Took out guiding clients this morning to Alum Creek. My clients were a 9 year old boy and his mother. We hit the water at about 10 AM and began trolling. After 2 hours with no fish, the mom stated that she thought we would be casting rather than just dragging lures behind the boat. A minute or two later, one of the reels clicked a few times (kinda like on JAWS) and it was on. I handed the youngster the rod and about 2 seconds later (I'm not exagerating) another rod started screaming! DOUBLE !!!!!! I grabbed the second rod from the rod holder and told the youngster to trade me rods cause #2 was a good one. I reeled the smaller fish in quickly and just shook it loose at boatside without measuring or even bringing it in the boat. The young man fought the other fish for about 5 minutes and in the net it went. It was 35 inches and fat as could be. Pics will be coming as soon as "mom" emails them to me. It is truly inspiring to see the look on a 9 year old boys face after catching a 35 inch musky. To put icing on the cake, the drag went off again about 20 minutes later. When the young man brought this one up to the surface, it was not a musky but the biggest smallmouth bass I have ever laid eyes on. This fish jumped about 2 feet before getting to the net and shook the lure loose and swam away. I gotta tell you though, this smallie would turn heads on Lake Erie. EVERY BIT of 22-23 inches and an easy 6 or 7 lbs. I've caught a lot of smallies in my day, but this one was the best I've ever seen. Shame we never landed it. The moral of the story....big baits catch big fish.
