Default Big Mouth Buff

Today i took my dad out to the des plains for fathers day and we shot a few but got a big suprise when i arroweda monster big mouth buff. He was just about 12 pounds, had a hard time keeping him still until i could club him. it was quite a suprise because he was just sucking scum and i could not see his whole body and thought he was smaller than he turned out to be. it was great.

Good shootin! Looks like we will be out on Wednesday night. Not sure how early but I'm sure we'll be out after dark. I can't guarantee a spot on a boat but you're welcome to meet up with us. Get your dad out there with the boat again!

Nice shootin' SS.

The bigmouths are nice since they present such a wide target from above.

thanks and they are fun. they are also easy to hit if you shoot 'em while they are sucking on the slime on the surface. but all in all every rough fish is fun to shoot.
