The Ge­or­gia Grandma

Field and Stream - - ON THE COVER -

“Grandma is a true gi­ant who lives around an old aban­doned dock in a nar­row cove on a pub­lic Ge­or­gia lake. She’s tor­tured me since 2014. On our first en­counter, I hooked her with a 9-inch Bull Shad and lost her at the boat. Dur­ing that bat­tle she lost a chunk of skin off the top of her head, leav­ing a very dis­tinct white mark. I have seen this fish at least 50 times since, so now she is ed­u­cated. Last year I walked the woods in full camo to get a dif­fer­ent cast­ing an­gle. I even de­signed a new bait just for her. On the sec­ond cast, she nailed it. Un­for­tu­nately, I wasn’t in a boat where I could con­trol her, and she wrapped me around the lead dock pil­ing and broke me off. An­other heart­break! Guess what my 2017 New Year’s res­o­lu­tion is?”
