Fish tale: Resolve to catch big fish pays off

5 posts in this topic

(from the StarTrib)

Luke Iverson, 12, of Lakeville, caught a 20-inch bass on an unnamed Minnesota lake.

(As told by Luke's dad, Glaydon)

"It was Saturday morning at the cabin; Luke and his cousin Adam went snorkeling about 100 feet off the dock and noticed a large fish hanging out in a rocky area.

"Luke came back all excited and told his mom, 'I am going to catch that big fish today.'

"With no fishing boat available and the rocky area too far for casting from the dock, Luke put on his snorkel gear and while carrying his fishing pole in his right hand, snorkeled out to the spot where he had seen the fish.

"In about 6 feet of water, Luke happened to find a rock to stand on, dropped his line, and seconds later snagged the fish.

"He snorkeled back to the dock as fast as he could with bending pole in hand and fish on the line.

"We guessed the smallmouth bass to be about 20 inches in length and 3 pounds.

"After some high-fives and picture-taking, the smallmouth bass was released to be caught another day.''

The new tactic, snorkle fishing without a harpoon. Great story, but I bet that bass was heavier than three pounds.

X2. At 20 inches it should be at least 4lb skinny or pushing 5lbs, maybe even almost 6lb isnt out the question? Its going to depend on the girth. Is there a picture of the fish to at least get a clue?
