a New Personal Best for me on SML

Post by Mike Ward » March 14th, 2016, 10:35 am

Tyler will get around to posting up a report from a weekend of fishing hard on SML, but I scored a new personal best on SML on Saturday fishing an area that I'd been talking for the last couple of years about wanting to take some big gizzards in mid March and pull, but it never came together for some reason to do so. It didn't take too long after finally doing it to pay out some results...


25.5 lbs / 38.25" - 38.5" in length - beats my weight PB by 3-4 lbs and length by 1/4 -1/2".

Nice one Mike! Haven't read a report in forever, work has been crazy.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
