CrappieKeith, I didn't have a scale with me at the time but my guess is between 5-7 lbs. We used light tackle to catch some shiners, which were about 6 inches long beleive it or not. Threw the shiner out hooked to the mouth with a good size split shot with no bobber. Damn thing almost pulled my pole off the dock!
Sorry about the quality of the pics, my buddy forgot he had black and white film loaded.
Just standing on the dock, you could see the bass swimming over their beds back and forth...patrolling their bare sandy spot for intruders. One could actually watch the smaller bass being chased off. Temps were in the low 90's that day and water temp near 80.
Thats how it goes Doons. We used to as kids get perch and hook a monster hook in it with a bouy for a bobber ang get big northerns. I know that is illegal to use a game fish for bait ,but that young who cared. Besides there was only 1 warden in the area and you had to be grossly over limit before he would mess with you. Heck at 12 I was spearing walleyes not knowing any better or later as I grew by accident.We always ate them so my dad did not care.What the heck if a non white can spear one for sale, why not a white hungry guy.

People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
