PB! PB! PB! YEAAAA!!!

Recommended Posts

So i headed out today after school at about 3:00 and only had about a hour and 45 minutes to fish before work. I decided to hit an old farm pond that i've only fish once this year wuth no luck. But I know this pond holds some real pigs and this is the time to catch 'em.

I tie on a trusty white 1/8 oz stanley spinner bait and start flipping it back into freshy flooded bushes and parallel to the shore lines. I made a long parallel cast down a shore line with some chunk rock. My bait was only about 5 yard from the shore and I was burning it quick just under the surface. I just bounced it through a little fallen tree branch when the water erupted! The fight was on! She gave me two good head shakes and a cart wheel but it didnt matter because the spinner bait and trailer hook were both securly in the corner of her jaw!

When i got her to shore and grabbed hold of her massive head my knees were shaking and I just kept sayin " Oh my God, Oh my God, Oh my God..." I grabbed my scale as quick as I could. 8 pounds 1 1/4 oz! I've never even heard of a bass that big around here. I snapped a few quick pictures before giving her a big kiss and letting her go. She was deffinetly about to lay here eggs any day and her tail was all scraped up where you could tell she was fanning her bed.

I think the state records 11-3.  3 pounds off from the record, not too shabby in my book.  

Thanks for all the complements guys!
