It's a rare occasion that I put a trailer hook on a buzzbait, but I'm sure glad I did.

5 pounds 14 ounces.

They bite was HOT Thursday.

Wow - great catch. So I guess you'll be adding a trailer hook to your buzzbait a little more often?  It's tricky because they cure the short strike, yet hang up depending on where you are fishing.  Congrats.

I agree when your thumb looks like that it was a good day. 

Congrats on the nice catch. :thumbsup:

 BTW ~ I may have to frame & hang your shredded thumb picture in my tackle room.

Just so I can refer to it occasionally during the hard water season . . .

Nice fish! I will never throw a buzzbait without a trailer hook! Something tells me you might keep one on a little more often now too.

Great fish man! Buzzbait bass are so much fun. Overcast days like that are so hard not to only throw the jig

"Bass palm", as I call it, is always a good thing. I've also got a case of flathead knuckles after another accidental catch during our tournament last Tuesday night.

Nice fish!,   I hope she gave you a good fight.,.... And isnt it a shame your thumb and palm need more recouping, than you do yourself?  Got to love those days.

Congrats blue!

A-Jay, just keep some coarse grit sand paper handy during the winter and scuff up your own thumb when you need to experience "bass thumb."

Not a bad Idea.

But I'm a purest, and it's just not the same.

 That "Smell" would be absent - and that's at least half the fun.
