17.5 in. Smallmouth Bass caught by Steve Drago fishing in Lake Summerset in Illinois on 05/09/10
17.5" Smallmouth Bass caught by Steve Drago fishing on Sunday May 09, 2010 at 14:34 in Lake Summerset near Davis in Stephenson County, Illinois (IL), United States North America using a Soft Plastic Wax Worm and a Bobber

This one is a funny one. I was trying to catch a Crappie or Bluegill to best my 6-year-old daugher's catch from the day before. I grabbed by 5-foot panfish rig and went out with a jar of fake wax worms. After approx 10 minutes of nothing the bobber plunged and i set the hook. The drag started screaming and I landed this beauty on 4 lb test line and a size 6 hook. I love it when a plan comes together!!

By the way, no panfish the rest of the day.

Great fish....I am planning a trip so that our friend Eric jackson has something to post.

Eric I will cover your admission fee... http://www.lakejulian.com/ ...But wait isn't this the place you already have a season pass too??? Maybe the weather is the reason for your bad luck on the trout pond.
