PIG Liberty Reservoir Smallie

Type: Freshwater
Region: Central
Location: Liberty Reservoir

Fishing the other day 6/25/2013 around 7:30PM in Liberty Reservoir from my kayak, throwing big topwaters. This guy came up and absolutely crushed my floating 8" freestyle trout lure. I wish I had remembered to turn my GoPro ON.....AHHHH, always next time. I don't have a scale yet but he was well over 4+lbs and around 20" in length. The lure I was using was 8" long so you can get a good Idea of how big he was. Wish you could of heard the SMACK when he crushed the lure and went airborne. Sorry, I can't tell if its a male or female . You can see a pretty distinct hump in it's back from the gopro screen shot. Next time I will have a scale to verify the weight. I'm gunning for that seriously dated record of 8lbs... wish I could find a picture of that fish, I almost dont believe it. Thanks, Mike
