I've been working my way through a general slowdown of late, but both Friday and today I was able to snag a nice late bass to make the day worth it.
Friday I had been working both the blue/black chatter and some senkos and reached the far portion of the Lake (respective to the parking lot that is...). After doing a few fan casts with the chatter with no result I was deciding whether to just call it a skunk and head home or press on as the sun set. I decided one more set of casts with the senko and on the third cast got nailed by another 17" bass. I believe it's my third that size this season. Persistence paid off and I took my non-skunk happily back to the car. The selfies on this day weren't good so I won't torture people with them.
Today (Monday) I almost left my chatter rod in the car but I figured if I was going to see some results on it I'd have to throw it. So I grabbed both my wacky setup and my chatter setup. I caught a few small guys along the way and once again found myself staring at a possible end to the day in unsatisfying fashion. Persistence (or more like stubbornness heh) would once again pay off. This time I shook off a notion to head home and picked up my chatter rod. A few casts later about half way in it got devoured by a jumping frothing splashing madly trying to walk on water big bass. Huge blowup to say the least. I was able to land 'im but could barely lift it out of the water. I was a tank with huge shoulders and while it only taped out at 16" I think it was still probably my finest Beck bass, partially since I've been throwing that chatter for weeks to no result. Needless to say it made my day. I even smiled in the selfie:
