My First Bass This Year

Recommended Posts

So I went to a friends pond, it's a pond in his appartment complex...most of the bass were already off the beds, in Jacksonville,FL.

Condition was rainy and chilly, anyways I got my first bass of the year of a jig and my first ever jig-bass...had on a female approx 5lbs she did manage to surface throwing my jig out of her mouth....poor hook set. I'm still lesrning how to set the hook when a female on a bed bites...I have always rememberd on bass shows or tournements when the pro watches the line and that was my mistake, I was waiting on a thump.

Send that warm weather my way! If our weather keeps up I should be able to land a bass in the boat by the end of March or no later than April 10th which is early for up here. Just need the ice to melt :pray:

I hear you. That is the hardest part for me when using a Jig. After the tick, I have to make a concerted effort to lower the rod tip to reel in any slack in the line, then give it the old heave-ho hook set. I used to lose fish once and a while because I was so excited I had one, I wouldn't reel in the slack before setting the hook. It still happens once and a while.
