      sweet hat and bass! LGR!!!!
  2. First bass of the year on my 3rd cast of the year. Let's get it going!

  3. And my second fish on a drop shot. Another pickerel, 2 pound 8 ounces. The snakes were chewing up my KVD Dream Shots like bubble gum.

  4. My first fish using the drop shot. Just a pickerel, though.

  7. My last fish of the trip with only minutes to spare. I would lose a biggun in a laydown later.

      I understand, bucket fisherman are the bane of my existence.

      Glad to hear, I see so many dead fish on here sometimes it gets me a little pissed. My bad.

      Uh, there is no blood, dude. It was hooked an a small trokar wacky worm hook and the picture was taken with a cheap disposable camera. I'm totally for being ...more a "catch and release champion" being that I'm an advocate of it myself, as stated in my profile.

      All the blood says differently. He probably didn't make it long even if you did release him.

      I didn't kill it. I release everything.

      Too bad you killed that beautiful fish. Catch and Release is the only way to go.

  10. Even the little ones deserve appreciation. If you saw the thick laydown you would kiss it too.

Grew up fishing for bass in Southern New Hampshire. Only catch and release. Lucky to have a job that allows for the time and freedom to get a ...more lure out on the water quite often. I need active fishing. I'm no beach chair bait fishermen.
