This week's Archers Alley "Catch of the Week" comes to us from Max Robertson, of Decatur!
Max & his dad, Joe, were out doing some fishing at Lake Decatur on Max's 13th birthday when he hooked into this 7-pound walleye!! Joe told Max he would get it mounted, but Max had a better idea! He took the walleye to Joann at Mike's Tackle World as a "Get Well Soon" gift....she loved it!! They were so touched by Max's kindness that they posted about it on their Facebook page.
Jim Garrett at G&G Outdoors saw that post, and reached out to get connected with Max. Jim wanted to take the young man fishing. According to Jim, they got together about a week later, and decided the plan was to catch Max's new personal best crappie... Mission Accomplished!!
Max has a new PB white crappie out of Lake Decatur that weighed in at 1.56 pounds, and measured 15-inches long! Jim says they caught over 20 keepers on their trip, but Max released them all to be caught again! They also have another trip booked to go find another PB!
Congrats to Max on the new PB!! We'll hear the story from Max & Joe on this weekend's show! Plus, Jim shares his perspective in our CIO Fishing Report this week!
