    I know people catch em but this is my 2nd biggest spotty and I’m stooooked! Sure it was just 15” but you guys probably haven’t fought a spotty like this. Vid on the way, but basically it hunkered down like a ray. I was bendo for about 3 minutes, wasn’t sure if I was snagged or if I was hooked! Looks like this guy had some scar damage on his lip, otherwise what a beautiful fish!

    Not only did I get a fish but my buddy got two spotties and one was decent! Best day of fishing in a while. By the way, saw two boils and casted toward them...instead of slowing down I pop pop popped it and slam. It was truly amazing and I can’t wait to share the video in the next week or so. Take care, keep fishing, tight lines!!!

    Do you see wear and tear on the mouth? Caught before no doubt with scar tissue I think

    Still didn’t compare to your 18” last year! But the fight was ridiculous, I thought I was snagged bro, some serious power to this one and just wrapped in the weeds the right way, it was insane!

    Thank you for your honesty. Lots of guys would be calling that a 3-4 pounder! When first hooked a spotty will cling viciously to the bottom.

    He clung for about 3 minutes which is what surprised me the most. I’ll be posting a video in the next week or two, dead pinned with heavy drag, my 10lb flouro held on tight!
