Good way to end the day. Best 5 went 18.0 pounds.

Caught plenty of shad on the "bubbles" for bait, but they were all small and we had to go back into

But finally dialed 'em in at 4pm. Found a new point near an old road bed with lots of rocks on the edge of drop-off within reach of my cranks. Caught one 6lbs 6oz at 4:12pm, then 8.0lbs at 4:22pm. Lost a fish bigger than both of them in between

This time Smokey Joe put him in the boat for pics. Nice rock, 32.5" long, and back in for another fight next year. The score now is one each.
