Date Of My Catch:25-04-2014
Location: DuPage County pond

Went fishing at a local pond in southern DuPage County. I've had luck the last couple days with t-rigged plastics and jigs. I was throwing a green pumpkin and orange 5" paca craw as I felt a bite only a few feet from shore. I set the hook hard and saw a solid fish on the end of my line. When I got it to shore it taped at 20.5". I didn't get a weight but it was definitely a solid fish. This particular fish had red on the bottom of its tail fin indicating it was getting ready for the spawn. All in all, a solid morning of fishing.

VERY nice catch! Your COTD submission has been entered in the May Catch Of The Day Voting Booth. The first COTD voting booth ended prematurely and that is why your fish was submitted for May.
