Had a little more time on my hands,was going solo,was also launching about 30 minutes earlier than yesterday's trip with older son and grandson and trip got off to slow start but very nice finish with me getting personal best(5.02 on digital scale)!!Nabbed one nice sac a lait at fish magnet(first spot)and let two feisty goggle-eyes go(always amazed at aggressive nature of such a small fish).T-Funky getting so fine,hard to believe how clear she is right now and dem blue Spoiler Shad with either pink or white Crappie Psychic trailers extremely hard to beat.Was using chartreuse Crappie Psychic trailers on bunch of previous trips,not sure exactly when I switched over to pink but definitely seemed to make a difference.Searched around for sac a lait,pulled one from under boat dock as well as two fat bass and was almost ready to toss in towel and head home for plenty of gardening and yard work and was deep-jigging blue Spoiler Shad with white Crappie Psychic trailer and found fine T-Funky mansion with huge wharf and had made maybe 3-5 casts,jigging the Spoiler Shad and watched line go crazy,initially thought perhaps world-record sac a lait hit lure til I set hook,had plenty of line get stripped off,watched brute of a bass tail walk at least 3 times and estimated bass between 6-7 lbs it was dat big!!!Shot few pics and texts to bunch of fishing buddies and made my way back towards 3 Rivers Rd Launch.love dat lil rinky-dink launch cause hardly anyone uses it!!Got home,put lunker on digital scale and she tipped it at 5.02,my personal best,not just on T-Funky but biggest to date and gonna get her to Sonny Miller Taxidermy asap for nice mount.Saw some HUGE bass at first spot and they were chasing perch,bet tossing Rapala Pumkinseed Perch crankbait would destroy some big bass!!!My luck is bet I nab much bigger bass on next trip.Gotta love dat T-Funky and was absolute blast nabbing trophy bass on ultra-light spinning gear!!!Showed her off to older couple I met back at launch and hubby noticed de Mandevillian a die-in-de-wool lure fisherman,don't need no stinking bait,EVER,and much more challenging and rewarding nabbing fine fish with lures!!!
