Got out tonight 6-7:30. I was fishing the weedbeds along the shore by the drain/spillway thing. It looked great, placid water, warm but not hot, lots of bass boils everywhere. I bent down to pick a burr of my shoe and WHAM! This thing almost tore the rod out of my hands. He musta jumped out of the water 2 or 3 times before I finally landed him. 15" I would say around 3.5 lbs (not an exact measurement). My PB bass at LA.
He bashed a shallow running Excalibur about 20 ft from shore. Inhaled the lure, had to get it out of his throat.
Great day for me
The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad. ~A.K. Best
