Tom Martin booked Altamont Anglers guide Teo Whitlock for yet another day in pursuit of smallmouth bass, hoping to introduce his fishing buddy Tom Griffies to the superior fishing provided by Altamont Anglers. Unfortunately for him he was side-lined by a family emergency, giving Tom Griffies sole possession of the front and back seats in the boat.
Tom took advantage of the situation, judging from these pictures. Even the approaching full moon doesn't seem to have put the fish off their feed at all.
