Week 7: Catch-22 for Flytyin'Joel Created: Sun, 07/19/2020 - 21:50 Default: No

What an amazing week it was. I thought this massive shorthead would be my highlight for the week as it was truly giant. Having basically no bait left on my hook, I was drifting my rig from up river as I decided to reel in. Suddenly, I felt a tight line and my rod started to bend. I was amazed by the power of this beautiful Greater redhorse. New pb for sure! It's a shame no one was around to take a picture of me holding the fish. I didn't have a tape so measured it on my rod and got about 25 1/2 inches. I can't even explain the girth on this redhorse. It was truly enormous. Just look at the pin compared to it! Wow, I love greaters! Green sunfish hybrid bluegill counting for greensunfish. Also caught a sand shiner. (23 species for the week!)
