NOT ALWAYS THE RIGHT FISH   Leave a comment

Recently, while doing an interview and photo shoot on Rend Lake with Jim and Barbara Reedy, we were in for a surprise.
Trying to get a photo of the Spider rig used by the Reedys requires moving to another boat to take the picture head on. As we maneuvered into position, one of Barbara’s poles took a nose dive.

Grabbing hold of the pole it was apparent that she had the “Mother of All Crappies” or some other species. During the brief encounter, most of us believed she had one of the channel catfish well known in this lake.
With Jim’s netting assistance they were able to boat a nice big freshwater drum. Not the crappie she was hoping for, nor even the channel catfish, still Barbara had fun with another denizen of the deep from Rend Lake.
