Only takes one bite to be your first bass of 2023 - but I played it safe and got 2 😆 from the only pond that was about 85% ice free. Everything else I saw was still locked up.

Just went out for an hour or two as I wanted to start a new tradition in line with this thread.

 

Caught two and enjoyed the beautiful hot blue bird day.  

 

Happy New Year fellow Bass heads, and to those who have to wait up north, the first fish will only be that much sweeter.

Unexpectedly got to fish today, rock pit was as crowded as it’s ever been (not with fishermen, just New Year’s Day I guess). Took me forever to get a spot
