Caught this beauty just at dusk on June 3rd on Lake Belton. Hadn’t had much luck all day but something still felt right. I had seen a flip in the water and knew it must have been a decent fish. I cast about 10 yards where the ripples were fading and on the third jig, she took off. The battle was on! I knew my Grand Daddy was smiling down from heaven when he seen me land such a fish on an old hula popper jig he had given before he passed. Some twenty years old tackle still got the magic!
