    Report: My riend Rich and I launched around 6:00 am and headed or Bear Creek. On my 5th cast using a Vyper spinnerbait in a shad pattern, I put a ive# in the livewell. About 5 minutes later Rich boats a 3# on a ratteltrap(chrome & black). Ater missing a ew more, Rich get hit by something real big. As soon as she hit he said that it was a hog, so i tell rich to loosen his drag. The ight was on, he must have ought her or close to ive minutes. When she suraced I could tell that she was going to be a GOOD one. When we inally got her into the boat and weighed her, she came in close to eleven pounds(caught on a bass pattern crankbait). What a beautiul ish. During the rest o the day we landed eight total the best ive probably going somewhere close to 27. We also managed to land a six pound striper. Her is a good one. We were working the point in between two campgrounds(I was using a rattletrap that was nailed by a nice sized Bluegill. This was my best day yet (the irst ten plus in my boat). Needless to say I will be going back.
