Left the boat home today and fished on shore.  Did not expect much,  kinda like the two little ones posted below.  When I am gonna leave momma hit.  What a fight!!!  No scale, Im guessing 5-6 lbs.  from shore.

Awesome that you bring up frogs...  I borrowed one this week and bought one at Bass Pro Shops to use because a user on this forum submitted a report along with a Youtube video showing he was catching fish with them.  I did not even get the chance to use a frog bait...  :lol:  The fish around myself were jumping although just a few of them.  Feeding for winter?  I tried worming and top water buzz bait with no hits.  Only on a crank did I get a bite.  I plan on taking the boat this weekend  and maybe Ill try flipping and frogging and post up.   As I was fishing on shore I did not expect much,  the decent fish was unexpected.  :huh:

 

Ha! my grammar, ......where's my coffee......

Ill be out there in the spring some time throwing the spros around and flipping. Arizona surprinsgly has some of the best frogging ives seen all over the US. I get home around january. 8 months of no fishing is killing me!

Great fish! Depending on the thickness of that bass, it could be 7 pounds. That is a beautiful fish. All the reason to ALWAYS have a scale. I am terrified of this happening to me! No matter if i am fishing for 5 minutes from shore or at a spot that is not supposed to have a big fish, that scale is with me. However, i am sure that if i forgot it, i would start catching more giant bass. That always seems to happen when a scale is left at home. Great fish.

Thanks everyone. :)  I went out today and purchased a digital scale.  I purchased the scale not only for the fish but so I can also set drag on my reel more consistently.  I ended up  with a Berkley digital even though I wanted a Rapala, but they did not have one and the Berkely had a fish on it so I think its ok....  :unsure:   Now I would like to get some kind of bag because I really do not want to put unnecessary holes in a fish's lips, but that is for another thread.  Thanks again.  :)  

I am headed out Sat. on the boat,  will post report unless there is not one to post.  :P
