  what gets me .....

...... is that huge Smallie is going to get caught by someone else pretty soon , it's almost a fact . Right now it's in a short and narrow slow creek that gets a fair amount of pressure this month ... it's an especially aggressive Smallie to boot , one of the very few that even bothered to bite in that creek this day because of the too cold water temps. in it still .

And when they catch it , it's going to be wearing my jewelry , a red shank hook w/ 1/4 oz. lead jig head , it will probably have been able to shed the 4" plastic Crawdad tube by then though , but not the hook jewelry in it's jaw , it was stuck good .

Shortly after the break off , it jumped water 50' down stream ... already trying to get rid of it's new jewelry . I hear lip piercing is in now a days !!

It's fact that if one Smallie has a bait in it's mouth that other Smallies will attempt to steal it from him ... we hope it sheds the plastic so they don't try that . Can you imagine the fish wearing the jewelry and the other fish biting it from his mouth ... and getting hooked in the process also . Two stuck together fish isn't going to be very good for either of them , really hope that doesn't happen .

I've seen these Smallies gang up on the fish that just got hooked with that Crawdad hanging out it's mouth . They ram it broadside , bite at it's mouth to steal the bait away , try to make it drop it so they can get it ... crazy aggressive fish they are .
