bet she was a real toad a year or so ago .
    she had the frame to be really heavy if she was filled out like a prime fish .

    I could say soooo much, but it is a family friendly forum, and I do respect the elderly.

    Yep, I remember ketchin one like her in a creek years ago. Yes was long and lean, so thin she had one side. But a great big ole head. Not sure I did her any favors letting her go, but man it would have been hard getting a meal off that bag of bones. It was a fun dance, but alas it didn't last long, she just didn't have the energy.
    Nice fish brother and great story...

    Still one dinner plate of a crappie. Glad you got her back to hopefully make some more copies! Nothing like using U/L gear to catch fish like that!

    you know if the head of the crappie is twice the size of your fist it was a large fish .
    bet like mentioned she don't have many years left .
    she wasn't in really poor shape, but to be sure if she was prime she would a been one of those wally hanger versions .

    I managed a fish out of the Ag lake years ago where my avatar fish came out of that was 19 inches long !
    that fish had the head of a 5 lb black bass on it ! and the body of a sad skinny sandbass
    it came in like a wet rag and just looked at me with really sad eyes .
    when i let it go it barely swam away and i knew it was it's last year in the water body .
    that fish was no thicker than an 8 inch fish
