Biggest Greenie I've ever seen caught
« on: December 05, 2008, 12:40:54 PM »
 ;D  My wife.....with a GREAT green fish! 

The story is even better.....  We were in Cabelas thinking about buying a fly tying kit so we could make our own crappie jigs.  She got hooked, and now makes a lot of the lures we use for our fishing. 

One of the first.....I think 3 jigs she made caught this huge bass!  4 pound test on an ultralight rod!  She did a GREAT job playing the fish, and got it in in about 10 minutes or so.  The fish took her ALL over this 3 acre pond.

I had no idea there were bass like this in that pond, so we had no tape measure or scale.   :P  BUMMER!  I'm guessing it to be around 8 pounds though, and have had several tournament fishermen take a look at it, and they estimate 7.5 to 8. 

 :-*  Gotta appreciate a woman that can land a fish like this on ultralight gear and her own hand-made lure!

 :pot:  Some time, just for the Internet Police on those other sites, her and I are going to hold up the same fish with it pointing one way in one pic, and the other way in the other pic, and say they're two different fish, and ask which one people think is bigger, putting up a poll.   :pot:

Lots of folks that know me personally tell me all the time to let my wife pose with my fish and deer.   :whistling:

Heck fire, my wife is allergic to fish, can't eat them or even touch them. You guys are lucky. Yep, that would be a great poll Parker. Do it and then post a link here so we can see the poll results and comments. I'll bet it would be a kick.
