    Just got off the water with my brother. One bite, but it was a good one.

    4.8lbs on the digital, 21.5 inches. Very long fish, thought it was going to be over 5lbs. INHALED a jig.

    Enjoy the pics.

    Nice job, but i agree with parmabass, get that scale checked! I was thinking more like 5.04lbs:D :D I guess your gonna have to take me back to your quarry so i can break that 5lb fish for ya! Awesome fish i'm jealous.
  6. DANG IT! i was going to go out today and throw my jig and pig at the local pond Wateredge/Plantation lakes. Is pork better for cold water or will plastic work just as good as a trailer. Also should i fish it in stained rather than clear water? Sorry for steppin on your post

    I fish it in any water clarity.

    I also strictly use plastic, although I know guys who prefer pork early in the season.
  8. Now thats what i have been waitng to see!! I knew you would be posting a hawg soon. A pig as usual!! Let the pigging and jiging begin!!:) Great job!!
