I have recently tried fishing a new lake for me. The fishing has been beyond anything I could have imagined. My first trip I landed 11 bass with 4 of them being ...more 17 inches or longer. The second trip blew my mind. I broke my former record for bass caught in a single day which was 16. It is now 20. Seven of those 20 were 17 inches or longer which is a new record for me. I also have a new personal best bass. It measured 22 inches with a 15 inch girth. It was caught with a live bluegill. The third trip yielded 17 bass. Five of those were 17 inches and above. All of these were caught from the bank. I didn't have anyone to photograph my 22 incher and couldn't get the entire fish in the photo but here it is.
