Aaaargh ???

I lost two bass today. One pulled hard.

 

We've not been fishing a lot the past couple years. There's just a lot of other interests we have, and the kids are getting older and are busier with school.

 

My 9-year-old daughter and I finally got the chance to go bank fishing this evening at a place where a creek flows into the reservoir. I chose a chartreuse willow leaf spinner to start.

 

A few casts in and boom, this little bass, 9" or so, hits the spinnerbait. I almost yanked it to shore on the hook set.

 

It came out of the water and flopped off. Dammit.

 

Oh well.

 

So I cast up the creek, and on about the fifth cast up that way, what felt like a huge bass inhaled the bait. I set the hook hard.

 

After fighting for several seconds, this one jumped and spat the bait.

 

I reeled the lure the rest of the way in to sharpen it, and discovered the hook had no barb. Apparently it was one of the spinners I modified for use by my then-young little girl several years ago.

 

Dammit.

 

We had to pack up and leave shortly after. ?

You went fishing with your daughter and got some exciting bites.  The first half alone makes it a great evening. ?
