"Get Hooked on New York"

Stump jumping and line breaking Details

Details:Last night my father and I went out to Stump Pond around 6pm in the canoe for a bit of fishing. We each grabbed a dozen large minnows from Jerry's and used them with a rattle bobber. We set up around the island in the middle of lake. We forgot an anchor so we were drifting a lot which proved problematic after the 4th or 5th time one of our lines got snagged in the weeds. The bass were definitely hitting and were all over the minnows. Within an hour I was able to land 3 decent sized bass (all around 2 pounds). After a slight location change I hooked into what seemed like a monster. The fish ripped the bobber straight down upon it hitting the water. After fighting the fish for a solid minute and a half the line snapped. I retied, recast, and the same exact thing happened: instant hit, fight, line snap. (Not to self, never buy Stern 8 pound mono from WalMart). I switched over to 10'' black texas rigged worm and caught another decent bass. As the night approached I tied on a top water frog and after about 20 minutes of casting into lilly pads I snagged a 3.5 pounder. A nice night on the lake with the old man, and it only makes it better that his 2 month dry streak of going bass-less in MA continues. He actually refuses to fish with me anymore because as he says "you use all the same damn bait and lures I do and you always catch f******* fish. I'm done"

I think I'll probably wait until a lot of surface weeds die off before I fish here again. It's like trying to paddle across a carpet right now.
