Went out trolling for eyes Thursday evening with OGF members Mastiff and RiverRunner88 (Jake). Jake should have been on the boat with me and Bill Tuesday evening when we caught the 9.2 lb eye but he had to do some chores around the house. Needless to say he was a little disappointed not being there for the big fish. Well, he got his :B Thursday evening. This fish was caught on another one of my homemade jointed lures. After the success of the 7-1/4" jointed wonderbread lure (which has been oficially named WonderBill) Tuesday evening I decided to put hooks on a 2nd one I had made at the same time. The 2nd lure is orange, green, and yellow with gold stripes and was painted with spray cans before I purchased my airbrush. I liked the wonderbread pattern better so I never got around to putting hooks on this one. First time ever in the water BAM! The lure has been officially named "Jointed Jake". The fish weighed just over 8-1/2 lbs and was almost lost at the boat. As Jake was holding the rod tip up, Bill reached down to net the fish and all of a sudden the lure came shooting up out of the water. There was a silent pause that seemed to go on for an eternity, then Bill raised the net and said "got it". At that moment I think Jake promised to go to church every Sunday for the rest of his life. Excellent Job on the net Bill!
