North Texas angler and LSC contributor, Mike Whitacre sent us these photos taken at Lake O.H. Ivie in Central, Texas. On this particular trip, he brought along his brother-in-law, Barry Kille, who had a monster day when he caught not one, but two 10+ pound LMB.
The story, as told by Mike, goes like this…
I took these photos last week at Lake O.H. Ivie with my brother-in-law Barry Kille. He caught a 11.5 pound fish and within an hour he caught another at over 10 pounds. Both were caught on topwater lures. I have been fishing with Barry since he was 12. We fished together until he joined the U.S. Air Force in 1993.
He was a security specialist in the Air Force and met his wife while deployed in Saudi Arabia in 1995 (she was deployed there at the same time). Barry is a 2 time vet from both gulf wars, and he won the Bronze Star on his last deployment.
Thanks, Mike, for the great photos….please keep them coming.
