Never posted in this "sub forum" but figured its about time since I live on a lake. I live on lake Magdalene in Tampa. I keep my jonboat here and fish it Atleast once a week. The private boat ramp is like 75ft from my door. This lake is full of vegetation and life and I'm coming close to figuring the fish out after 10 months here. Saltwater is my passion but the lake in my backyard is a nice release after work and lazy days off and weekends. This was a 7lber yesterday. First cast, 4ft deep sunken island with heavy vegetation. Caught on a 5" yamasenko NF/LG Gen/Purp, rigged texas on a 3/0 Gama. 6'6 med Falcon HD (great rod for the money btw!) Stradic 2000 and 8lb flouro. Hell of a fight and also pulled up 2 lbs of hydrilla. What can I say? I'm a sportsman.
