I was in the park over the weekend from Friday to Monday. We survived the howling winds and falling trees on Friday and woke up to a nice fishing morning on Saturday.
Headed out around 7:15-7:30 on a gorgeous steam covered lake. We anchored our canoe near a nice looking lay down in the water and started casting. I was using a weightless trigger x hodad Texas rigged on a 4/0 offset wide gap hook. 5 casts on I felt a small tug on the line and set the hook into what first felt like a log. It wasn’t. The fight lasted about 1 minute maybe two and I had her in a net. I was positive it was a 5.5 pounder. I took the hook out, let her revive in the net in the water for a minute and weighed her. She topped the scale at 4lbs 12ozs. Almost 22” long. Took a couple pics and let her swim away. What a feeling!

You can tell that is a big one by the width of the fish just before the tail!
