“Our First Walleye”
Photo submitted by Preston Marcelo Pagat
User Description: It was in the mid thirties and the wind was blowing 10 to 15 mph but my 9 year old Brandon just had to try out his new baitcaster. So we bundled up and headed to the spillway. As I was rigging up my pole he hooked up this nice walleye after just five casts. Just look at the smile on his face and you know exactly how he feels about his 22 inch walleye!

“Catch and Release Snook”
Photo submitted by vpolidoro
User Description: Catch and release only on the West Coast of Florida, but this snook was way outside the slot limit in any case. 40 inches, 13 pounds, caught with a soft plastic swim lure. Considered a lure change when she made a pass so I stayed with it. Five minutes later she hooked up. Good decision! Release was vigorous after a few strokes.

“Opening Day Buck”
Photo submitted by ZachW
User Description: Opening day of the 2012 bow season, I was hunting over a food plot. This buck came in from behind with another smaller buck, he was cruising pretty good so I stoped him with a bleat at 45 yards, and let one fly. The rage passed through clean and he went down in 80 yards.

“Two and a Half Generations”
Photo submitted by crosbychief
