WOW!! A beautiful fish!

Recommended Posts

Ok everyone, very happy to show the following pics  :D  .  I didn't catch the fish, my buddy James did.  I had the photos on my camera so I'm posting them for him....Needless to say, this is by far his PB and the biggest bass I've seen come from this farm pond.... Couple stats....During the day the temperature was around 100 degrees with very high humidity.  The pond water was pretty warm and clear, with TONS of weeds/grass floating in patches and all over the bank.  

This momma hit a small yellow grub worm about 15 feet off the shore right where the drop off is....Weight is unknown, but by feel and size I am almost certain it was at least 9-10 pounds....maybe more!!!  I'm the guy in the camo shorts handing him his first big a$$ catch!!! Enjoy!   8-)

At this point the drag was really going and we knew this was going to be epic!!  You can see the smile building on his face

After a nice fight she got right up to the shore and just laid on her side exhausted, I jumped into the thorn bushes and quickly grabbed her before she could make one last attempt to spit the hook and get away.  Here James daughter snaps a photo right after I pulled her from the water to hand her over so he could really look at his catch.

You can slightly see the 1 inch grub worm on the right side of her mouth still.  The adrenaline has really kicked in here!!  ;D

Just awesome!!!  This is why we sit outside in 100 degree heat with bugs and thorn bushes, for moments like this!!!

Nice gloves..I mean fish........congrats.

lol I know right....I don't know why, but I'm really allergic to the slime on the fish.  My hands turn red and I get a lot of bumps and hives and they can itch up to a day or two!  It sucks wearing them, but I do what I gotta do.  Anyone else have the same issue?

Awesome. Your pics and story took me there. The feeling of being with somebody when there moment arrives is awesome. I got to experience a young man catch his first lunker on a ledge just a couple days ago. It overwhelmed him and it is a story I won't forget.

Anyway, GREAT JOB and NICE POST! I LOVE IT!

Chris
