Default The battle

The wife and I have been literally killing the white perch on conroe for the past 2 weeks. Today she was doing quite well with her minners and had already caught several big perch when I heard her drag singing. She said I'm gonna need the net on this one. It was an op about 25/30 lbs and was a real battle. I missed him with the net on the 1st attempt and he went ballistic. She got him up to the boat 3 more times and I could not get him into the net. I made the fatal mistake of grabbing her line to pull him into the net and he broke off. BOY.. You talk about some horrible looks. She got her another minner and in just a few seconds I hear drag singing again. I said are you hung up or what? She said I need the net again. I redeemed myself and will live to see another day. Although not as big as the one that broke off she forgave me. Also caught 8 more bags of crappie fillets

I think we need to change your name to Dr. Crappie.
