    Default My luck is still rolling:)

    well a week or two ago i caught what was then, by far my best bass ever on a flyrod. but today i caught my best bass by far with any type of equipment! even though this was at a farm pond...this fish took out the majority of my flyline and at one point wrapped itself up in a tree top! let me tell you that seeing this gal explode into the air was an awesome sight. i used my TFO Hawgleg and my Allen Alpha II reel spooled with S.A. bass taper line. the fly used was a white and chartuese weighted clouser. Blessed day indeed!!!!

    btw- the fish weighed 7.5#

    Very nice bass indeed, are you having it mounted?

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Very nice fish. Shame you won't be able to catch it when it is 8lbs.

    Great fish - had to be a blast to catch!

    But, those are the bass you want to release - big fish make big fish babies.

    thanks guys and yes i usually release most fish, unless im gonna eat them. the pond owner asked me to remove several big bass. he wants his crappie to thrive....so i gladly brought it home, measured, weighed, and fillet it up for dinner i'll be having a replica made now.

    That is a very nice bass!
    Since the owner wanted it removed you did the right thing.
    I used to fish a private pond where the owner had a strict C&R policy. He tried to kill off vegetation one summer and killed every big fish in the pond.
    I wouldn't have kept any bass, but it sure was depressing to see those 8-10 lb catfish wasted.

    i caught it on the north end, which is the deeper part( around 12-14ft.) but its also full of sunken cedar trees. after getting hung up several times using a craw pattern. i switched to the clouser and did a 10 count down and started short stripping it in. after the 3-4 strip the bass hit it HARD! then the surface of the water looked like a toilet bowl flushing this big fish came flying out of the water and then it took ALOT of line, before i finally landed it.
