20 inch Juniata River smallmouth bass
The cell phone camera really doesn’t do justice to this fish. I caught it around the middle of April in 2011. A few days later I pulled out an even larger 21-inch smallmouth from the same spot. Both fish were returned unharmed to the water. I’ve been back to that spot every April since then hoping I could have the same luck again. Maybe 2014 will be the year I hook into another big one!
