DuPage Angler Lands 4 Pounder On The 4th of July!

Date Of My Catch: 7/4/14

You gotta love fishing during the week on a holiday, right? Caught this little 4lb piggy at a subdivision pond behind my brother's house in plainfield. Started at about 5:30 am with just a green pumpkin baby paca craw and hit about 8-10 within the first 30 minutes. all were in the 2.5-3lb range. Decided that I wanted to go for something a little bigger. Bigger lure, bigger fish, right? Tied on a black  and green pumpkin football jig with a green pumpkin paca chunk trailer. First cast........BAM! Hit it like a freight train. I didn't realize it at the time, but I had a small audience, by way of a guy, his wife, and their 2 kids watching me fight it. As soon as I landed her, went right to the bps digital scale. 4.1 was the official weight. I showed the kids what a "big" fish looks like and they were stoked. The guy said he lived there and couldnt believe there were fish that big in the pond. Have I inadvertently sparked an interest for him and his kids? Either awesome start to the holiday for me. Happy 4th of July to you all.

Way to go. Nice catch. Love the ponds in the subdivisions. Ya you may have given up a honey hole but if you were able to spark the interest of fishing in a KID, kudos to you, they are the future of the sport.
