"Get Hooked on New York"

Flip-a-holic Details
Created By:lunkerhunter2366
Details:Decided to take the boat out to my favorite spot and sure payed off. Arrived around 12:00 with bluebirds and a moderate breeze. At first i was just trying to get bit throwing crankbaits, swimbaits, jigs, but that wasn't doing much besides a random pickerel on a jig. Then i committed to flipping the shallow banks with a jig. The jig bite turned on and i stared rippin lips. I flipped every bit of bank cover and was dead sticking for around 3-30 secs. Ended pulling out some monster bass including a 8.5LB LMB (I feel like im going to get attacked for posting weight, but thats what my scale said and i check my scale every once in awhile to make sure its accurate) There was just lots of big bass in super shallow cover. Most of the hogs were under deep brush and a couple were just cruising around(caught swimming the jig back to the boat)
So i was flipping like there was no tomorrow. I reached this spot a little ways down the bank after the second big LMB and it was a THICK overhang bush. I every so perfectly flipped and BAMMM!!!! I hooked somthing that felt 2x the 8.5 time stood still and i panicked because with my drag locked down she ripped some line along with almost my arm. I saw this fat goliath dark mass stared shooting off in the blink of a eye whatever it was got off... Im almost 95% it was a bass just by the way it all happened and the fact i barely caught any pickerel. I was a little heart broken just thinking that i could hooked a bigger fish than the 8.5. Nothing i can do except keep going back. My dad and brother wanted to come out for a bit. By the time i picked them up(around 5:00) and started fishing again the flipping bite was gone. Ended up boating a couple more fish. Nothing huge though. Still was one of the best days i've every had fishing. A great day to remeber!
