Two For Two Tuesdays!

Recommended Posts

Well I'm running back and forth a lot lately, helping family out with some work on some property, and I've been trying to hit up spots on the way there and back. Today I hit a spot on the way where I've had some luck and on my 5th cast I pulled in this little decent largemouth. T-rigged small green and white senko, 4" maybe?

Didn't measure or weigh the fish but it was around the same size as one I caught yesterday that went 14".

Then on the way home I tried a different spot, where I haven't had a lot of luck from shore. I went up on a boulder and tried to throw my new swimbait setup just to see how it all worked.

I only threw it a few times because it wasn't really the right situation; shallow water with lots of stickups and a sinking $14.00 swimbait that isn't weedless. Got hung up once and thought I was gonna have to go swimming to get the bait back. :unsure: Pulled it free and put the swimbait rod down, reached for my regular baitcasting rod and tied on a jig.

I don't have a lot of confidence with jigs because I had never caught a fish on one, but I saw a submerged rock that looked like it might be holding a fish, so I threw the jig a little past it and hopped it up over the rock and let it drop down over it. Gave it a few small hops and then on the fall I felt a "Tap Tap" and swung on it, setting my first jig fish! I was afraid I would lose it hauling it up on to the boulder, but I got it up pretty easily, ran to the truck to snap a shot, and let her go smoothly.

Pretty much the same size as the first, maybe a little bigger and it felt quite a bit stronger. Felt really good and I feel like the bass gods are finally smiling on me again :)

Once you get your boat rigged you need to get out on that lake, it is a good place to fish for big bass both largies and smallies!

I hope you went out and bought yourself a good scale, I don't want to see any post of "how big do you think this fish is?" :P You will get your new PB if you fish those lakes enough. B) If they were not so far away I would have probably topped my PB by now. The gas prices have forced me to fish my local lakes, (eight of them within and hour).

lol it's funny you say that about the scale - I just picked up a rapala digital scale today so now I have to be honest about my weights lol

skunked today btw :( - so, so sad. Worked up and down the bank for almost an hour but couldnt even get a nibble. The water was much clearer and I saw a few bass - they just didn't want my offerings. They seemed more active/aggressive and I think they wanted something shiny - but I had no spinnerbaits or anything shiny in my bag :huh:

I didn't come prepared. Or maybe they new I had a scale on me and they were touchy about their weight B)
