    Didn't fish as long as the other days. But really wanted a good fish. Started with Texas rig and got 2 small bass and a hali. Then get a hard bite and it fight hard with some big head shakes and makes me drag it through the grass and almost gets stuck. Land it and measure it to be biggest Spottie of the year at 15in.

    Kept fishing the trig for some missed trig bites. Then switched to the flashminnow and end up sticking a big fish. I couldn't tell what it was. It felt heavy. Finally see it when it comes up next to the rocks and it's a big vina! It turns back from where it first seen it which was a good spot to land it. And it was calm not really freaking out . So I try turning it and it comes off slowly swimming away. Later find out it bent the hook. Not going to use stock flashminnow hooks anymore. They stay sharp but bend easily. It would have been the biggest one of the year so far for sure looked around 24-25in. Always seems like the vina get away when they don't fight hard. Kept fishing and stick another one. It was a lot lighter then the vina with head shakes. Pull it up to find a legal Spottie.

    You should zoom in more to show only your skateboard so no one can analyze the dirt :)
