Loughran broke the ice

Ed Loughran has finally broken the ice. After hooking up and losing a fish, he hooked into one in pure smallmouth fashion did not come to the boat easy.

Loughran actually has his hand on this fish several times and it jumped away from him.

He finally got it in and a few minutes later landed one about 1 1/2 pounds. He’s got two that loiter around the 5-pound mark.
