Went to a private pond this morning with by son and brother-in-law. The morning started out real slow and the fish didn't really start hitting until about 10 am. I had four strikes before I got my first fish. The fish were really biting light and you really had to wait to set the hook, which is probably why I had so many misses. Anyway, I caught my biggest bass ever this morning, as did my son. I think that we caught about 25 fish in all today.

I would say that what we missed in numbers, we definitely made up for in size of fish today.

Thanks Sean. It was really exciting. The funny thing was that there were no bass that I could see swimming around. Usually at this pond you can see them swimming, but the weeds were really thick and the fish were down in them. I saw this fish follow a smaller fish in that a friend of mine caught that was with us. Then all of a sudden I saw it there and the minute I brought my plastic past it, he took it. Everything that I learned from sight fishing the WWD finally paid off!

I just fixed the original pic in this post. I had changed that pic to an avatar and it was shrunk. Now it shows the full size pic again. I wish that I had held the fish better to show its full glory.

I wanna talk my friend into going back there next week. The bass were still not very active when we where there Saturday and now that the warmer weather is holding things should get better for sure. We didn't catch the quantity of bass that we normally do, but the quality was definitely there.
