NO FEAR! Bass Fishin' July 29th

Recommended Posts

Headed out today knowing full well what we were about to fish in. It was POURING rain, it couldn't have possibly been raining any harder. Backing up to the launch we couldn't see out the windshield of the truck. Soaked the second the doors were open.

 

BAM! The boat was in the water and we were fishing. There was wind, tons of rain and thunder, some lightning... we pounded the lake to death and caught a lot of small bass. One encounter with a maybe 3.5lber on a buzzbait and a small pike but no huge fish to be in awe of today. As luck would have it the only time it wasn't raining that I caught a bass was when I caught my smallest of the day so that was the only pic I got. Buddy Sean got a little better one pic'd.

 

Spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and grubs were the weapons of choice.

 

I can't believe anyone would sit inside looking out at that rain coming down. That makes me run to the lake! And to end it.. the evening turned out pretty nice actually.

Sean's 2 pounder which was probably the big fish of the day

That's my other boat MTP.. 9' "Bass Hound". And yes the Filth Hound is still alive and well. Actually I got a trailer for it now. Just a little tougher to launch the aluminum than the bass hound... and the 14 footer isn't really necessary for the lake we were fishing (really more of a pond).

 

There was some lightning but nothing too bad.

 

And I'm known for demolishing two Classic triple combos in a sitting! LOL I was takin' it easy today!

Hey Rich....

thanks

I'd pretty much live and die in my 14 footer. I don't know if I'll ever "upgrade" to anything bigger. It handles everything pretty well .. since I'm not really a deep water trolling type of guy it works just great.

 

If there's relatively easy access to the pond I'm fishing, I'd much rather throw the tinny in.

 

However for those hard to reach places where you gotta carry or drag the boat quite a ways, the 9 footer is best.

 

Actually thinking about getting a flat back canoe instead of the bass hound though. Or keeping all 3 boats. lol

I've got a 12 footer as a back up too.... I would never sell it.

Easy to carry and it fits in the back of my truck B)
