16" yellow
« on: Mar 25, 2020, 07:12 AM »
It's been crazy at work so I am just getting around to posting this. Here is a 16" yellow I jigged up while on my vaca in NH. I would guess around 2 1/2lbs as she was similar in size to the smallies I was catching. New state record? Most likely but she swims to see another day. A great way to end my season. I appreciate everyone's input to making my trip safe and fun so thank you all!

Yessa! I know the one I got early in the year was longer than the record but a few ounces shy so it doesnít count. Congrats!

Nice Jumbo! Glad you got some end of season fishing in on your vaca.

Thanks everyone. Vaca was full of exploring new places and looking for good ice with decent edges. I never did actually get onto a school of whites even while fishing 5 days in a row but I was able to pick a few out that were cruising by. Tons of lakers, yellow perch, pumpkinseeds, and smallmouth bass. Even a few rock bass. All in all a great adventure one way or another. Ice gear is away and I have been chasing bass and will continue to do so until the tautog are in.
