First things first, I have only been fishing for three years, so please don't pile on. This year I have finally been having a measure of success, but I felt like I got to comfortable at one body of water. So a couple weeks ago I tried a new spot and ended up with this 18 incher. Found him sitting under a bridge about an hour before dark on a gulp minnow. Had my ultralight with me and it made for an awesome fight. Finally an avatar pic, even though I hope I replace it soon with something bigger.
