5/16 windy beast

Postby ChicagoBassPlayer » May Tue 16, 2017 8:38 pm

Been a long while since I've posted anything. Keeping it short... very windy, shallow square bill cranking, beast. Casted out, was about done reeling in and just decided to swim it a little in front of me and a big ol bass just slammed it and basically hooked itself. Didn't really set the hook so I was a bit afraid it would come off but it was on with both trebles. Literally 2 feet in front of me and WHAM!

No need to set the hook with trebles. Great post!
