  5. Skunked at Briery Creek Lake out near Farmville VA today. Got there in heavy fog that lifted after noon. Heavy lay downs, standing timber, and a huge carp we scared ...more off at the boat dock. Awesome 800 acre lake, originally stocked with Florida largemouth, if you enjoy heavy cover...EVERYWHERE πŸ˜‚

      No luck for me here this past weekend but husband caught the tiniest little bass and then a 3 1/2. Got the boat breached on a couple logs...that was cool! πŸ€”πŸ€” ...more Not an easy lake to navigate through...trees literally everywhere, 2 howling kids, while simultaneously trying to fish...🀦

    Largemouth Bass with a river2 sea whopper plopper

  9. Had a Plopper tied on thinking I would toss it shallow on the way back to the launch at sunset. Then a pod of killer bass started chasing bait around me 20' ...more of water so I started throwing it, had several strike but miss. This guy was not so lucky.
