Multi-Species Toadfest (2.11.23)
« on: Feb 12, 2023, 01:56 PM »
Shaun and I met up for a little ice bassin', and ended up with a multi-species toadfest!  It was a bunch of fun, with most bass in the 17-19.5" range, and most caught on live fatheads. Shaun got his PB pike at around 26", then upgraded it to 28", using 4lb mono!  We also found a few small channel cats and a bunch of small gills.  All fish were returned unharmed. Good times!
Here's a rather large photo dump, for your enjoyment!
DOUBLE!  ;D









26"

28"








Flags up, gentlemen!!!

Great day with no temptation to squeeze another filet in the freezer!

More than 1 hr, less than 5 hrs…but it depends on how you drive.
