Default Re: Went Fishing for Trout...Caught Trophy Bass!

Hi Guys,
Yesterday was windy and cold, so I was stripping the bugger short and slow.
I never really use a fast retrieve, however, but I did give it more time to settle further down yesterday.

That lake holds quite a few very large bass, and they can be see rocketing
out of the water during the summer months. When I fish for bass, they are
usually on the smaller side. This was something similar to my early Spring
bluegill excursion with an 8'6" 4wt a few weeks ago, during which I caught
a 24" channel cat . No bluegill BTW

The Hat: I can't stand the way I look in hats, but since my hands were full
of bass, I didn't have a chance to take it off .

Excellent fish! It is excitement and nervousness all rolled into one when you hook one of those big guys on light tackle. I hooked into a nice one myself a couple of days ago on my 4wt, but broke him off trying to horse him too much. Great job!

Nice fish indeed. Lots of fun to land them on light tackle.

Wow,

I've never caught a bass that big on a fly rod. As a matter of fact I'm not sure I ever caught one like that! You should hunt up the 'Your biggest fish on a fly' thread and post it there so it is with the other monsters.

Just sent you a PM, check it out

Guess 550 wasn't enough but you gotta draw a line somewhere. Was that you at 587?
