BIG BASS at Axe!!! 6/7

Went out on 6/7/19 at 8am till 12pm, first tried getting a topwater bite while also trying to cover open water with a chatter bait. Had no luck unitil I switched my baits to a slower presentation, and used a jig. Was seeing a bunch of bass cruising by the weeds near shore and where not interested in fast moving baits so I decided to toss the jig and boom caught me a nice solid bass. My estimate in weight was prolly just over 3 pounds and is one of the bigger bass I have caught at this lake. Overall tough short outing but was happy to catch this pig after not fishing Axehead for Almost two years.

Nice work coaxing a pig out of that location. It remains to me a cursed place, the land of the skunk. :(

I've even fished a handful of spring trout openers and not caught anything. I still have no fish-on-line confirmation there are fish in that place :wink:
