Never thought a little lake, more like a pond would hold a big bass! I was casting a white swim jig, I made a cast, lure hits the water and less than a couple seconds I thought I snagged a stump. Felt movement on the line and set the hook...it felt heavy. After a few seconds of fighting this bass it jumps out of the water....didn't know there were people behind me seeing it all go down. I was astonished when I landed this bass, I'm guessing 5-6 lbs. Wow, that was a few seconds of too much fun! I think what happened is the swim jig landed on top of the bass, I must have thumped the bass on the head and ticked him off to bite...well that's the fishing story I'm sticking with!
I should add, personal best in So Calif
