PG Report: 8/15/06 ..... Near the End

Neil, Shane, My Girl Friend Sara and I Got out to try and Get some bass. The Most Challenging Fish to Catch in my Book. With each Fish having a Different personality and each having there own challenge Why not ! I did not catch one Today but It Actually Didn't Bother me It Feels Good... I was Happy to get out I had a great Time and it was a Wonderful Day. I did Try To catch a Bass Using Everything I had in my Fishing Arsenal just wasn't happening. Sara Caught 3 Two large mouth and one Rock bass, one Large mouth being an easy 2 1/2 pounds.. but wasn't able to hold it long enough for a pic. Neil caught 3 And Shane Caught 6 ok Size no Big guys on a Crank bait.
