Never was much for citations. but I am hunting state records.
One time on Little Pax River off of Brock Bridge Rd in Laurel. I was fishing for what ever. I was standing on the bank and they had opened the damn (Brighton). The water was getting it at a good clip. I cast upstream an let my 1" grub go with the current. I was using an ultra lite. I got snagged and walked upstream about 5 paces. Then the snag shot across the river. After a good fight on a six foot ledge I hauled in an 18" Largemouth that went about 3 1/2 to 4 lbs. Shocked could not describe what I went through!!!
