1. I think all the big ones left for the holidays.

  2. Went back today and I believe I caught my PB bass again. I over stated the length before. Weight is 5lb 6. I will let you judge the length.

    3. Thanks Robert. It was your post that gave me the confidence to try catching her again. I went to the same corner, cast about 6 times with no bites. Moved along the ...more bank and 4 casts later had this one pulling my line.

  3. I came here to share photos and info with fellow anglers. I did not come here to be besieged with commercial advertising. If you like fishing and want to follow ...more me, that is fine. If you are a lure company, I will not accept follow requests.

    1. I do not see Capt M flooding the page with catches to promote his business. Even one or two posts per trip would be fine, but I see some charters posting a dozen ...more pics for each trip out and making each post an advertisement. He does not repeatedly request to follow me like some custom lure people do.

      Some pics are great. A little banter and conversation, also great. I love seeing pics and stories of catching from all the different places.
    2. I hear you Tim but I kinda like Captain Morris he catches a lot of big fish

  4. So the whopper plopper is doing so well I ordered a monkey butt in the 110 size. Went back to the same pond and in about the same place I caught a 2 pounder on the ...more 90, today I caught what is likely a 4 or 5 pounder on the 110. Holding her by the mouth as high as I could, her tail came down to my armpit. Roughly a 25 inch bass. A PB for me!!!! I am getting a fanny pack to carry my camera and scale from now on.

  5. Anyone following me knows I have few bass catches. I am just getting the hang of it, but cannot get up early. Anyhow, I kept seeing Julie post bass on her whopper ...more plopper and had to get one. Just came back from a local stone quarry pond. Never seen anything big come out of it yet, but an hour of casting my new lure, produced 5 bass averaging a pound or so each. Now I am ready to go to the lake.

    1. Thanks Steve. I only have one reliable fishing partner and he is a crappie man all the way. So i am learning as I go.

  6. Water is down to 66 and muddy from the last two hurricanes. Still managed to get a few nice ones with minnows.

  7. Anchored off one of my favorite brush piles. 2 bass, a fat white perch, and about a dozen crappie. Funniest thing was all the fish were caught in a space the size ...more of a wheelbarrow. Fishing about 8 feet deep and no bites outside the one small sweet spot to the left of my marker.

      Nice SLAB
  8. Slow day fishing, but the size made up for it. These are just 2 of my catch. Nobody at home so I had to take a selfie.

  9. A friend dipped four little fish from her pond. They are about a 1 inch long. I do not have a good enough camera for taking pictures of baby fish in muddy pond water, ...more but I am uploading 2 of the best ones. Looking with the naked eye, they have the typical bass dorsal fin and what appears to be a lateral line. Just so happens, I went to the fish truck today to buy minnows and a dozen bass fingerlings. The truck driver said they look like 2 week old bass. BUT, bass only spawn in the spring. So he cannot figure out why I have 2 week old bass in October. Any suggestions from my friends here?

      I'm no expert, but up here in Wi I've seen fall spawns, or at least spawning behavior, with Smallmouth and Largemouth bass. Seems like it happens when spring ...more conditions were poor. We experienced a very cold spring in Wi followed by a rapid warm up so our bass had a short spawning period in terms of ideal water temps... so in theory, they might be "trying again". Who knows?
  10. Had some minnows left over this morning. Caught a dozen or so crappie at a private pond, then the bite quit. Went to Riles creek bridge and in 30 minutes had 2 channel ...more cats and 1 largemouth. Both cats ruined my 1/0 wire hooks so had to re-rig both times. Had to rush home and get them in the pond. Them cats are hardy, but the bass will stress out and die in a bucket. Hated to leave when they were biting so well. The fish truck is coming to Salisbury tomorrow, but fingerling bass may not fare well with all the big cats already in the pond.
