Good day at Varner with a new bass fishermen

Recommended Posts

For those of you that shop at Natures Tackle Box in Hiram GA you have probably seen or met Cole who is Christie and David's son. For those of you have never been there or live nowhere near GA Christie and David are the owners and real nice people. I know there are a few of you on this site that have been there and know or have met Cole and his parents.  Well today I took Cole out fishing at Varner. He said early in the morning that he had been fishing plenty but to his knowledge had never caught a largemouth. Well I wanted to make sure he got started catching bass right so after some pointers and getting used to the equipment he put a small bass in the boat. A little while later he caught his second bass which weighed around six pounds. Not bad for his second bass.  Well, to make a long story short he got a pretty good lesson in how to catch big bass in the spring as he caught his first largemouth. At the end of the day we had a best five fish caught that would weigh between 28-30 pounds. We caught fish on trickworms, swimbaits, and by sightfishing both fish on beds and big crusing bass. He also got to see me break a reel completely off a rod as a big bass hit a Mattlures Floating Hard Bluegill swimbait and still almost catch the fish with just the reel and line in my hand. ;D Had we caught that bass we would have been well over thirty pounds for five fish.

This is my third day in a row fishing at Varner where the best five was over 25lbs and we haven't even caught a real big one yet. Just lots of four to seven pound fish. We did see two or three today that were huge but couldn't catch them. The photo is Cole and two of our bass today. He is a good size young man so it's hard to judge the size from the photo but those are six and seven pounds. We had two more just a little smaller than these two and one in the four to five pound range. Now the bad thing is that on his first sucessful day of bass fishing we had some big fish come in the boat and we lost some big ones also. It's going to be hard to top a day like that later.

Randall, I'm starting to think that when the eggs hatch at Varner the fry already weigh 3 lbs. ;)  Three days in a row over 25 lbs is slaying 'em.
