A buddy of mine sent over an email along with a photo from a recent fishing trip.  One of his friends got a huge smallie up in Vilas County Wisconsin.  The fish was caught on a Yamamoto Kreature.

I’d like to share it with all here on my blog.   This fish is a beauty.

Here’s what he had to say…

“Hey Don…the man in this photo is Bob Hager from Carol Stream. He caught this fish on our annual Sayner , Wi. trip. The smallie was 6 lb 15 oz. 21″.  It doesn’t appear to be that big because Bob is a giant man.  If you can, see if you can publish it as we recently lost our friend, Jim Lepper who always accompanied Bob as his partner. Jim passed away last Tues. from cancer. It would sure help Bob with the healing process to see his pic in the paper….Thanks.  Mike S.”
