20150928_185021 ~ MASTER ANGLER SMB AT 21.25"

Fantastic catch Slip .Congratulations .I always appreciate the details on gear used etc too!

thanks John!... a great milestone for me... especially one of my top favorite fish

here's the setup i used to tag this fish...

5-6 ft Micro UL JIGGING ROD W/4-0# Berkley Nanofil

Fishing on one of my hotspots I land 3 out of 6 fish on with the 6ft UL with 4# test Nanofil baited with a Berkley 2" Ripple shad

20151014-WIXOM LAKE~ (3) LUNKER SMB'S

Bait of Choice Berkley 2" Ripple Shad  1/32 oz jig head 4# Berkley Nanofil

20151014- BERKLEY SWIM BAIT 2" RIPPLE SHAD

20151018 – … what a beautiful fall evening for a visit to the honey hole at the bridge

It took only a few casts to tag a nice Smallie along some submerged structure. Tagging these fish on my Ultra Lights with 4# test or less super lines has been a great pattern the last few weeks and has upped my avg numbers and sizes of these fish during the seasons of record. The fish just measured over 19” and a true lunker. Follow up casts proved in my mind that this was a solitary fish.

20151018_1748 - 92% Master Angler Rated SMB @ 19.3"

Congrats on an excellent fish Slip!

20151020 TROPHY SMB CAUGHT ON WHITE JELLY JIG

only spent a few minutes fishing late this morning and tied up with a monster SMB. casting parallel to shore along the open rip rap in less than a foot of water with my UL 6' rod with 6# Nanofil loaded with a white Tabbert Jelly Jig i tied into this hog. spectacular fight! as i netted this beauty i knew it would be close to another citation fish (in Michigan you are allowed one certificate per species per year) at 20.6" is a trophy anywhere you go. The Jelly Jig has Big Fish swagger!
