I went fishing today and caught several small channels.I started getting a little disapointed and then suddenly I saw a large snapper sticking his nose up at the surface about 30 feet from shore. With my three poles I threw cut blue gill, chicken liver and on the third pole a big shrimp. I was surprised that he didn't touch any one of them.After about 5 mins I got impatient and pulled in the line that had the shrimp on it and put a chunk of deer meat on it. It was the first time that I've ever used it. I threw it to the same spot and within a few seconds he hit it. I was thrilled when I pulled him to shore. He weighed 40 lbs topping my previous record of 35lbs. It felt great guys! Just had to tell you all about it.
