Photo of the Day – February 18, 2013

Today’s photo comes to us from Joe Ware of Corpus Christi, and that’s a 20-inch smallmouth bass he’s hoisting in the air. Ware caught the not-so-small smallie last May on the lower Devils River while on a guided kayaking trip with Texas fishing guide Shane Davies ( According to Ware, the two were sight casting from atop a boulder when they saw this hawg of a smallmouth swim by. He quickly cast a wacky rigged worm near the fish, and it turned to snatch it up. Ware says this bronzeback was one of several smallmouth bass caught that trip, which had the two paddle an unconventional route from Lake Amistad’s Rough Canyon Marina north to the mouth of the Devils River. Lake Amistad is located in the southwestern part of the state approximately five miles north of Del Rio, Texas. (Photo courtesy of Joe Wade)

      I don’t know. I think the fish is prettier.
