Got out with a grade school buddy I have known since the 3rd grade. We struggled but still caught about 30 bass over two days. IMG_4618.jpg.0f321e343da15b1b4a8f9c6078ecc010.jpgIMG_4612.jpg.77ef5864f11197b6c8b02d54f2dfe181.jpg

Those are some tanks y'all!  Beautiful fish and good memories with old friends.  Couldn't ask for a better way to spend time.

I had the same unit!  Rigged up to use in my canoe.  It was better than nothing, for sure.  But when we got the little bass boat I upgraded to a Garmin Echomap UHD 93sv.  It was like going from a musket to an AR-15!  lol

Had my boat in for service today. I was able to fish for a couple of hours when it was finished up.  I got on some ice cold giants.

Tried a couple of our church ponds early this morning. Nothing going on at the  pond I get bigger fish in, so I tried another pond and got 3 dinks on the Magnum speed worm. I enjoyed the suspense right before the hook set, then a slight letdown when I realized it was a dink…

Went home and cast a little before breakfast, and got a nicer one on the super fluke…

@riverratryan, do you or anyone else know why your bass's tail is so red? When you boat a musky, their tail and all their fins are red and I always thought it was due to stress.

From fanning a bed.

Musky is from stress.

Took me a while today, but managed a couple on a finesse jerkbait. Soon... Soon...

Also - threw a t-rig 5" senko and was letting it soak while I tied something else on. Went to start working it back, felt the mush, and thought "Hmm..." 

 

This little beast sucked my bullet weight in and was not keen to give it back.

so it’s been unseasonably warm up here in mid-michigan.  a lot of years we would still be ice fishing.  i’ve been walleye fishing the saginaw river for the last month from my boat.  How we fish for walleyes in the saginaw river is by using a 1/4-1/2 oz walleye jig either tipped with a live minnow ( always emerald shiners)or split tail like a fin-s or other brands. this is a vertical presentation where we keep the jig 6-8 inches off the bottom and than basically jig up and than let the jig slam off the river bottom.  there were 100’s of boats on the river today walleye fishing. 

 

 

 I should have brought some smithwicks.  

 

I did catch 2 walleye but, the talk of the river was all of the small mouth.  Apparently the smallies were hungry.  there were a couple 4-5 pounders caught.  just sucks that where all the small mouth were caught that section of the river will shut down due due to the walleye spawn at 12:00 am march 15th.  it will not open again untill the last saturday in april.

Keeping the "a bass every month" going at least one more and the last challenging month for awhile.  These 2 clones were pushed up in 5-6' of a windblown shore, but the bites were few and far between.

Short but sweet trip yesterday where all fish were caught on a swim jig with a chunk on the back of wood.  Found some pretty big concentrations of fish staging and going back tomorrow for a longer trip and hoping the warm weather has them eating up shallow!

Stopped at the local pond after church for a few minutes. First cast with a 1/4oz white beetle spin. Didn't even get a bite after that.

Wellllll.....I went back out today.  Being my 37th birthday and all I really wanted to catch a special fish.  Also my wife made me enter the 'Big Bass Bash' which is a local annual tournament for our 3 major lakes where the 12 anglers who submit and certify at marina scales the biggest bass on any of the three lakes for each of the 12 months of the year get to compete the following spring for a cash prize.

 

Today, I got to submit one.

Currently in the lead for March for the tri city piedmont NC big bass bash and may compete next spring!

 

At around 2:30 pm I found a culvert where fresh water was dumping into the lake near some lilly pads.  They weren't in the pads today so I decided to fish some wood on the adjacent channel swing banks thinking they'd be excellent staging areas (and seeing some big herons sneaking around figured plenty of bait).

 

Well she smoked my @Siebert Outdoors 3/4 oz blue bug brush jig with a rage craw on the back on the fall next to a long lay down towards the end where it ended.

 

Meagan netted her and I kept her alive boatside all the way back to the marina for the submission and I revived and released her personally.  She swam away with vigor.  Bass are tough fish.

 

What a birthday.  One I'll never ever forget!

(And yes I got the whole thing on camera!)

Dang pat you are always on the bigs !!! I have those same oars and oar locks………. Hard to spot lock them 😂 

 

I went fishing a while in my boat today, white bass completely evaded me which is somewhat rare but I got a crappie and a nice SM and a couple tiny LM

Somebody had to do it! 😂. I’ll keep after the 3-4 lbers while he’s after 8-11 lbers……. You can only catch what is in the water I guess

@TnRiver46 Sometimes I can't even do that 😂😂😂

 

The amount some of you guys catch astounds me and leads me to think I have so much to learn!!!  I mean for crying out loud. A bassmaster elite series champion learned everything he knew from Alex this past winter and won on Toledo Bend.

 

All I did was start a thread about Bama Strolling which led to a measly fourth place finish for Tyler Williams this week.🥲
