Lots of firsts today

Recommended Posts

Went fishing with my buddy on my old but new boat to me today, started at 6am finished at noon..

I've been DYING to catch a fish with a frog, or with a topwater for that matter, never have.. and also catch a good bass with a jig !! never have.. and catch a bass with a baitcaster, never have.. let alone my 2 new ones I just got !! 

 

WELL TODAY SIR's.. 8 Complete blowups, monster fish, amazing.. so sad they all missed !!! hookup ratio is straight crap.. but .. I stayed w/ it and low and behold, big splash, big set hook, 40lb braided, Lews Tourney MG, and a little kid spirit set the hook right in its upper lip yo !! fought hard and reeled him in.

 

then.. shortly after I moved down a bit, saw I went over a little ridge exiting a small cove back into the main channel and thought, "hmm that looks like a small school on a ledge, let me turn around and jig it".. 10 casts, lift and drop technique... BAAAAAAAAAAM!!!! DESTROYED it on the fall, I never had it happen so flawlessly, I used to doubt the lift and drop technique but wow.. reeled him in, great fight, both were 3lber's !!!! that was on my Powell Diesel rod, and my abu garcia sx reel, 10lb mono.

 

what a ***** day man, I am thrilled, brought my spirit back after getting skunked at the resevoir 4x in a row. 

 

absolutely... UGH----FREAKING-----MAZING. Had to share my day haha with people that understand the feeling !!!  Who ever is down to fish and can make it to the resevoir hmu !! let's run that bish !!!

AWESOME! I feel like this all the time everytime I hook up out there on the water. It's all SO GOOD! When they bite a topwater, that's just STELLAR stuff!

 

Thanks for sharing your excitement. I'm here at my desk eating lunch and fishing vicariously through these stories and daydreaming of being back on the water. :)

Nothing like that feeling when you catch a fish on a new technique and that lightbulb goes off in your head.
