    5 lb. 2 oz. Largemouth Bass with a square bill

    1. Good job Shawn!
    2. It is nice down here when the weather permits. It gets rough pretty quick. I thought it might be getting muddy up north with the rain we have been getting. I have ...more been fishing deep drops when I can get out on the main lake.
    3. I was raised in Pineland.. I haven't fished Brookeland in a long time would be sweet.. nice water down there
    4. sorry to get back so late on the water up north is muddy or not...my phone is about had it...I went up north today...don't go for now..its muddy as ever.. we ...more didn't catch a fish at all in the river.. was lucky enough to pull 9 keepers today on the main lakes edge with blue and black sinkos

      There you go Shawn, Nice one!!
    7. Thanks everyone!
    8. Thanks Kenneth! Robert the yellow magic is a popper not a Whopper plopper, they have been turning up there nose at the Whopper plopper. They have been wanting something ...more worked slow and not so much noise. Sometimes these bass will make you scratch your head.

  3. Caught some good ones on KVD 2.5 in baby bass color, biggest 4lb 4oz. They were all CPR'd.

    4 lb. 4 oz. Largemouth Bass with a square bill

    1. Nice work Shawn
    2. Kenneth Olivo 0
      Nice catch!
    3. Chris you are absolutely right. I also wear sun gloves. I can't stress enough protect yourself from the sun rays. Skin cancer is no joke.
    4. since i've discovered the performance gear like the head/neck cover you're wearing the heat doesn't slow me down at all! make sure you've drank ...more enough water and have cool water with you and something with electrolytes and dunk that performance gear in the water, ring it out, put it back on...instant air conditioning!
    5. Sounds like a fun day. Yes, that heat has slowed down my fishing also.
    6. Looks like a good day Shawn! 👍👍👍
    7. Early and late of course is best, the heat is starting to be tough!

  6. All my fishing friends, be careful out there if you are flipping in the bushes. This guy almost paid me a visit. I was looking down where I was flipping my creature ...more bait and this guy was about two feet from me. My son noticed it just in the nick of time.

Fish for mostly largemouth but enjoy catching crappie in the summer time. Really anything that tugs on the other end of the line is fun to catch.

Fishing Favorites

  • Species Largemouth and crappie
  • Waterway Big Sam and Toledo Bend
  • Lure C-rig is my fav, then crankbaits, shakey head jigs, football jigs and senkos. I am learning to fish deep structure more. Still working on that first ten pounder. Personal best is an 8.3lb.
