Travis Takes Up Angling

Wednesday, December 05, 2012 1 Comments

Recently a friend of mine, Travis, just started fishing. I took him to Cabela's and helped him pick out a spinning outfit. He ended up getting a Medium-Light 7' Triumph Series St. Croix rod and a Shimano Sienna reel: all for around $100. Took him out to Clinton Lake a few weeks ago and he landed two very nice fish: hopefully signs of great angling in the future. 

Travis's first fish ever: 1 1/4 lb White Bass on Rattletrap. 

Travis's second fish: a really nice Smallmouth Bass, by far the biggest I have ever seen taken out of Clinton Lake. Good Job Travis!

*Note: I really wish he wouldn't have kept the Smallmouth, but being one of his first fish, he was insistent upon keeping it.
