Delta Toad

Postby monte300 » Thu Sep 09, 2021 6:15 am

Hey guys and gals, my brother and I fished the Delta yesterday and I managed to catch this fish cranking. It's not my PB, but it is the biggest fish I've ever caught on a squarebill. Overall the bite was tough. Murphy's law my scales failed to work and I couldn't find anyone with good scales. One guy had a deliar that showed 6 1/2 pounds, but that fish was at least a pound bigger than that. I checked the length and girth online and it says at 22.5" long and 18" in girth the fish should weight about 7.8 pounds, which sounds about right.

Great looking fish and awesome catch on a square bill. Those Delta fish have been coming into the scales with big heads and shoulders and not a full of belly. Regardless, that is a great catch for a summer time crank fish!

Thanks Ash! I hooked that fish in weeds and rocks and she was so well behaved to head for open water and not bury up in the weeds. She was super hard pulling and all I could think about was her coming off or being a striper.
