Today Was A Good Day

Recommended Posts

Had an awesome day today. Caught my PB :respect-059: , and the first top water frog fish of the year. Caught them at the same lake I've been catching consistently at the past few weeks. There was some sparse pads grown in so I decided to throw the frog, but only caught the one. My PB is whole other story. I was fishing a little Island on the lake which consists of a beaver abode a couple of rock formations and some brush. To get to it you have to cross a ghetto beaver bridge which consists of a several loosely laying together knarwed down scrawny trees, across a shallow 4ft wide "moat". Flipped my jig in some laydown timbers feel a bite set the hook and snag said timber. Had to free spool and walk back off the Island to the other bank so I could free the jig from the snag. I get unsnagged, and see this girl with a male about six feet in front of me. I let the jig fall from the snag and start fishing it with a hop hop pause, Then see the broad go to it and inhale it, not pick it up to move it, but inhale it. I couldn't believe she ate it because i thought I spooked her. She was about 4 feet in front of me in about a foot of water when she took it. To weigh her I had to go all the way back on that Island to get my scale cause I had left it there. I had a death grip on this fish lip as i was crossing that ghetto beaver bridge :pray: . This year has been the best prespawn and spawn fishing for me so far. Last year this time I only caught a Rock Bass by accident, and a 7 inch LMB...

Caught her on a Siebert 1/4oz B2B Arky with a Havoc 3" Pit Boss trailer in Watermelon Orange Fleck.

Now to shoot for 4lbs plus :eyebrows:

*UPDATE* It came to my attention that my digital scale literacy is lacking. So the weight of my PB is actually 3.19lbs so almost 3 and a 1/4 Lbs

Congrats on the new PB but 3lbs 19ozs seems like a rather roundabout way of saying 4lbs 3ozs  :eyebrows:

I had a feeling it was either that or you accidentally hit a 9 instead of a 0 (10ozs instead of 19ozs). I just couldn't pass up the chance to give you a hard time :)

 

Congrats on the new PB, now go get a bigger one!
