Tater sure can.... ;)

Tater and I were on "the pier of choice" today,and what a day,rain and all... I had two sharks eat my junk all day,the only runs for me.. :rolleyes: All was fine though,cause the feeshgods were on the lookout for Tater!!

We were all laid back,with not a bump for quite a while.. Tater's rod kinda bounced,and did a couple of klicks.. He made a dad proud and listened to everything I told him about a hookset.. The boy pointed that rod at him,and let em havit!! Then fought that fish like a pro,putting plenty of heat where needed..






We had to pull up one of the benches so Tater could get em to the net,but for a short rascal,he did it without a hitch.. Here's a 43 and a half forklength drummie that Tater caught,for his first big pier drum ever!! :)



There were two others decked,one by Zingpow,and one by Pat.. Pat's fish is the first I've seen decked on a pier with NO SPOTS!! I've seen a couple of juvenile fish without spots,but never an adult until now... Pretty cool..

Way to go, Tater!!!

That's a fish you and your dad will remember forever.

Even if it had spots. :D

It's nice to have watched you become a better angler over the years. There were quite a few of us who had feeling you'd get yer first big one off a pier this Fall.

And I'll now be taking bets on how long it takes for you to get to 1,000.

Congrats again, bud.

Tater, I was there last fall when you lost your first pier drum after a long fight and I know it broke your heart. Glad you now have one under your belt. Congratulations to you both.
I don't remember meeting you at that time on NHP,but if you were there then you defenatly know how happy Tater was this time round... Not a time goes by pierfishing that the youngen doesn't bring up that "agony of defeat",and how he was going to overcome it... I also remember the ones I lost moreso than the ones I caught,except for the first one I caught,remember that one like it was yesterday... ;)
