I went out fishing last night with the famous PierBridge and this was the first fish of the night. At first I thought it was a snag and then it started to fight smile smiley

It sure was a fun outing, BobberDown was on fire he had Aaron "Big G" down 5 nothing with 4 different species using a FireTiger #7 ShadRap.......Aaron did get the biggest Eye of the evening an 18 incher...along with a Smallie and another 14" Eye....

I thought BobberDown landed a Smallie also but I can't find the pic...

Can't wait to do it again......

The Sheepshead is one of the biggest landed on Mississippi in recent memory and nobody I've talked to remembers anything that big so far up the river "upperpool 2" most of the bigger Sheepys come from pool 4 "Redwing" and down....I've seen a couple around 8 pounds and my biggest fishing this part of the river for past 25 years is about 6 pounds.

Looks like you guys were out by Hidden Falls.

Do you have any tips for me if I wanted to go down and fish from shore down there?

i would probably be casting different rapalas and cranks.

Any tips would be great. Thanks.

Like my dad says even a blind squirl can find a nut.
Just razzin ya,way to go guys. It looks like you guy had a blast.That sheephead must have been a real battle! Looks like BD got some sun too.I've been working on my tan for those beauties at BIR.Not this weekend ,but next I'll be snortin nitro methane.

You guys are my heros,to be in the jungle & still come up with quality fish. Again great job & it's very nice to see your pics. I have a few to post if I can get to town to pick them up. I also have some from Mille Lacs with Tony & his buds. The eyes are still crankin out on the big pond.
