Karen and myself ventured out to one of my 55 acre secrets given to me by a friend from another site in search of some early largemouth... It took a mere 5 casts to boat the first bass of the year, a 3 pounder... Karen let me catch a few before she got in on the action... Total, we caught 12... All but 3 of them were keepers... They really wanted red or chartreuse YoZuri Rattlin' Vibe lipless crankbaits... Fish were roaming mostly in 5-8 feet of water and we were tickling the tops of the weeds... Water was 49-50 degrees and we were surprised the fish were so cooperative... - BPM

Awesome job!
Awesome bassing! Loved the videos

Well done! Way to get onto some early season bass.
Way to go guys, certainly more to show than I got this weekend. Asses generously kicked.

I had a great time even with the coho skunk!
This is a rather long video showcasing 7 of the 12 fish caught, but you all know how to use the fast forward button. :wink:

Now we gotta get some footage of some 4 and 5 pounders in the next couple weeks! Gonna have to pull out the plastics... Them big ones are too lazy to compete with them 2-3 pounders... - BPM
Nice job guys nice video Karen
