Fished Oakton Pond for the first time today twice. First from 11:30am-2:30pm. Cloudy, SE winds 5-10mph, temps about 60.

Met up with Tony, Frank, Spiroh, and PaulH. Tony and Frank got some real nice bass - up to 19"! I got 3 bass - 10", 14", and 15". Crankbaits and a custom JNap jig did the trick for me.

Then went again from 5:30pm - 7:30pm. Met up with Aris. He got a 13" bass and I got another 15" bass.

Good time!

definitely great day fishin'! wish i could've fished longer but I had to go to work. Caught 3 bass; 1 on a lucky craft rattle trap and 2 on jig and finesse worm.

Jason, is that jig tipped with a plastic craw as a trailer?

crank baits. woo hoo!!! started fishing this morning around
7:30 a.m. throwing the popular chrome bleeding rattle trap
and what do you know first bass of the day but lost :cry: .
thats ok though a few minutes later right on the end of the retrieve
dropped it right in front of the drain and up came this huge
18.5 inch bass inhaled the rattle

I then switched to a dt flat shallow shad crank in which i landed this
a 25 inch carp about 10 pounds

lipped and all it was also 4 pound test because i forgot change line
on my spinning rigs :p
moved around a little more and missed a few good ones dinally got a huge 19 incher on a firetiger shallow dt crank


met up with gither then worked are way around not to long he got on
and landed this 18.5 incher

missed some more bass, damn rattle traps and cranks jason showed up later landed a few also but i lost a couple monsters right at the end two in a row what a buzz kill... :cry: one must have at least been 21 inches :shock:
heres one of the other bass i caught it was about 16.5 inches
