Details: FreshwaterDrum / Gaspergou with a Rage craw
Caught this giant freshwater drum this morning bass fishing with a t-rigged rage craw. He thumped it hard and and first I thought I had a sharelunker on. I saw the ...more big silver flash and then knew it was a big drum. I bet it weighed about 9-10lbs and is my personal best. Here's the video! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-DGpD42jQAQ
Details: Guadalupe Bass with a Dropshot bold bluegill roboworm
The yearly trip to the hill country is good so far, with 11 bass caught the first evening. The river is flooded and flowing at 5000cfs but fishing docks and near ...more the bank has where I've caught most of my fish. The guadalupe bass at a pound and a half is big for the species but I'm going after the state record. Lost a 3-4 lber that could've been a guad but I'm not sure. Hardest fighting bass imo.
