  2. I only caught 7 bass on live bait today. Pretty slow for the gills. I caught these two exactly 58 minutes apart. When I measured and weighed, I thought it was a ...more coincidence that they were identical length and weight. After I got home, I studied the pics a little closer..... SAME FISH! Greedy little devil!

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
