Big mouth on this one. Was between 2-3 lbs, but it’s head looked like a 4-pounder. Biggest of four on a slower, windy morning.
It was a slow spring but an awesome mid-summer and fall. The two largest bass of the season for me came within days of each other at the same lake, both just short ...more of 4 1/2 lbs. Other highlights came within a three week period in July when I caught six 3 1/2 pounders (all exactly 3 lbs 8 oz) at four different lakes (2 at Presque Isle, 2 at Lake Arthur, 1 at Chautauqua, and 1 at Cross Creek). It was a good year, and I am already counting the days until spring. Thanks to my Fishidy friends/connections Rick, Mark, Jim, and Drew, who have taught me a lot about fishing in Western PA. It was good to meet them on the water this year.
Slow day, and I tweaked my back. I was lucky that Jim had some ibuprofen. This was the only fish I caught today. There were a lot of tentative bites. It was good ...more to see so many Fishidy friends on the water—Rick, Jim, Drew, and Mark. It was a beautiful day, even though there weren’t many fish. Also thanks to the generous couple, who helped us load our kayaks and gear.
It was great to see Mark Merlin and Jim Holland this morning. Mark was hauling in hawgs with his spinner bait. Jim caught a four pounder. I had my best day on Lake ...more Arthur. Twenty-seven bass, all but a few were between 2 and 3 1/2 lbs. Four were over three pounds. This was the largest at 19 3/4 in. and 4 lbs 5 oz. Awesome day!
