drums well over 12 lbs brown fishing

 

One day we literally could not keep the small mouth off our sticks brown trolling. They were biting the rigger spoons as soon as they hit the water to go back

We also pulled this guy on a turn with a stick bait. I-Bay has it all in early spring.Seagull.thumb.jpg.f04181086f138ad228a802b3748587be.jpg

not crazy but unexpected. Late July trolling off FH in 8-12 FOW for bass with my parents and caught this guy. Super fun on Ultra light Spin Tackle

Two that come to mind are the 30 lb carp we caught trolling for browns in April, and the 3 lb smallie we caught in 200 fow down 60.

Not an odd species but an odd catch.... Caught a lake trout in 180fow on what amounted to 3 colors of LC. I had a 10 color out and had reeled in 7 colors already when I stopped reeling for a second to make a course correction and the laker hit and nearly took the rod out of my hand.
