Twins!

Recommended Posts

I went fishing a couple days ago and had a decent day. Nothing huge but it was still fun. I showed up at the lake at around 10 and fished untill about 1:30 I got bit and landed one about 6lbs within the first ten minutes. I didnt weight it and I didnt take pictures becuase there were a bunch of other fisherman around and I didnt want them to see that the bass were right under their noses biting. I let it go quickly. I then coverd a lot of water without another bite. I was just about ready to go home when I got my second bite. This time when I swung and stuck this fish I noticed it wasnt alone. there was another one that came in with it trying to steal my swimbait out of the other fishes mouth. I quickly put the first fish one a stringer and casted out. I didnt get the twin on the very next cast but it was probably 3 casts later. Both fish hit hard and it was fun. Becuase I saw that they were only 5-7lbs I let them jump and I fought them but only a little bit. I didnt want to push my luck too much. There was a guy and his wife a few feet away fishing that couldnt believe I caught fish on that huge lure(ha ha my baby bass is only about 4 1/2 in) He started taking pictures so I asked him if he would use my camera and take a few for me since I was fishing alone. I asked him what he thought they weighed and he said "I have no idea, I have never seen bass that big..... maybe 10lbs" I luaghed and said I thought they were both around 6. I weighed them with my salter and they were 6 even and 6.1. I felt prety cool calling their weights that good! lol.

I was using a light swimbait rod with a low pro Okuma VS bait caster and I think 20lb test. bait of choice was my baby bass slow rolled.

Both fish spent about 5 minutes total on the stringer and then they were released good and strong.

Great fish Matt. Funny you almost caught them both on the same cast. My brother caught a couple small bass at the same time on a big Rapala once.

Those are spectacular bass to me.  3 pounds probably being the largest one I've ever caught, I'd be dumbstruck to catch one that size, let alone 3 in the same day.

Thanks guys, LBH 3 6's in one day is good day for me this late in the year. It all depends on the what when and where. If all I could muster was 3 6's while I was sight fishing I would consider it a poor day almost a failer. If I caught them while worm fishing it would be a GREAT day. Now summertime swimbaiting I think its a alright day. It comes down to expectations. I was hoping for a 10 but I didnt realy expect to get one so 3 good bites is a fun day. I probably wont do too much more LMB fishing for a while. Now its time to catch salty fish!!
