Sat 11/7 bassin ... WOW is all i can say !

Let me start this post by saying THANK YOU to Duane !!!!
 
 
So me and Duane spent a few weeks chasing smallies around on res boat and last week he mentioned an out of the way spot that he has landed a few monster bass. Just hearing those 2 words together really got my attention ... so i'm like when we going  ??? LOL
 
 
We made plans during the week, even though it was in the 20's last night we figured lets start a little later. So we hit the water a little after 10am. I was all dressed up with the fleece jeans, had gloves and winter hat in the bag, but it was very nice out for mid 40's. Lots of sun even though it got a little windy.
 
 
 
So on to fishing, Duane bangs out a quick couple avg guys on the fluke ...
 

 
 
I chuck the monster swimbait a few times and pick one avg guy up. We continue along with a few shorties here and there. At this point i have switched to the jig and the fish were jumping all over it !!
 
 
 
 
 
I LOVE jig fishing

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Finally a nice one joins us in the boat 4.0lbs even
 

 
 
 
Since they were liking the jig and Duane never really fished one, he figured why not try it out ?!?
 
Didn't take him long and was hammering out some cookie cutters like these ...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
1st jig fish

 
 
 
 
 
 
Getting fatter and a cool shot of jig in his face

 
 
 
 
 
Now we were having a blast, nice weather lots of active fish ... however Duane did tell me NOT to forget the scale and camera !!! Boy what a great suggestion .... because things were about to get AWESOME !!!
 
 
 
 
 
I get a solid wack and know right a way this fish has some weight ... see a nice solid flash in the water, we didn't have a net so i was a little worried about losing it. I get a hand on it and i am stoked !!
 
 
 
 
 
She hit the scales at 6lb 5oz  
 

 
 
We were very pleased now. So we keep plugging along and this pig joins us ...
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Yes even bigger  6lb 14oz  baby !!!!
 

 
 
 
I have never landed two 6+ in one day ... or even one year !!
 
 
 
WAIT, not over yet ... i added another one !!! Are you frigging kidding me !!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
6lb 2oz !!

 
 
 
 
 
In between all these lunkers we were still landing a number of solid 2-3lbers ... we never counted
but boated well over 30 fish ... in just 4 hours.
 
 
 
 
Duane just couldn't hook up with a bigger one but i could tell he was really liking the jig fishing
 
So we keep pressing on ...
 
.
.
 
 
 
UNTIL THIS GIRL took his jig !!!!
We saw lots of body and realized thig was now the best of the day ... definately 7+ !!!
 
 
.
.
 
 
 
 
 
7lb 9oz SLOB !!!!!!!

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
We ended up banging out a few more avg ones and called it a day.
 
Hands down the best ever day of bass fishing for me !!!
 
I am still grinning from ear to ear.

    Dude I had a blast today. Out of all the times I have fished that spot I have never had the luck that we had today. I knew the place was capable of some big fish and I had seen a couple, but in no way when I said don't forget the scale and camera did I have this in mind.  What an awesome day, I've been smiling all night and am thinking of going back in the A.M.

    HOLY FRIGGIN CHIT MAN!   Wow thats some awesome fishing for any time of year but in November?? Off the charts. I guess thats why these two guys are the only anglers to win a prestigious Snyder's Lake Invitational Championship.  Great pics too you guys, very impressive bucketheads. 

     ICE GODS I BESEECH THEE.. LET THERE BE COLD!

    What do you use there Brian--- a 1/2 oz jig with a craw trailer?  I'll have to learn that from you sometime, I never seem to catch any with those things. Add to the list of many things I don't catch fish with.

    Thats it NYY. I too have never had any luck with a jig at all up until today. But when BB pulled out 4 quick 2-3 pounders to my zero I had to do something. Its a great technique thats very effective, obvioulsly!

    AWESOME !!!!

    You guys did great and what pigs !! A new Lunkervulle ???
    Duane I don't blame you 1 bit for going back and looking over & over at those pic's. I always look at that bass I iced last year and man I sure wish we had a scale. At first I called it 5lbs then 6 & now I feel it was well in the 7 range..

    Hope you don't mind but I gave your pic's a little light so we can really see that beast !!!

    Wow is right BB and Duane!!! Looks like you got a great LMB fishery there. Supposed to be 66 tomorrow. And I already put my boat away. 

    When hell freezes over, I'll fish there too.

    I think your successes are even more impressive since this has been arguably the worst week of fishing this year for me.   I put in several days on the water on local lakes and have very little to show for it.
     
    One walleye the other night on Snyders.  And one tiny pickerel on Saturday on Glass...
     
    I have lost some fish this past week- but for the most part it has been miserable.
     
    I was actually going to post a thread about my "Worst Week Ever" until I read your post reagrding your BEST trip.
     
    Way to rub it in, guys...   
     
    It won't be long until Duane has a Lunkerville sticker on the back of his truck too.  AWESOME FISH!

    I hear you Jimmy, I took the kayak out in the creek and on the river yesterday hoping to catch a smallie.. nadda.. Then figured I might as well break (almost did) in the spey rod on another smallie creek, nadda again... Thank god for winterloggers & football.

    nice Bass pics Brian !!! Largemouth bass have there distinct largemouth bass smell..ever notice that scent? Not quite as fishy stinking as a big slimmy brown or bow. I use to have access to private ponds in jersey for those size..it was fun using the plastics and rebel pop'rs cheers!

    Not to mention I was the one fighting the wind with the trolling motor putting BB in the spots the big boys were so he could catch all of the fish before I could even cast!  Dont worry Brian, just my way of dealing with being out fished on my pond

    HAHAHA good one BB. Eh its ok, I'll sit in the motor spot and catch the big one. After all you were kind enough to row all over the res so the least I can do is work the trolling motor
