I'll Never Top This!!

Recommended Posts

Well, I dont post my trips on here very often. I've had quite a few days in the past couple years where I have caught 100+ fish, not to mention the 10.1, 9, and 4 over 8 I've caught in that span. BUT, I figure that today was worthy of posting.

I went to my favorite fishing hole (yeah right, like yall dont know where that is) and got there about noon yesterday. Fished my first spot with only one short fish to show for it. Went out to some humps and ridges I knew about throwing a crankbait. Looked at my graph and finally saw a fish and boom...hooked up. I immediately threw out a marker bouy. I trolled about 50 yards further and hooked up agian. Looked at my graph and I was in 30 FOW and the screen was filled with fish from 30 foot down to the surface. Threw out another bouy and began fishing the two schools. Caught a few on the crankbait, but wasnt what I wanted, so I picked up a **** and started catching fish every cast. I doubled up about 30 times and tripled twice (Now can you figure out what I was throwing?) Ended up catching around 300 fish in 7 hours. My top five went 35lbs. Had a 8.5, two 7's, and two 6's. Oddly enough, about half the big mommas were post spawn and the other half still had eggs. I figured all the big fish had layed by now, but I was wrong apparently. About half the fish I caught were white bass and the other half was black bass. Even got one good striper to top it off (like it needed topping off!!). I've had some absolutely ridiculous days in my life, but nothing that even compares to yesterday. I got a couple pictures taht my aunt took, hope to get them this weekend to post.

If anybody wants a trip...I charge $300 a day. :laugh5:

I'd pay $300 for a 300 fish day (without the rig).

What a great day!

Pic now added. Wish I would have had a camera on the lake to take a picture of the 8.5 and other big fish. I threw back all fish that had eggs and kept those 3 big girls to put in my pond.

There's your new avatar pic!.

Like others have said, it is absolutely ridiculous. I've been on Bass Resource for 3 years and it is the greatest bass catching day I've ever seen.

re: "I'll never top this!"

99.9% of the bass fishing population will never catch >500lbs of bass in one day (seems like a fair assumption, catching 300+ with several in the 6-7lb class). That is an amazing day. Congrats!

I wish I had a picture...heck I wish I had a graph capable of taking screen shots, but all I have is a Eagle Fishmark 320 and a Humminbird 565. Pretty basic stuff, but the Humminbird has a really good sonar. The entire screen was black from the bottom to about 5ft deep in 40 FOW!

I have seen that a couple of times chasing stripers. Big school of baitfish, big school of stripers, and no way to distinguish the two from each other. Those were some pretty good days, once I got my hands to quit shaking and close my mouth. Never have I hit a jackpot on largemouth like that. I do believe I may have wept out loud.
