That's awesome, I love catching wiper like that, I just vibrate for about 15mins after releasing them. I tell my son its an adrenaline catch.

Brad Holister . . . . .your jumping into a thread that's about a guys personal best catch.Please respect that thread and go start a new thread asking about the lights link you put up. Your just going to be ingnored for jumping in a thread about something totally different.
Just my two cents worth.

Brad, odd place to ask that but I'm glad you did. Check out this video my brother made and you can make your own light CHEAP and waaay brighter than anything you are looking at. He fishes the Colorado river below Hoover Dam and Lake Mead in Nevada/Arizona and makes our fish look like minnows lol.

[log in for link]

His channel is skippys outdoors, he doesn't have much but check it out.

We could post that in a separate thread so others can see it. It is so simple to make and unbelievably cheap. I have not used mine much here honestly, but back in Nevada I have seen literal swarms of shad by the boat, I am talking thousands.

But to everyone else thank you and tight lines! Caught it on a slip bobber rig with a lindy jig and shiner. The simplest rigs catch me the best fish more often than not.
