"Get Hooked on New York"

The good, the bad and the bass Details
Name:The good, the bad and the bass
Created By:lunkerhunter2366
Details:Was out on the water by 8:00am with only two rods deciding that i was going to dedicate the day throwing only two lures, both being swimbaits. Started chucking the bbz for the majority of the morning catching a few nice ones until the luck of the cast i hook up with a easy contender for my 2013 PB. My 7'6 Powell doubled over like a ugly stick and thought i had her pinned. Notice how i said thought.....After 15-25 secs of fighting her back to the boat she surfaced 30ft or so away from me headshook vigorously and as soon i saw that jumbo bucketmouth my bbz went flying. Dropped the rod and just sat for the next couple mins ago contemplating on drowning myself ....

As most other anglers i just had to suck it up and be happy i at least hooked up with a beast. Retied and kept at it with the bbz. Hooked up with some other quality fish. Went back through some spots already fished and started throwing the s-waver. First 4 cast i already had a nice follower. Hooked up with a fish quickly after and as soon as i go for another cast my braid wraps around the tip and BOINK! $17 lure goes flying, not to mention a NEW $17 lure. Only caught maybe a handful of fish on it. Landed less than 5ft of water, but failed to retrieve it after a solid 45mins of looking. Amazed the tip was still intact.

Aggravated at the lost of a lure and defeated by a lunker. I was pretty pissed off. I keep throwing the bbz and hook up with a few more. Called it quits by 5ish. If it wasn't for the fish i did catch the day would of been horrible. All in all it was another memorable day on the water.

Good day for swimbaits especially right around the prime big fish time when the wind picked up. Had alot of followers to giant bass and picks to schools of baitfish.
