Been catching 1 - 1 1/2 lb LMB off my dock but just couldn't catch any bigger ones in last couple of months. Bought a new rod and reel today from Dick's (Lew's Mach II Speed Spool Combo for $169) Great rod/reel and wanted to check it out tonight so hit the dock. Put on a watermelon seed baby brush hog, Texas rigged, and on about the 5th cast, tied one on. It measured almost 19 1/2 inches (4 lber) NICE CATCH!!! In about 10-15 FOW. Threw at bank and hit it about 20 ft from the bank.
