4 bigguns make up 32.3lb sack

Recommended Posts

Got a chance at a little "fishing therapy" this afternoon.  That is what I call it when I am by myself.  Never expect to have a day like this when alone, but man are they always welcome! Need to invest in a selfie stick, cause with short arms it is hard to get the big fish in the pics!  Ha, isn't that nice to complain about!!!!  Anyways, caught 7 today with the top 5 going 32.3lb (9.10, 8.77, 6.83, 6.10, 1.5ish)  Wish I could have culled the dink, but not complaining!  All fish were caught on a @Siebert Outdoors brush head jig(couple different colors).

In order of catch:

6.83

That's a solid limit right there! That 9'er will be double digits in a month.

Wow Jeff...that is just wow! Great fish. Seems like your spot keeps teasing you. It is trying to lead you to believe you will stick your 10 there, but just won't let you have it. At this point, have you recaught some of the same giants? Great job. Come this fall, I think you will hook the ten.

Not sure if some are the same or not honestly. It's a crazy spot. You will literally get skunked with big fish for several trips. And then BAM. They are feeding like crazy!  I haven't caught a bass over 5lbs in over 2 months..........

When this 9 jumped 3 times I though for sure she was a DD. I was shaking like a leaf. I won't stop anytime soon, so I just know my US DD is coming. Wouldn't it be crazy if my first US DD broke my PB!!!!!

That's awesome. I had a day of pound and a halfers and was happy.  Don't think I would go home if I had a day like yours.

LOL ~   I'd be staying late, that's for sure.

There'd be At Least 50 . .  "Last Casts".

Great bag!!

Interesting contrast between the 9.10 and the 8.77.  The latter is nearly an inch longer, but over a 1/4 lb lighter.  You can see the girth differences on the ruler, the 9.10 takes up nearly the entire width of the ruler while there is substantial space on the 8.77.  Neither fish looks fat nor skinny, the 9.10 is just thicker for a longer amount of length.

The two 8 lb fish I caught this July were both over 24" (61 centimeters), so it seems like the 8.77 is normal for her length while the 9.10 is the unique one.  Hope she has a good spawn next spring.

Funny you should say that, when I put the 8.77 on the IGFA board, I said out-loud to myself, if that 9.10 had her length she would have been a DD!

Congratulations!Catching big totals like that is one of my favorite aspects of bass fishing.

That's incredible, heck what I'd give to just catch one of those! Unfortunately our bass up here don't get anywhere near that size.

A quick tip for the pics though, look into the self timer mode on your camera app. You can lean it against something and push the button to take the picture, and I think with I phone your options are 3 second delay and 10 second delay. That should give you enough time to get everything in the shot. On my boat I've got the older style tempress seat in the back, and if I fold it down and raise my pedistal, I can lean my phone against the folded back and it takes a decent picture. It's a lot cheaper than a selfie stick haha.

Thanks @WIGuide.  I thought about something like that but didn't want to take the time with the fish out of the water.  These fish were literally out of the water maybe 30 secs. That is why the pics aren't that great and I forgot to get pics on the scale!  HAHA  Oh well.

I hear ya, and It's appreciated that you take care of those fish.  I usually drop mine in the livewell after I unhook it to let it recoup while I get everything set up. That way I can pull it out of the livewell, bump the button to take a few quick pictures and then back into the water they go. And hey you'll just have to get pics of them on the scale next time when they've put on a little more weight!
