Saw a Bass a few feet from the shore today. Tried jigging a plastic minnow at it for 20 min with no luck. After that I got mad and started poking it with the rod and it would barely budge. Finally annoyed him enough by jiggling the minnow by his face that he snapped at it but still couldn't hook. At one time I hooked him gently by the tail and he was spinning in circles trying to bite the minnow. He broke free, but I think after that he got mad at that little minnow and chomped on it. I pulled him in a little too quick, and he came off the hook and landed in the gravel path. I wish I took pictures but he was covered in so much gravel that I let him back in the water right away. Overall probably the funniest fishing experience I've had.
