Ben Got His Big One

I fished the Colorado River today with Ben Thompson and his mom Suzanne. The action was hit or miss for most of the day, but we were catching fish. Ben has fished with me a few times in the last couple of years usually with his dad Mike Thompson. Usually Mike caches the fish of the day. Like this one. Today was Ben's turn. We were fishing with an assortment of poppers and divers. Ben had switched to a deer hair diving minnow when he made a cast to a great looking eddy neat the bank He thought that there had to be a fish there, when bam it hit! After a good fight Ben landed his best ever bass. We continued to catch fish sporadically for the rest of the day.
