Just thought we could all share the largest fish we caught in 2009. Where it was caught and how it was caught. Only share what you feel comfortable sharing. My big fish for the year was a 50 pound blue. A 66 pounder was also caught by one of my fishing partners. The 50 was caught drifting, around December 15, at Lake Springfield. I caught it on filleted shad with a santee drift rig. Was caught in 22 ft of water. The 66 was caught in July while anchored up on a channel ledge. It was in 5 ft of water on shad guts. Both were caught on Lake Springfield. Which is really starting to turn into a quality catfishery. Hope to see some more fisherman fish the Lake Springfield Open Buddy Catfish Tournament Series. By the way all fish caught be me or my partners, over 5 pounds, are released, so those blues, are still out there to catch again.
