Jacob: "The Trout Killer"
Meet Jacob. This young man is a lean, mean fishin' machine!
When you see someone as young as Jacob showing off a speckled trout, you probably think he had a little help from mom or dad to land that fish, but in this case, you'd be wrong!
Jacob picked his own lure and color (a plum/chartreuse Trout Killer), rigged it up on an 1/8-ounce jighead, cast it out and hooked, fought and landed this yellowmouth all by himself.
Way to go, Jacob!
Dad tells us that after bagging this speck, Jacob is hooked on fishing with artificial baits. And he even used his Christmas money to buy a few packs of TTF plastics. Sounds like Jacob has a lot more fish in his future.
At TTF there's nothing we love to see more than kids enjoying fun times on the water with their family members. Thanks for sharing this picture with us, Dad!
One last note: Although we labeled Jacob as "The Trout Killer", we didn't mean that literally. He actually released the keeper speck in the photo. So not only can this little guy catch fish—he's a conservationist, too!
