1. Personal best this morning. Smashed my finger launching the boat, then found battery was dead for motor. Pull started it & headed out, glad I persevered!

      I don’t know Sammy. was told today that bluegill are spawning now (and I know bass spawn before bluegills) so I’m guessing I caught this bass pre-spawn.

  6. Got this just as I was about to call it a day. Casting topwater lures in and near weed beds along shoreline. Snapped a photo, successfully released the fish back ...more to the water, cast a couple more times and headed home with a smile on. Didn’t have a scale or measuring tape…next time.

Retired, always enjoyed fishing but now I have time to learn some things about lures, weather, gear. Love topwater fishing for bass in local ...more lakes, need to get a boat or kayak to progress further.
