Big Fish for OFM’s Keith Worrall on Tuesday night

What a crazy afternoon on the water at the Outdoorsfirst Spring Bay Resort outing on lake Vermilion. Saw a short lower thirty inch class fish earlier in the afternoon and just when I was talking about how do these damn fish get so big in here when they never eat this giant slammed my Violent Strike Spinnerbait about 7 feet from the boat. It was dark and I had no head lamp on so when she sucked in my spinnerbait I actually thought it was a low 40” class fish until I set the hook and the rod loaded up and she didn’t even budge. Awesome close quarters fight and my buddy Andrew Golden put her in the net. Giant in the bag baby! Beat my personal best by a quarter of an inch. 52 3/4 on the board. What a tank!

Andrew and Keith took a few minutes to chase some panfish in between muskie fishing and tore em up pretty good most fish came in 6 to 8′ of water just inside the weed edge. Fish were caught on a Kenders jig tipped with a Muddy Water Baits Tail and 1” Berkley Gulp Alive minnows.
