It really is hard to stay locked in after you've caught one of those fish where you have to sit down for 5-10 minutes to collect yourself and stop shaking.   


I’ve had several of those moments of having to collect myself before I get back to fishing. Usually happens with a PB.  Makes me think of the TacticalBassin video where Matt tells the story of when he caught a 13 pounder. He got to the lake, fished for a few minutes until he caught the 13lber, and was so excited he immediately packed up and went home ? I could so see myself doing that, only to go right back a little while later.

We'll just call it Mendechuck west then.

Hmm...... Named the first one after A-Jay's dog in appreciation for A-Jay telling him the location of Menderchuck West? Inquiring minds want to know......

Was it in fact BC? You said Washington or BC in your post.

British Columbia Canada just above Washington state.

Not a lot of reservoirs in BC

 

It only takes one. I met Shane down at Lake Baccarac & talked with him extensively about fishing for smallies in Washington state & BC.

Unreal. He was a lot calmer than I would have been. I  would probably struggle to focus on fishing after that first 8lber.

No Kidding! I want to see Alex catch a fish like that with the volume turned up! Although I'm not at all sure I could stand it! Don't want my boss to catch me rolling on the floor laughing!

You could easily put 30lbs together in the right place on Erie or St Lawrence but 40 is out of this world

Of course, You Could.

 But the rest of us mortals,

might have to work for 30 lbs,

at least a little.

:smiley:

I also think I've got the lake figured out. Saw it in a video last year...the guy I saw in the video just caught a 9.1lb smallie out of it a month ago.

 Easily? I don't think so. Maybe once or twice in a lifetime. I had "my day" in February, 2005.

May never have another.

This video is getting more views than anything on the "hub" right now.

 

As well it should. Phenomenal single day catch.

Well, if A-Jay is going to upgrade his electronics, I'm going to upgrade my paddle and buy a longer one for that's the way I check depth. FYI, if my paddle can't touch bottom, I know it's deep.

Either way, the writing's on the wall.

It's getting harder and harder to ignore it.

This might be the one that pushes me over the edge

in the form of an updated electronics package.

My fear is that by the time I 'figure it out',

I'll be too old to use it.

Life is short.

   In my humble opinion, any one with the money, (which isn't that much compared to the cost of a bass boat or AJ's jerkbait collection) and the time to learn how to use it should buy the latest forward scanning sonar.  If you catch so many big fish, that you feel it isn't sporting, or ruining yours, or some one else fishing experience in any way, then you can simply turn off the unit, or give it to me.

      I know of three lakes in Mexico, where someone with the skills to use the new technology might make O.H. Ivie, look like a dink fest.  Unfortunately I don't have the finances or the time to take advantage of the opportunity to be first on the scene.

      AJ you have the skills, and knowledge of Lake Menderchuck, you might as well take it to the next level.  You will not get another chance to be the pioneer on your water.  Some one else will be the one to discover the true potential of Lake Menderchuck, and in my opinion that would be a travesty.
