4/6/2019_Bass Fishing Fun - Interesting day

Managed 9 that I would have kept. 5 nice Sun Fish. 1 nice bass that was hooked and got off that felt good. 5 or so toss back bass. While fishing I noticed in an area on the side of a boat launch 5 nice sized looking fish. I thought they were small gar until A small bass hit the humdinger. Upon closer inspection they were all bass. Tried to get them to bite but no joy. Fished the rest of the day in that area and returned several times to try and get them to bite. Finally one hit the humdinger. It was about 2.5 lbs. Then I got another to bite using the Texas rigged Crawfatty. It was about 2lbs.

Water was high. Wind was crazy, but the fish were hungry.

1st pic is 8 bass and a few perch. 2nd pic is one that i caught after releasing the 8. Right after that 9th fish I hooked up with another on the Humdinger and had it for about 10 feet but got off. Huge swell. 2 lbs i suspect.

Good times. Thinking about going in the AM but not sure on this weather holding off.

True. Though I suspect it's still better than the Black Iron skillet :-)
