Looking through some forgotten pics a couple months back I realized at one point this summer I had caught the same 4 footer twice. Well I was just looking through some other forgotten pics and holy hell I caught her 3 times! Here is the kicker. I caught her 3 times in a 6 week span. On the late july new moon, the end of August new moon and the mid September full moon. All 3 times she ate after dark and all 3 times she ate the exact same 10/12 combo bucktail. This fish came from a massive area of the st. Lawrence with miles of weedbeds with countless ambush points and all 3 times she chose the same spot. Shes far from the alpha in that area but she definitely has a favorite feeding spot on the moons.
That is very cool John. Maybe she will say hello to you next year. I wonder if she knows the sound of your boat. Maybe she'll want you to do a (Bill) Dance with her. Definitely a great testament to C&R.
Do you participate in Dr John Farrell's diary study. I think he would be interested to hear about it.
