Was fishing with my uncle about 10 years ago...He hooked into a decent size large mouth. We were fishing in a damned up cove. Suddenly see huge swirl----it was a god damn smallie----Coming after the large mouth. My uncle immediately grabs my pole, tosses it out, and sure enough this dude smashes it. He fought that damn fish for about two-three minutes....Hauled in a 5.1 lb smallie. Those fish are crazy aggressive, and very predatory. Never seen anything like that since. Crazy.
