I caught a big one

Recommended Posts

I got this one a little while ago. I actualy saw her follow in my swimbait earlier in the day so I knew where she was. I gave her a long rest and went back and deadsticked my floating gill.

It took a while but she couldnt take it any longer and them BOOM

I took her measurements which were 27 1/2  X 20 1/4  and I took a bunch of pics

I geussed her to be 15lbs. Earlier in the day I came up on one of my friends who had a good one and I went to get my scale and weigh it for him and realized I left it in my truck. I was too lazy to go get it. I hadnt stuck a big one in a while so I wasnt too worried about it  :-[  Anyways If my fish would have been a little bigger I would have went back for my scale but I knew she wasnt my PB so I was ok with just my measurements and pics. When I got home I checked the bass calculator and it said 15.013786764705882 Soo I call her 15.1

I gave her some oxygen and sent her on her way

Thanks fellas and ladies. I dont normaly trust the calculators but it was within 1 oz of my guess and I am ususly realy good about guessing my fishes weight so I am ok with it. I was on foot and a long way from my truck. It was just about time for me to leave to pick up my daught from daycare so I didnt have enough time to hike all the way back to my truck then back to the fish then back to my truck again. If it would have been my PB I would have called the wife to pick her up and I would have made the hike.

Dang dude ! That's a PIG right there ! Heck yea' that's a 15 if I ever saw one ! Been a while since I stuck one like that.

Is that your biggest so far this year ?

I'll be gunning for one like that, at least a few more times this year, but so far, that pond has not shown me #@$# :-(

Congrats,

Fish

FC that is my only DD this year. I am having a tough yeay. This fish was a huge relief. I kept wanting to go fish for other fish but I couldnt do it without atleast 1 good fish. Now I wont feel guilty about it
