New PB (and rattlesnake)

Recommended Posts

Went out for about 1 - 1.5 hours today and stepped about a foot away from a (very cleverly hiding) rattlesnake as soon as I got there... Ten minutes later I caught my new PB though. :D I thought I'd foul hooked a grass carp it fought so hard... Also caught one smaller one a few minutes after that. Both were caught on a T-rig zoom lizard.

 

Edit: I noticed that it's tail fin looked pretty beat up. Could it have been on a bed? I caught it about 4 feet off the shore.

Thanks. :)  I didn't have my phone with me, but I would estimate about 6 pounds. About the size of my old PB, but much fatter.

Congrats on the PB! Next time bring your phone. Never mind the pictures - you may need it if that rattlesnake decides to bite.

Nice on the PB and rattle snake avoidance! :) 

 

I'd also recommend a lizard, but try it wacky rigged

over the bed. Yep. Wacky rigged.

At least the rattle snake tells you it's there! We deal with copperheads around here and they don't give any warning, they just reach out and smack you... with their teeth!

Wacky rigged lizard sounds like something I'll have to try!
