Great job, Joe :) One question: do you ever have trouble pulling those bass out of the water and onto the pier/wall that you fish from? Or do you use a net?

No normally I don't have a problem, when I throw tubes Im using 8# P-Line and that stuff is more like 10#. I also use my UL and 4# and never broke off pulling them out either, well maybe once or twice with the 4#.

First off, dude, your one big boy! :shock: No fish is going to out fight you that's for sure.

Second, WOW, that smallie is a PIG! :shock:

Where were those fish taken again? If you don't wanna give up your honey hole, that's totally understandable. You can always PM me. :wink:

Henry's is having a carp contest??? What's the prize? And what are the requirements. WCF has some fine carp anglers that may be interested.

Lol 6.3 225.... If funny cause Ive been skippin the gym to go fishing like crazy these last 2 months I feel like crap. This fishing stuff is addictive....

Yes that thing was a Monster, my biggest was 19 3/4" that one was alittle over 21"s 5+ #s easly. There was one that big or bigger swimming around where we were today, it was also a pig he hit my minnow 2 time with his tail then ignored it.

Starting the 1st of June they have contests that last 2 weeks and it goes on for a few months, well I should say the end and start over every 2 weeks. If I remember correctly 1st place is 100 bucks 2nd 75 bucks and 3rd 50 bucks.... It used to be 125 for 1st then 2nd was 100 buck and 3rd was 75. I believe theres a 4th place but Im not sure what it is. Its a big fish contest and the is for these species of fisn, Salmon/Trout, Carp, Catfish, Perch and Panfish are by themselves. Each one has a 1st - 4th place prize.

Way to go, Joe :) That's a nice looking largemouth. By the way, any tips on free parking near where you fish? :wink: :wink: I know parking at Navy Pier can be pricey.

You need a parking pass from Henrys, 10 bucks for 2 months. The pass is good for Burnham and DuSable...
