Get The Sink Tip Ready

On the Prairie Ocean not far from Blue is the Lake of the Arbuckles. Those who fish Arbuckle regularly believe that the next Oklahoma State Record Largemouth may very well come from the waters of Arbuckle. If any doubt ever persisted to this notion, angler Allen Gifford put all that doubt to rest this past week.

Gifford landed a 14 lb. 8 ounce largemouth while leisurely fishing on a Wednesday afternoon. His trophy was just three ounces short of the state record.

Gifford and his fish were the feature of Ed Godfrey's Outdoors Column in this weeks The Oklahoman.

So my fellow brothers and sisters of the angle, it might be worth our time to be thinking sink tip, Deceivers, Clousers, Crawdads, and larger bait imitations. Oh, a boat will be a big help too.

Got my sink lines ready.
