Gillcracker?

Caught this in a cow pond that supposedly had "no fish". Most of the fish we caught were 3-4" stunted bluegill, but the few larger fish that were in there were absolutely gorgeous! We caught some…Continue

My little brother was fishing a 3" white triple ripple grub and caught a baby smallmouth and lost a 15"er within 5 minutes of our arrival. I only caught a couple chubs and fallfish…
