Details:Got out this morning early...on the water by 5:45. Bit was slow, as was the wind, until about 8. The wind picked up and I finally caught a bass, and a few other non-target species. 10am comes around and I miss 2 big bass back to back on the jig. Not sure what the deal was, but the hook wasn't holding solid. One was a good one, probably 4-5lbs, and the other probably low 3's, as I saw them both before they spit my jig back into my face.

I trimmed the weed guard back a little, and started getting some solid hook ups. A few in the 2lb range within a half hour had me wondering why I woke up so early and rushed out to the lake, but anyways, kept fishing and battling the wind that decided to get pretty strong. I cast towards a thick patch of weeds and landed the jig just before them. Felt a litttle tap tap and set the hook on something heavy. The battle ensued for a few minutes, and I could tell it was a decent fish. I finally landed it, snapped a pic or 2, and weighed it in at 4lbs 15oz. The 5 pound club has eluded me so far this year, but only by a single ounce!!
