"Get Hooked on New York"

Foreign Larry Hunting: Part 3- "Moonless Larry" Details
Name:Foreign Larry Hunting: Part 3- "Moonless Larry"
Created By:napa
Details:After the morning bite, we did some water skiing, batting cages, go carts, and of course kept the buzz going. We decided to head about a little earlier than the previous night. We got on the lake around 8:30pm to yet another moonless night. The water was completely glass yet again. We headed to the original cove and began to jitterbug. I was using a green jitter with black spots. I tossed a cast between a fallen tree and a dock. Bloop, Bloop, Bloop…jitter is about 10ft from the boat when a fish just smashed it. It jumped 3 times and the battle was on. It was difficult to set the hook since the fish hit so close to the boat, I didn’t have much time to react. Thankfully a got the fish into the boat, thanks to a great net job by Valpey. Yup, another slob of a large mouth bass. This Foreign Larry weight it a 3.11 lbs and had a length of 17 inches. It was becoming all to common as 4 of my last 4 catches dating back to the previous weekend had been slobs. My arrogance grew like the hair on Valpey’s head. We didn’t have much action the rest of the night and I had a disgruntled angler on my hands. Valpey was basically using fish repellant as body spray before heading on to the lake. Probably not the greatest angling tactic I have seen. He was getting frustrated with the lack of action and lack of Larry on his hook. Though beyond happy to see Lunkers in the boat, he needed to land one for the trip to be complete. He had basically lost 5 worms, 3 lures, restrung his line 5 times, and broke a pole over my head out of frustration. I agreed, his time was over due.
