So, I have spent quite a few evenings and nights chasing "phantoms" this spring, summer and fall. I new they were there; but spent countless hours hucking baits into the darkness to no avail. So, on a last minute whim I tried it again. For three hours prior to darkness nadda....Then a change of lure to a cheap ass BPX jerkbait and bam the curse of the "Zman Sagging Mooseknuckle" was over and my vamping career will continue on a quest for the elusive 10lber. The first fish was a chunky smallie just over 19" and over 4lbs. Within 5 casts I got what I was looking for a PB Saugeye 24" and and official weight of 5.02 lbs once I got home. I landed another 18 1/2" saugeye minutes later and then nothing for the next two hours.

Don't normally keep too many fish but after all those hours....WHY NOT???

Congrats man. Nice fish
Thanks. Seemed like it would never happen at times. But, I guess I had to pay my dues. Hopefully the next one won't be so far in between trips....

Nice Saug!! There are even bigger ones there, but they are pretty hard to catch!
I have no "eyedea" where "there" is ;) because my lips are sealed. Gonna visit another "there" over the weekend closer to home. Supposedly they grow 'um big as well.
