STORM SURGE SNIPIN'!!!
With the threat of bad storms coming to the area later today and good cloud cover, Dad and I went to Big Long lake with high expectations...and we were not disappointed!
Strikes were plentiful and some were violent.
At one point , Dad had a huge explosion 15 feet from the boat...he felt the weight of the fish...then his line went slack. His 10 lb. test line was severed about 6 inches from the snap swivel...we could only suspect a sharp toothed pike! Luckily, the Sniper lure being buoyant, we were able to retrieve the lure. He lost another pike, but landed a smaller one. All in all, a good morning...9 largemouth bass and a pike...7 of the fish scoring points in the contest!
