Some Bass And A Big Bonus!
Posted April 23 2012 - 09:48 PM
Didn't get a weight on her but probably in the 4.5lb range. I couldn't weigh her because I broke my scale trying to weigh this guy. Using a 7' 1" Rage M/H with a 200E7 and 14lb Vicious Elite fluoro and one my homemade jigs in a 3/8oz size in Big "O" craw color. Didn't get her off the bottome of the boat before the scale chain broke but I've caught enough of them to feel comfortable calling her 40lbs.
She wrecked my jig! It looks tiny in that huge mouth!
Caught a pretty decent smallie on one of my jigs in watermelon color.
It was a pretty steady day with the fish catching but just lots of small ones. I ended up with 45 bass and several other bonus fish. 2012 bass count=788

Nice. Makes me wonder why such a large fish would hit a small, by comparasion, jig than wait around for a larger meal. I guess she was hungry.
I'm guessing it just hit her on the nose and all she had to do was suck it in. I've caught a couple of flatheads on jigs before but this one was twice as big as any other I've caught on bass tackle.

Have not tried it out yet. I'm about to start sending my E7's to get supertuned one at a time and it will be standing in for them while they're getting worked on since I don't have a rod for it just yet. Think it's going to be my frogging reel.
Nice! That just needs some hushpuppies and slaw next to it! Have you tried the Revo out?
Took about 10 minutes to get ahold of her and she was turned back loose right after the pictures. We were wondering why we weren't getting any bass in that normally productive spot, I'm guessing that she had something to do with that
How long did that take to get in the boat? Did you keep it?
