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
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
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
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.
