"Get Hooked on New York"

Anyway, I had Friday morning off and was debating whether to go fishing or not. My back has been killing me all week and I wasn't sure hours in a Kayak would help.

Since it is my only real chance to get out this weekend I decided to head back to Hopedale Pond. I had been there a couple of weeks ago and really liked the potential.

I get in my yak and start paddling. I had a KVD Square Bill (the big one) tied on and started casting towards some pads as I moved along. On one retrieve the lure got caught up in a little weeds and rose to the surface dragging them along. About 10 feet from the boat I watch this mass come up and inhale the whole thing (lure + weeds).

The fish immediately started to take line and that got me excited. I finally get the fish to the boat and it was Huge! At least big for me. It weighed in at 4lb 15oz. So freaking close to the 5lb mark but either way it's the biggest fish I've ever put on a scale.

I took some pics (which is hard by yourself with a fish that large!) and sent Larry on his way and I was on cloud 9.

Fished for about 2 hours collecting 6lm and a pic on Worms, Buzz Bait and the KVD.

All in all a great start to the weekend.

@fishforbass I didn't make it. I was feeling kind of sore and didn't have the energy for the trip. I'll def make it next time though :)
