Heavy Hitter


North Platte NE

My girlfriend and i went out to an area known for producing some big wipers this time of year. We were there about 10 minuets and she hooked into one, 20 minuets later she has a nice 26" trophy. I couldnt have been more proud!! The day before we caught 3 others ( 24', 24 1/4', and a 26') with her catching the big one and me losing a monster right at the rocks. After her big one on this day it got quiet. 2 hours pass and nothing. Just about ready to give up and staring off into space my rod jumps almost out of my hands and the fight was on. 20 minuets later this guy gives up and im able to land him. Not as big as the one i posted earlier this year but still no slouch. we got some pictures and let him go. Man i love these fish!!
