I always think about starting one of these and never do. We hit it a lot and it would be nice to track our hunts, lol.
Going to start it with our summer. Drew gave up playing travel ball this year. His main reason was he wanted to hunt and fish more and all of our weekends are spent at a ball field with him and Addy both playing all over. I bought us a small boat and committed to spending one day minimum per week with drew on the water. We have it pretty hard, lol.
We have caught some nice fish, kept them and ate pretty good too. We haven't caught much over 10 lbs and we always are chasing what Drew refers to as "the biggen"...a big shovelhead...he caught a nice blue and we took home some nice channels but never a "biggen".

Saturday night would be our last outing before school started today. With school and sept 1st coming our fishing will wind down quite a bit. I started off the night with a bang catching five nice channels including a fat 7 lber. Drew hadn't had but one bite and i was feeling bad. We have had nights like that where it was just the opposite and he caught them all, lol. Little did we know what was in his future!
About 1230 am his big pole with a gold fish took off! He set the hook and nothing even budged! He said i think im somehow snagged. We knew better, we were anchored. I put the light on his line and immediately seen it take off as drag began to peel! What took place over the next 15 minutes is something neither one of us will ever forget! He finally got "the biggen" and it was on! His composure is something that makes me so proud. He remained calm like he had done this a thousand times! When finally pulled this giant into the boat, the pure excitement we had was absolutely epic! We are both still fired up and probably will be for awhile...lol

35 lbs and over 50 in long. This was the type of fish we have been chasing all year. We are better hunters than fishermen, lol. We have spent a ton of time hoping to land a fish like this and Drew was finally able to do it. After many pics we returned the beast back into the lake. Hopefully another fisherman will one day get to experience an awesome night like we were able to in the future!
