New huge PB! Best way ever

Recommended Posts

So it had been super hot up north in NY weather has been stable so I figured I would get some fishing in. Got done visiting my brother in law who currently has cancer (is doing very well and most is gone) but he is the one who got me into fishing so he was pumped for me. I went out to this little 50 acre lake I always fish out of my canoe, it was around 8 at night so I was using my hollow body frog bc I want to get better at it. I started tossing it in the usual spots and I noticed out in the middle of the lake was a random grass patch and figured that would be a great ambush point so bass should be staged in there. FIrst cast I slowly walk it and BOOM! The biggest bass I ever seen comes out of the water like a shark and dives back in, I set the hook and install adrenaline started rushing. I do my best to turn it’s head but it dives down and surprisingly takes drag, it was at that moment i started shaking.  My drag was set to around 9-10 pounds where it barely slipped if I tried to pull some out so I knew it was huge! I finally get it turned but I feel dead weight.. scared as I see this giant clump of weeds but as soon as it was boat side I could see her massive head sticking out. Without worrying where the frog was I stuck my hand right in her mouth and grabbed hold.. pulled out this giant 7 pound bass and just stopped breathing for about 30 seconds just staring in shock. Hurry and grsbbed my measuring tape.  Was 22.5 inches long and 16.5 inches around. Was hoping to hit 8 pounder but for a norther strain ill take a 7 pounder any day ! Thanks @WRB for the advice on Fred’s magic stick! Would have never hauled that out with another Rod

Sorry to hear about your BIL but I'm glad he is doing better. I'll send out a prayer for his continued recovery. That frog fish is massive. Congrats on the new PB.

I was stunned, after I got it in my canoe I just thought I was dreaming and after I released it I literally just sat in my canoe for like 5 minutes just staring at the water haha. And thank you @Gundog for having a prayer for my brother in law , means a lot. And thank you everyone else for the comments! Hope everyone gets a PB this year.

Congrats man! 

I know that feeling well! My previous PB came on that same color frog, and was stuck all the way in the back of the roof of its mouth just like that!
