My Lucky Night! (A Good True Fish Story)
But it didn't look that way to start out with. I arrived at the GOMH at about 8:30PM and started casting my white Stanley Phantom just to the left of "the juice." The "juice" is now plugged up with weeds. On about my third cast a fish was hitting my lure and I jerked. My Phantom came off of the Norman Speed Clip. I must not have put it on correctly because that has never ever happened to me with a topwater lure; Spinnerbaits more times than I care to think about, a couple of times with diving plugs, but never a topwater. Anyway I hadn't hooked the fish, so I could see it floating out there. I immediately grabbed the chartreuse firetiger Phantom and started casting for it. On about the 3rd attempt a jumpin bullhead jumped all over the chartreuse Phantom. Keep in mind I was not working the bait, just trying to catch my lure. I quickly reeled it in the discover it was a 19" Derby Fish.
gSince he went through the "new juice" I cast a Spro Poppin' Frog off to the East and got a 15.5" on that. I went back to throwing the chartreuse Phantom and got four more jumpers from 13" to 15.5" before the mosquito's chased me out at around 9:35PM.
