I just found a picture I took last fall, pretty sure this is the second bass I ever caught. Got it on a nightcrawler near the mouth of poplar creek at the NW side of the north bode lake. When I caught it, I was sure it was a largemouth, but looking at it now, with the red eyes and mouth that seems to not extend past the eye, is this a smallie?
Forgive me, I'm still a total newbie and am very bad at fish ID'ing. Either way, here's proof that there is at least one bass at Bode. At least there was last september!
