[CG :2 Line\Matt Peterson\WINNER!]
But our winner tonight is a Memorial Day weekend Matt will never forget. Matt was fishing with his two young boys Ace and Rusty and their grandpa Bart when the weather started to move in and quickly turned from rain to snow. Matt took one last cast with a countdown rapala before they packed it up to head home when saw a silver flash two feet from shore. After a 10 minute battle Matt was able to haul ashore this thirty one inch, thirteen pound brown trout on six pound test line. Matt says it was a great day, but nothing compared to taking your kids fishing. A great picture, even better story Matt, one that netted you our big prize for having our...snapshot of the week.
