I hate to brag, but I did predict that Canton Lake might be a hot spot for fishing for hybrids and sand bass this weekend.
Well, crappie guide Donnie Jinkens’interrupted my son’s third birthday party with a phone call on Sunday afternoon with a big fish story. A Canton angler had landed a hybrid that was just a few ounces shy of the state record, weighing more than 23 pounds.
“It’s a beautiful fish,” Jinkens said.
Donnie, who owns the Canton Motel and is the official lake record keeper on Canton Lake, is emailing me a photo, which will likely be in next Sunday’s Oklahoman on the Outdoors page. Stay tuned.
