Default Smallmouth!!!!!

I was excited when I caught a couple of 12-13" smallmouth last week, but was really EXCITED when this hog took my Clouser Minnow!

It measured 18" in length, but was so big around!!! I had a brand new net. It was at home, still in its packaging. I was standing in waist deep water, and when it jumped, I thought there was no way I'd land that fish. The stream is littered with huge boulders, and I quickly backed into shallow water. After a couple more leaps, I was able to grab its lip and take a pic. Rod was a 590 Sage Z-Axis with a 6wt line (Windy!!!), and an 8' 3X knotted leader. I'm a happy camper!
