When this jumbo Oregon native (the steelhead, not the dude!) smashed Ken “Smitty” Smith’s plug, his first thought was “springer.” But then the thick buck jumped and the fight was on!
Smitty was running 10-pound so you can imagine what kind of craziness ensued, but in the end, he was able to subdue the beast. Ken figures that he got a huge helping hand from his dad, who recently passed on and was surely watching the action from above.
As our first entry of the March Hawg of the Month, Smitty will have a chance to win some schwag from the Pautzke Bait Co. If he advances, Ken will get to compete in the Hawg Bowl Playoffs at the end of the year and maybe, just maybe win a trip with Bill Swann of Swanny’s Guided Fishing. Click to ENTER
