Roughed up hand vs. just thumb = big bass.

Me and a buddy fished a known big bass lake Fri night hoping to hook a hawg. It was very windy and only slowed some at about 3 am. I almost struck out but managed this spotted bass on my night time spinnerbait. Operating my 10' bass raider at night with 18 mph winds takes some considerable concentration. We did find wind breaks in the back of coves and that helped. 

 

My buddy did boat a 4 1/2 and I was pumped for him.

Good weather and a few extra days off that resulted in extra time on the water this weekend produced good results.

Caught my PB last week while fishing the Bays of Grand Traverse.  Ran into KVD, who had Johnny Morris from BPS and Truex Jr from NASCAR in his boat.

Caught a few dinks burning a chatterbait back to me, so I stayed with that pattern and stuck this girl.  6/16/2019.

Quick stop after work on a nice, cloudy morning. Got this little guy to smash a Pad Crasher through a hole in the grass.

story time

 

went out on a local rezzie with my brother in law. it was my first outing with a new fish finder, chirp 54cv. the old one (which i kept on the boat) is a humminbird 100sx; it is quite the jump. i cannot believe the resolution of the new one it is kind of crazy to me.

 

so we started marking fish at a point that drops quickly to 40' and im pulling up smallies with drop shot at a decent clip and my brother is throwing squarebills and shaky craws to shore.  we are seeing them in the 10' to 15' depth range.

 

my drop shot rod is a fenwick elite tech with a 13 fishing prototype x 2.0 spinning reel. it is strung up with power pro 15lb main line and i use seaguar finesse fluorocarbon as a leader via double uni knot.  i have been using the 8.4 lb finesse line in this application without a problem for a good while now but recently wanted to try the 6.2 lb. it was apparent when tying this smaller line on as a leader that the fidelity and strength of the line between the two was very different.

 

in a moment i had a fish on that was easily the biggest fish i have ever felt on the end of my line in a fresh water scenario. in that same moment i did not recall the switch to lighter line.  it went something like, feel bite, set hook, got two or three cranks and the fish took off like a bluefish.  took some line, then some more, then broke off.  tears may have been shed and i told my brother that this incident would cause night terrors. in retrospect im beating myself up over not having the presence of mind to loosen the drag. 

 

i did check the drag before the very first cast and it felt fine. this reel however has a very unique brake system. i understand that im typing this out to cope and shift responsibility and accountability. BUT there really is something different about the drag on this reel than i am used to, coming from low end pfluegers and clearance combos. it engages on a scale, like it has more resistance as more line is taken. amateur but frustrating. and it hurts. i can see, feel and taste the awe of boating whatever that was. the excitement is all there but instead of reality it exists in an imaginary place and time that is hollow and empty. i never want to make a mistake like this again!

 

a moment after this ordeal (maybe a minute) my brother pulled this 4 and a half pound chain pickerel to the boat. i joked to check it for jewelry but i knew in my heart that was not the fish that was on my line.

 

somewhat slightly redeeming to get a really nice fish so soon after a heartbreaking loss.

Been a tough few weeks that culminated tues. When I dropped two 4+lb. Fish before I could boat them. Undeterred I headed out this morning knowing i had 2 hrs. Before heavy rain/t-storm threat moved through. Got 1 on a buzzbait and 5 on a spinnerbait  with the best at 4-12. Headed back out after the storm went thru at another spot for 3 more hrs. Got 5 with the best at 5-5 on an old school moss mouse.

Been a couple weeks since I was last out. Vacation. Crappy weather. Work. Park rangers.

Finally stretched the string a bit this evening though.

Pop . . . pop . . . pop . . . 

 

This smallmouth, a tad under 4 lbs., has got a Duo Realis Popper 64 hanging from its lip.

#lastcast #noskunks

 

Fished all around the tiny pond I was fishing for an hour or so without any luck, while a fly fisherman was camping out at the one corner- with all sorts of current, temperature and O2 breaks- that I really wanted to fish.

 

I decided to wait until he was done, and then I waited, and then I waited some more.

 

Finally got tired of waiting, so I went up and asked if he'd mind if I made a few casts. He didn't, so I made my five or six casts, caught and released this bass, thanked him, and left.
