Ice Out Nj Slob And A Few More!!!!

Recommended Posts

My friend Jim wanted to fish today so we met at a local spot that I usually do well at from shore after ice out.....Met up at noon and instantly started slamming the crappies again......don't get me wrong, they are fun to catch, esp. the size we were catching and on 3/8 oz swimjigs, but I'm after Mr Bass.....specifically a spring pig.......we kept it moving all day long, fighting the wind which at times was brutal, caught a few smaller bass but nothing great....Jim wanted to leave but I convinced him to stay for one more hour where we were getting the slabs....4th cast in, I felt my jig get inhaled and set the hook and rod bent in half....I was fishing w/ a 6'9" Avid MLXF......got the fattie in, weighed her on Jim's Boga grip and a solid 5.8.......Fat stomach and I should have taken a pic on it's side for my own reference..catch, photo, release.......All in all, lesson learned for my friend....Persistence pays off always, on and off the water ...... a few from today.....
