    39.0 Largemouth Bass with a swim jig

  5. One of EIGHT! They were on some sort of absolutely insane feeding friendzy! This entire area of the lake was filled all over with boils, splashes, baitfish going ...more nuts. I caught 2 on a lipless, 2 on a squarebill, and 4 on an aglia long. Never caught any fish on the lipless, or squarebill till that day, and never caught a hybrid bass either! Insanity! Biggest one that I weighed was 6lb 7oz!
