Fishing the legendary Mardi Gras Minnow, part 2
« on: February 23, 2014, 01:27:24 PM »
Just took one of the latest batch and was fishing the local ponds.  6 LMB and one catfish.  The largest LMB went 8 lbs on the Boga grip.  I had an elderly oriental neighbor trail me, and took the occasional photo for me.  Total of the day was 7 LMB, 1 catfish.  Just a few pictures here:
