Finally a good swim bait fish!!!!!

Recommended Posts

So after all the swim bait monsters i've been seeing on here i've been throwing them alot without any luck. I went out to one of my favorite ponds the other day and caught about 5 decent bass on senko's off beds when I spot a big boy about 7 yards out. I tossed my senko on him and he didn't even look. So then I decided to toss a Storm Wildeye blue gill at him. He was sitting in a small hole in some submeged vegitation. I cranked it to the hole and stopped it, letting it sink down to his bed. Next thing I know the weeds explode and my drag starts running. Fish on! I fought him in and and snapped a few pics before letting him go. First good swim bait fish and a pb for the year! He had a huge head but was skinny. If his body was proportional to his head i bet he would have gone at least 6 pounds.

nice fish! but if it was on a bed, it is almost certainly a female.

Not necessarily.  Actually the male spends more time at the bed than the female.  She lays and leaves the male to guard the bed and the male even stays with the fry for a short time guarding them.  However, the one in this picture looks like a spawned-out female.  Nice job with the swimbait.
