St. Clair Monster Smallie
« on: May 16, 2010, 07:13:13 PM »

As a lot of you know, Tcook and I stayed after the DK Open for a little more fishing.  We fished Saturday evening and caught quite a few on rattle baits.  We were only able to fish for about 4 hours this morning before I had to leave.  But it was plenty of time for me to guide Tim to a monster smallie !!  LOLOL  (cough, cough)   Here are some pics of Tim's 7 pound 4 ounce, 21 3/4in smallie.  He caught it on a Extreme Bass Tackle Slither tube in 9 feet of water.  I'm not trying to steal his thunder.  I'm just the camera man, reporter slash net man !!!  lolol

We onlly caught 10 fish, but one of them was a fish of a lifetime.  I'm just glad I was there to experience it with him.  Congrats Tim, you did a heck of a job playing him.  It's the biggest bass I've ever scene.

Dan, remember you telling us the story at the open about almost having a heart attack releasing that peacock bass?????  I thought the same was gonna happen to Tim after we landed his fish!!!! LOLOLOL  

Hey Brett, sorry we couldn't get one like this during the open!!


I'm not sure these pictures do the fish justice.  It was so big it didn't look real  !!!

Thats a NICE fish.  Impressive!  Of course that would never happen if there is money on the line.  And for me... That would only happen if I forgot the camera!

Again, Nice fish!

Thanks for the top notch guide trip french fry Jeff, I had a blast! It is a fish of a lifetime for sure doubt I will ever get another 7. Gotta give some love to Wayne for making a great product. I got this girl on a 3.5 inch Xtreme tube in dark melon gold tinsel I think its called Slither now with a 3/8 big dude bite me tube jig with a rattle of course. I think they were feeding heavy on small perch, alot of the smallies were spitting them up. For some reason this was my favorite shot of that fish

Original song and lyrics by "MadWags"

What's with the news these days on the TV and the radio. Can't find the truth amongst the lies. Some talking head that claims to live their life in a better way, says I have to compromise. But now there's something on the rise. Truth has opened up my eyes. There's no running from your dirty lies. You can't avoid the truth. I'll no longer close my eyes.

Peace.

Awesome job guys That is why St. Clair is the best lake on the planet!

You've got that right Wags.  Tim and I were questioning whether we should spend the money and stay Saturday night.  I knew we could only fish for up to 4 hours Sunday.  I felt it was worth it and Tim agreed.  When we set out that morning I said, "Ok, lets make it worth staying"  Well after quite some time I didn't think it would be.  The fishing was very very slow.  We only got 10 fish in 4 hours, but oh did that last one make it well worth the extra expense.  I can't tell you how excited and fired up I was to see that thing and for Tim.  I'm fortunate it happend out of my boat.

About 15 years ago I asked Kevin VanDam at a seminar if he lived here (South Bend, Indiana) where would he go to fish for BIG smallies.  I was thinking he'd say Erie or the Traverse City area.  He responded with St. Clair
