Details:So after Hurricane Neil yesterday at Billington, I shot Damon a text letting him know I didn't hook up my fish finder and asking when he would be able to do it. He called me and we decided I would swing by on my way home from the Cape this morning and possibly head out to one of his honey holes nearish his house (we'll call it Pond X). Damon hooked up my new fish finder and off we went to Pond X. We probably got on the water right at 12, I had to get off the water for 2:15, so a short outing it would be. Following Damon's Yoda like instruction, we headed to some coves that he knows bass would be spawning at shortly, so he figured that they would be beginning to head up, water temps were around 44.

We both started throwing jigs and working em slowly and it didn't take long til we both failed a setting into a few of em. Damon switched a shakey head and bagged the first pounder or so. I continued to repeatedly miss hooksets like an utter noob and Damon decided he was going to try his 100" hudds because that's what he does. We worked our way around a few spots Damon liked and he missed a couple hooks up with his car sized swimbait. It was close to 1:45 and we decided to head back to the first area we started because we were getting bites there.

Damon hooks up again with his volkswagon but never saws the fish. I am stilling throwing my jig at this point when I get the tell tale tap and pressure on the line. I set it (all with gear only being used once yesterday) and the games on. Damon sees the flash and is like "yeah I'll grab the net." We finally see the girl and she's a bigun. Damon nets her, she spits the jig in the net. Took the obvious pictures and weigh her, 5lb15oz, my new personal best. I guess my new goal is 6lb this year. Sorry Shawn but no new boat curse for me.
