First time using big worm

Recommended Posts

Went out for a couple hours before work throwing a 12 in Junebug Mag Ol Monster and caught this nice one. Went 7 1/2 pounds 22 inches. Now this worm is all I want to throw lol.

They catch big fish, and I'm constantly amazed by some of the small fish who aren't scared to eat worms as long as they are!

I have never seen bass in a body of water with that high of a gradient before!

That's a tank! Congrats! Big worms this time of year are a great tool, as you've found.

Sweet catch. Great color in those photos. Save those photos to your computer or put them in a folder on BassResource & then post them and you will be right side up.

Awesome! Once you get a bite on a 10" or longer worm you kind of forget they make smaller ones.

This one took it and swam off with it while it was sitting still, hadnt even moved it yet.

Awesome catch! How deep was water ? Temp?

Thanks! She was up in 3 feet of water right next to a deep drop off though. Not sure of the temp, pretty warm though.
