it weighed 49 pounds. It was the biggest bass I ever caught.
Back from my fly fishing trip to Ohio...awesome trip! I had to stalk this guy for 20 minutes while he bullied other males. I finally got his attention drifting ...more an egg pattern. And strategically for me he wasn't at 100% stamina because of this because if he was I'm not sure I would've won this fight!
caught it on a heavy duty leader and circle hook. Here is the best tip I have for carp at Raystown Lake is always use circle hooks and they will hook them straight ...more in the lip but leave the hook gap and barb exposed in order for it to work. Another tip is fish dough baits,bread balls,and other such things. Also look in coffee run, the resort, and 7 points. Use these tips and you are almost guaranteed to catch over 10 pounders each time.
I couldn't stay away, the crappie were a little deeper so I popped the float off the jig and lift dropped it back to the boat. The super thin no stretch Gliss ...more line helped me miss very few whacks on the slow drop. whacked even more than last time. Size was better too!
