I had a very nice surprise this morning and it has lead me to give a BIG THANKS to PB and all it's members. I little background...
I stocked my little BOW with HSB, HBG, and RES late April (2018). The 42 HSb were in the 4 to 6" range. Here's what I thought was a good representation of the stockers (about 5 inches long)...
Now, fast forward a whole 3-1/2 months later, not quite 20 to 30 pounds of Optimal and...BAM!!!
11 inches long and 3/4 pound!
Holy Smokes! Thanks everyone, at this rate, this time next year 6 pound test won't do it.
REALLY...THANK YOU ALL! I'm Stoked!
EDIT: Week of 8/20 I caught two more HSB. One was 0.9 lbs while the other was just over 1 lb.
