I finally did it!

Recommended Posts

I caught my first largemouth bass around 12:32pm today.  The weather was 54 degrees outside and I thought it was just gonna be another day of disappointment.

I was trying to master how to use the crankbait seeing how it swam and everything.  I was able to cast farther and farther, hitting my intended spot.  I saw 3 giant splashes on the other side of the lake but I decided to stay where I was and see if that would work out.  I was reeling in the bandit tigerstrip crankbait slowly and all of a sudden a largemouth swallows it and I finally got the chance to set the hook.  

I pulled it onto shore and asked a nearby person to come take a picture but I was not prepared to know how to hold it up so I just told the person to just forget about it since I did not want the fish to suffer.  I will learn how to hold them the next time I land one.  It looked about 18 inches and had a really fat stomach.  I really wish I could have taken the picture.  That was a pretty big guy.
