Been on vacation here at lake wateree for the past week. My mom and dad came down for a couple of days and we took them down to cedar creek to try for the cats and striper. Wind was rough, but we finally got set up in a nice spot. After setting the rods out with half shad and half crappie filets, it wasn't long before one decided to slowly take a run. My dad was there waiting for the fish to decide he wanted the bait. Once he picked the rod up and set the hook, the rod doubled over and the fight was on. He fought the fish like a pro. I knew once he started he was at least dealing with a 25lb plus fish. After a long fight and several runs by the fish, I leaned over with the net and got a hold of the fish. We grabbed the scales and the monster weighed out at 42lbs!! That was the biggest fish my dad has ever caught and I was a very proud son standing beside him while he landed it.
