|Details:||Went out with a buddy from work that I knew only because we both like fishing and with a 35 thousand dollar Nitro boat that's also a plus I would say! Good guy, never hung out with him out of work until the day we went out on this trip. I left my place in Attleboro at like 4am (insanely tired) and went immediately to Dunkin Doughnuts for a coffee and two donuts (real healthy I know).
I got to the ramp at 4:50am and he was already there and took a few casts already. Oh my god, this guy is insane about fishing like me, so no waiting on launching and what not. We started off casting near some spots towards the back of the lake a bunch of times right at sunrise and this is where we got the most fish and bites. We got 8 in total but I got the lunker of the day. Looks to be over 4 pounds, but in all the excitement and having to take it out of the livewell, I didn't weight her, lol.
The catch: I had a craw softbait on a 4/0 hook exposed and threw near a bunch of lily pads but casted farther towards deeper waters and dragged it in with its plastic arms flailing and apparently pissing bass off. BAM, she nails it and pulled a hell of amount of drag in the time I took to reel her in.
And I always weigh 2.5 pounders (go figure)...here are a few pics. Nice healthy bass love to feast on craws here apparently as we took a small bass out with a craw claw sticking out of the fishes throat. We fished from 5am to 8:30am, and I had the time of my life fishing from a real bass boat...damn you pros!
He was pretty pissed though I got the biggest of the day, but hey, you never know what your going to catch.
Hope you guys like the fish pics and write up, I also got a video, I will try to find it and post it with this trip.
