Christmas Eve cats and a ,,,,,,,,, bass.

Postby joetrain » Dec Tue 24, 2019 3:53 pm

Launched the Hobie at 8 am today at my new cat spot. The action was on and off. Had a double at one point. Ended up with 8 blue cats and a tank bass. I caught 2 cats on a Heddon Sonar and the rest on cut bait. The bass also hit the cut bait. She taped out at just shy of 21 inches. No clue on the weight so chime in on what you think she might have weighed.

The big cats still eluded me today. That’s ok I got nothing but time.

Merry Christmas everyone and God bless.

Nice bass Joe. My guess is 5+ lbs. Happy Holidays!
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Sounds like a smile a mile kinda outing to me Joe. Without a girth measurement you can’t use all the formulas out there but probably high side of 4 or low side of 5. Whichever, it’s a nice one
