I cought him on buzzbait (color mixed yellow and green). Technically The first one was one day before but I did not land him I lost him and he was much bigger put up an amazing fight. This one was a good fight too and I was able to land him. I truely am hooked I love to fish for bass now , maybe the most exciting thus far. SKOKIE LAGOON RULES.
By the way I dont remember who said it but I cought him using a technique from a guy on the forum. I casted past the log and bumped the log and reeled it slowly and bam he or she hit it like a stole it.
