Default First largemouth

My daughter and boy friend are visiting and winds have been horrendous for the past 4 or 5 days. So I took them out to a spot in the glades in a little aluminum boat to go for some bass.

She lost one very large bass after several jumps but caught another of a good size on the huge popper several casts later. She'd never caught a largemouth before, though she had caught a number of smallmouths up north. She was throwing the 8 wt remarkably well especially considering the high winds and the fact that she only uses a rod for a couple days a year at best. I'm hoping the winds die eough tonight to get her onto a tarpon tomorrow.

She wouldn't touch the bass though, hence my mug in the shot below.

Cheers,
Jim
