Free gear from Roadtrip= 09 PB for my DAD!

Recommended Posts

Well I was out again yesterday on a VERY VERY WINDY day and the bite was pretty slow. We fished until our battery finally ran out of juice but we were smiling ear to ear! The reason was because the one fish we did catch was a good one. We were on a small windy point near some deeper watter. I had one of the free Rattle Head Spinner baits tied on one of my rods. I let my dad use it while I checked to see if a jerkbait bite, might be on. When we got to that point I hear my Dad yell " THERE SHE IS!"! I see the medium action rod bending over like like a green twig would. I quickly asked my dad "You want me to get the net?". This was a question and not a statement because he's not that much of a fan of nets. On the last trip he actually took it out of the boat before we left LOL. His answer this time though was a resounding "YES!". The big girl took off for the right side of the boat only to dive under it to head for the other side. I swear the rod was almost bent tip to handle at one point. He was able to run back up the boat and around the trolling motor. Only then to see the big girl diving towards a giant tree under the water. By this time the wind had already swept us against the bank. Thank the lord it was a grassy one and not a rocky one! Soon he was able to wrestle her back to the boat and I was able to get a net on her.

So here is my pops first 6 pounder (I swear my scale must be weighing light) in some years. Caught on a RattleHead Spinerbait I received at our roadtrip! Not to mention the free hat he also has on in the pick. :D

Obviously this is dad.  Welcome to BR, I see you've been lurking for a while. ;)  Did Simp flourish you with gifts, or did he make you beg? ;D

Beautiful fish! Congrats to your dad on his new PB! So, is he a fan of the net now?

I'm trying but he can be stuburn. I set up Opera to open up one of it's tabs to this site . I try to relay all the info I learn on here and practice with when I go out with him on the lake. The problem is he doesn't hear all that well!!! ;D ;D

So I'm trying to get him to join the BR discussion more. Heck I already duped him into joining the local Bass Club. The problem is it's tough to get a guy to break out of three of the best baits ever. Those being a Buzz bait, Spinner Bait, and TX rigged Worm. So it's a resolution this year that I'm trying to get him and myself to fish in new ways. We have virtually no experience fishing a drop shot or a Carolina rig for example. This site can't be beat to learn a new style of fishing and how to do it effectively.
