Best Lead Photo Ever in a Fishing Magazine?

We got our October 2011 issue of the FLW Outdoors Magazine – Bass Edition. This issue is the Forrest Wood Cup Champion issue, so there is a lot of great photo and news coverage of the tournament from Ouachita Lake near Hot Springs, Ark. But there are also some great departments and features in this issue. But what really caught our eye was the feature story on page 70. It’s a great piece on combating the problem with an overabundance of shad on many fisheries in the fall. But the photo is what caught our eye! We know Ramie Colson and this photo really cracked us up.

Kudos to Ramie and FLW Outdoors for having a great sense of humor and injecting some fun into a fishing article!
