Another PB Largie for me today !

Recommended Posts

Went out for an hour this morning....about 8:30 am

First cast using a "glow in the dark Scum Frog" on top of the weeds and lily pads...

 

Swipe and a miss....

waited about 10 seconds and twitched the line slightly...

 

KAPOW ! :o

I think it weighed about 3 or 4 lbs... was 19" long though.

( better get a weigh scale soon... geesh, how much more gear do I REALLY need? lol)

I coulda stuffed a softball down its mouth.. :o

I had to use the camera on my Blackberry for these... as my regular camera was "buzzing" when i tried to use it... musta got wet the other day when I had some good fishing too :(

 

 

I was fishing the shaded side of the lake....and close to shore ( maybe 20 feet off shore when it hit)

 

Stayed for an hour longer and had three more "swipe and a miss" :P

 

Good way to start my day today.

Looks like you're getting your system down. Very nice bass. Most of the summertime 19"ers I've caught have been in the low to mid 3 lb range, but they are usually much thinner than yours. As thick as that fish is, I'd bet it's just under 4.

I can't say enough about these "scum frogs" for top water bass...

 

So far, I have caught fish on the black / white / and Glow in the dark colours..

 

The bodies on these are pretty soft, so I think the fish can actually CHOMP it pretty good, which "almost" means a hook-set IF I wait until i FEEL it on the line...

 

This type of fishing has opened up a whole new world of fishing to this "boat-less" fisherman....

I have been following the topics on the board here for people looking at buying their first boat.. ;)

 

This fall should see some good deals on small boat/motor /trailer combos in my "starter" price range.

 

The only concern I have right now about this bass fishing is how hard I am setting the hook versus trout fishing this fall :unsure:

 

thanks for all the support on here everyone...
