Default 30 on Poppa Pencil

Last Saturday we had a very nice day with 15 bass coming to play. The first part of the day we had a great top water bite for half an hour. I was lucky enough to hook up with this beautiful fish on a pencil popper. It was just under 30 pounds on the boga (on a rocking boat) and my personal best on a plug. Great fight on the 7-foot St. Croix Ben Doerr, and she gave me a shower when she took off

The tail on this fish is ridiculous.

Great pic and beautiful fish. The only time I hooked one in that class was on a popper at Sandy Hook the first year I was surf fishing, and I did not know how to bring it to shore. Lost it in the first wave. I only know from the school (and others catching around me) *about* how big it was, but funny you mention it... it was the tail that told the "tale"
