THANK YOU!!! my first bass!

Recommended Posts

hey, here it is, finally got my first one!!!!! I want to thank you guys for the advice that led to this catch! I caught it on a zoom horny toad. I was shaking so bad i could hardly snap the photo!

Sadly, my phone ended up in the lake when i decided to unexpectedly fall in. so this fish basically cost me a 300$ cell phone lol

but the first wordsout of my mouth were, "I WANT MORE!!!!"

the other pics are of the lilly pads I fished, so ehres my dilema, when i cant rent the boats, i have to fish the tall pads that rise almost a foot out of the water, but i drug that toad over tphe low pads to get my fish, so how do I draw them outta the highpads, the zoom horny toad just isnt working there.....?

Congrats, I remember my first good bass. Thanks for reminding me. The only other thing, What is the glove for?

My cell phone has been in the lake twice. First time it took a few days of heating up with a hair dryer and it finally came back on. Second time it only took one day with the hair dryer and it works better now than it did before!!

Yea, the gloves? Great feeling though!! I caught my PB 4.5 lbs. and I felt like I got off of a roller coaster.

As for the phone, next time you get one wet, take the battery out, dry the phone with a clean cloth and (this sounds hoakey) put it in a zip-lock bag of rice.  It absorbs moisture and most of the time your phone will work.  This is not a fix for the moisture strip to cover your insurance etc, but you will have an opperating cell phone.

This I learned from Kim Kommando the computer gal on the radio (answering a question from a caller who had washed a phone in a pant pocket).

Good luck, and when I am on the water, I keep my phone in a zip-lok bag unless I am using it.

Congrats! Now you will be broke, too tired to work or go to school on Monday, and will have to acquire an entirely new room for all of the tackle you are about to buy...but atleast you will be tan ;)

Seriously though, congrats...Its a great sport.

nice fish, i've done the cellphone in the water thing too.

So my new phone from verizon is waterproof. That was one of my best decisions. I've gone swimming with that phone and no damage at all.

Good fish! Congratulations! Lose the gloves though, lol. For those high pads I am no expert but I would suggest flipping and pitching soft plastics  with a nice heavy bullet weight,{1/2 oz. or better.}
