Wow. Nice fish. I didn't know there were that many fish up there that long ago.
One of my biggest largemouth came from the flats a few years ago while casting a 6 inch storm swim bait for stripers in the grass at the mouth of the NE river. I was completely not expecting that and when it jumped I thought, stripers don't jump? It weighed around 7 pounds on some cheap scale we had on the boat. Released unharmed.
