Biggest fish so far on one of the baits I made!
« on: September 11, 2020, 06:08:50 PM »
So one of my buddies had the biggest fish that I know of on one of my topwater baits that I make. (I call them the SkitterWake) Not sure why they are considered a wakebait, but everyone wanted to call them a wakebait, so hey cant beat em Join em. His big fish hung around for a couple of months actually at 4.49. Anyways, the other night I was paralleling a reed bed and a 4.58 slammed my shorter profile, prototype baits. Its head and upper body came out of the water and I thought it was a lot bigger but when I got it in the boat, she was short and very stocky. Despite having a bait gut hooked very deep, and 8' of mono hanging out of its mouth  ::) I didnt want to go digging so I cut the access line off and let her go.

 After a couple of pictures of course. Hopefully as the water cools a bit and the water levels go back up, I can get one in the 5 or 6lb class on one of these baits.
I make baits, so when I fish, I am product testing! And when I am not using baits I make, I am researching.
