This one was the middle of November and looked like a January fish.
Most November fish were exceptionally healthy and 'squared up', meaning a 26" fish would weigh 6 lbs., a 27" would go 7 lbs. & so on. Some were even heavier than their last number in length, like this 28" that went 8 1/2.
This day it was all Corky Fat Boys twitched over small scattered grass beds...shin deep early going to about thigh deep by mid-day.
