Default Lost Largie and a Beer Bottle

Fishing one of my smallie holes upstream of the Rt 55 bridge when I caught this pleasant surprise. A 3.5" Coffee Tube did the trick on this nice (2.5 lb?) Bass. Also scrounged up an old beer bottle for my Brother's collection. On the glass is E. Porter Brewg. Co. Joliet, ILL. I Googled it; 1 of 6 Breweries in Joliet back in the day. Brewed from 1891 till 1920 (Prohibition). So it's probably 100 yrs old.

Nice double.
That bottle is almost a better score than the bass.
