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

Nice bass! I fish a swim jig more often than a spinnerbait anymore, with great results. Some sort of "bluegill" is my fav

Swim jigs are the way to go I caught my personal best last year on one which is the fish in my profile picture.


I couldn't even turn that thing!

Nice fish for sure! I have a club tournament this coming Sat. and since the hydrilla is growing good I'm planning on swimming a jig along the outside edges of it. I'll post the results....hopefully!

Looks like you caught the Grand Dame of that little pond. Great job!


All ya have to be, is a little smarter than the bass.

Very good. The biggest bass in Maryland Virginia come from lakes and ponds. All of my families PBS have come from two farm ponds. 4 bass over 10 lbs. I experimented with swimming a jig last spring and had an epic day on the Potomac.
