May the 4th be with you!!
Got to Beck late after again getting el zippo at another locale. I was hoping for something, anything to make me believe again
This spring (should we even call it that) has truly sucked. Most trips have ended the same, no fish.
I'd lost my last 'trap previously, casting it off somehow. It'd have to be plastics today. Wacky rigged a 5" baby bass senko which has seemed to be the most popular color at Beck. About five casts in my line actually moved! Out of sheer instinct I set the hook and reeled in a mediumish but extreeemly welcome bass. I was in such shock I took this terrible selfie. Note shocked look:
Several minutes later I hooked into a rocket bass... it was swimming so fast right to left I barely got a set in; it came unbuttoned unseen. Seemed to be a good one.
A guy came by and I told him it seemed the fish were finally moving again and to prove my point he nailed on on maybe his third cast with a white twister tail gig. Looked to be a nice and fat one but it self released about five feet out.
I made a few more casts and, with a sigh of relief, headed home.
