Had an opportunity to hit the lake at famous Liberty Trace Ranch just about ten miles north of the LA state line as the crow flies. Caught a nice mess of eating bass as the lake is full of 1 to 1-1/2 pounders and they do need to be removed. Had a good bass create a swirl behind my topwater bait and then suck it down with no splash or strike whatsoever. Ran about 20 yards down the side of the lake and put up a good fight. Released and swimming well after landing. Great day to be on the water!
