  5. 3 lb. Largemouth Bass with a chigger craw crazy legs

  6. This was a couple weeks ago. It was the last and biggest fish that day. For a while I was catching one every other cast but they were a little smaller, still tons ...more of fun though.

    2 lb. 8 oz. Largemouth Bass with a Blk\Watermelon Red plastic worm

  7. This was the first fish of the day. Smacked it about 12 ft. off the dock I was fishing from, saw it all happen right in front of me. I don't generally get strikes ...more that close. Very fun.

      Awesome ! What time of day is best, do you think for fishing? Anybody fish in the evening?
  8. About 48" fish, 5 minute fight on 12# Fluoro, 48" might be a generous guess, but I got home and measured myself hip 2 hip and its roughly 17". I think ...more I could fit close to 3 wide if you start from the tail. The more I look at the picture I think maybe 42"-44" might be more accurate. Whatever size it was it definitely came with an adrenaline rush. Demolished my bait as soon as it hit the water.
