Everyone's PB

Recommended Posts

The capper of a  5 day trip south of the border in 2013 came on the third day late in the afternoon.  While fishing a ¾ ounce SK Redeye Shad (Sexy Shad) in front of some bushes on a “nothing” bank, I hooked what eventually turned out to be a new PB.  The fish hit like a freight train and immediately ran for the bushes, I managed to turn her.  Next she went way under the boat attempting to get free, I managed to foil that one. Then in a last ditch effort she went straight for the trolling motor.   I thumbed the spool & she didn't make it, leaving this now less inspired Trophy bass nowhere to go but in the net.  Once our guide Manual placed the net bag onto the deck, with my heart just about pounding right out of my chest, the bait fell from the fish’s mouth.   Seriously lucky for sure and quite a rush.

This fish weighed 11lbs 11 ounces was caught on Nov 11th (11-11) ~  that's going to be a hard one to forget.

   After getting a weight, photos and successful release, I had to take several minutes to collect myself – I had a bit of the shaky hands thing going on.   It was cool.    By now the sun had just about set and once I could no longer feel my pulse in my face, I went back to fishing.  The magic continued on my very next cast.  As an 8 -14 bass sucked down that redeye shad and again, the fight was on.  To tell you the truth, I don’t really even remember that fight very well, sort of a blur.  I was still pretty numb from the previous events.  Somehow the fish ended up in the net, there was a weight and some pictures taken in the dark and then she was released.  That’s 20.5 lbs of Mexican Bass in two casts.

 It was like dream – the good kind.
