Biggest Catch: 18.00 IN
I was fishing in a kayak with high winds. The fish were lethargic from a cold front and were super finicky. I was able to locate them in Tree tops. I caught them on a jig while bouncing and dragging it over the tree tops. They were super slow to eat it and I had to count to 10 before setting the hook.
