|Details:||Hit up a medium size lake with Roger on Friday. The bite started off a little slow,no hits on buzzbaits or spinnerbaits in the morning. The soft plastic bite started to pick up about an hour into the day. Some nice 2 lb chunks to start off the action. We just moved around a bit tossing Senkos into pads. Roger caught a 3 lb plus fish, things are looking good and its not even 6:30 AM yet. I then nail a 4 lb even.
As the day progressed the fishing was great with lots of 2 and 3 pounders. Roger then hooked into and brought to the boat a 5.4 lb beauty of a bass. He also caught another 4 lb. Its hot as hell and sunny at this point, early afternoon. The bite has slowed down substantially. I then decide a need some shade for a few. I pulled into an area with about 10 ft of shade against the shoreline, parked the boat there for a few to cool off. This area never produces, it is 3 feet deep and pretty much a sandy bottem. I had on a black n blue bitsy bug jig with a black and blue chiggarcraw crazy legs trailer. I threw it out and kept the line tight and reeled slightly, this causing the jig to move forward as it falls. Tap tap, I set the hook on a solid 2 pounder. I throw it again, tap, set hook, a 1 1/2 lb fish. The 3rd cast the jig could not of sunk more than a few inches, then the most vicious hit I have EVER felt. Normally you feel the hit then the fight takes place, not this time. This fish had my rod bent over practically before I even felt the hit. It was if it was swimming top speed away from me when it hit the jig. What a rush. I've never had a bass hit this hard and fast. It turned out to be a 5 pounder,I was actually disappointed, surely I thought I had the new State record, judging by how hard she hit this thing. Awesome day, about a 21 lb bag.
Got a little video when I could of various fish.
