AFTER GOING AND GETTING MY DRIVERS LICENSE.. AND INSURANCE I QUCKLY HEADED OVER TO THE RIVER IN HOPES OF FINESSING A FEW LARGE MOUTH BASS. A GUY FISHING, JIMMI WHO GUIDES FOR WALLEYE AND MUSKIE ON THE WISCONSIN RIVER HAD CAUGHT TWO PREVIOUS TO MY ARRIVAL. HE WAS THROWING A 5" GREEN TUBE ON A SIZE 3/0 WIDE GAP RED HOOK. SO AFTER I STARTED FISHING 15-20 MINUTES LATER HE LEFT. I STARTED THROWING A BLACK/RED STORM FINESSING WORM WITH A SIZE 2/0 WIDE GAP EAGLE CLAW LAZER SHARP HOOK. I CAUGHT TWO AND MISSED A THRID ON A LINE SNAP... A NICE ONE BUT NOTHING GREAT THE LINE SNAPPED ON THE HOOK SET, FIRST TIME I FORGET TO RE TIE MY KNOT :aaathumbsdown:
