Hey WCF,
I was fishin a local residential pond near my school's campus (the U. of I in Urbana-Champaign) and caught the biggest bass of my life!!

I pitched a texas-rigged sweet beaver (black and blue fleck) past this drainage pipe, and slowly dragged it past the pipe when my line started moving off to the side slowly so I set the hook hard. Man, I can't get over how awesome these baits are!!

Measured at 21" and 5lb and 10 oz on my Berkeley digital scale. I took a pic of the lure that I caught the fish on too, I cut my line immediately after the fish was released so that I could hold onto and cherish the left over torn soft-plastic... heh heh.

Fishing is so freaking awesome!!!!!!!



:D
