We were chasing the hybrid strippers around... they had the shad balled up near the surface about 20 feet of shore in a deep spot. It was just an awesome site to see the water "boil" with strippers and shad. We were throwing out curly tails in the middle and catching these hybrids when I saw a brown mass come up and gulp at the surface...you could see his face and whiskers...man what a fish. Judging by his head and silhouette he had to be around 50 pounds. You could tell he was the boss in these waters.
