Nice beast, and yeah, I'd probably go in after what

Ive done it for any fish. Rather get wet than let it die and adds adventure to the day :)

Long as the water ain't to cold I'm in for any bass no matter what size it would be.

Never swam for a fish. I did have to swim for my boat once; and that's all I have to say about that...

Welcome aboard, and congratulations on retrieving that lunker!

 

Yeah, I've been known to enter the drink to grapple with a hog,

but I usually come back empty  :(

I was a member here for like 3 years I just haven't been on in a year and it deleted my posts but saved my account and password weird...haha I swam in for one before and it got off by the time I got there. Glad I landed this one, it's so devastating losing a good bass.

Did that last Tuesday, in 52 degree water.  It floated away in the 10-15 mile an hour wind while I was unsnagging on a boat lift, so I had to swim for it with a net in one hand.  Not fun.

To the op, I have also had to swim for fish that get me tangled up.  One was just over four pounds and got me tangled around the central dock post underneath a dock, so I jumped in after it and managed to grab the fish.

I swam for a fish once when I was 15. Was bream/ catfishing  with a dough ball on the bottom when I saw the line moving out. Started pulling it in I saw it was a nice bass .It got hung up in a dead tree by the bank and without hesitation I took the plunge.It wasnt a big deal since I wade fished as much as I bank fished back then !My pb at the time! 4 pounds. Dont think Ive ever swum for one since !

Yeah.One of 3 in my life .

The wierdest thing is that my oldest son caught his first bass on a bread ball.

Ive actually caught bass on cut dead shiners while catfishing.
