"Get Hooked on New York"

I'm cured Details
Name:I'm cured
Created By:badlarry
Details:After breaking my usuall late July-August slump with 2 2lbers the other week.Decided to try my spook out got my first savage hit the other night.fish jumped its whole length out of water after it and still somehow mangaged to miss.After that heart pounding action had to get back out next night.Decided to hit a spot on a lake I fish farely often that I had never fished.Walked down a long path to a nice looking spot in between an Island.Nothing but a dink off a senko.Spook wasn't doing anything so decided to put it away til later and cast senko while i still had light.Started working my way back when I decided I had to stop and give this nice open spot with surrounding downed trees and brush a try.Well cast into all those typical bass holding spots nothing. Said what the heck toss it deep maybe some underwater structure or a deep drop off.The minute it hits the water see that familiar dash to the right have a hit. I rear back and set the hook.Fish on!Can tell right away this is no Tomato Can she's a contender!Starts pulling drag right out of the gate.Fish dives deep and refuses to show itself.Keep the pressure on knowing hook can fall out any minute(I crush the barbs less harm to fish)fish finally getting closer I see that giant swirl that only lunkers make.She sees me and runs again rod is bent in half.I'm doing all I can to steer her away from brush and rocks.One last run and she is on her side and done drag her in so I can lip her.Phew notice she is barely hooked.Measure her out at 20in long and 13-14in girth wanted to get her in the water so girth may be more. My guess a little over 5lbs. As always best part watching her swim away none the worse after some reviving.Maybe my luck is finally turning!Look out Chu I'm coming for you!

I caught my over 7lb bass in my profile pic, fishing for big brown or a salmon with shiners in the spring of last yr. Stocked heavily bass def feeding on defenseless trout.

Thanks guys for the kind reviews. Felt nice to reel in a fish that wasn't skipping across the water like a stone for a change!

Weird thing is that my last 2 biggest bass have been caught at this same lake more known for its excellent trout fishing. Guess I will have to give this place some more love and target bass here more often.

I usually hit a mini slump every year at this time. Being mostly a shore fisherman, find it hard to reach the deep spots where they go when water gets in the 80's. Seems like only the small ones have been active lately. Maybe that lunker i got is a good sign or just plain blind luck! Haha.
