Details:With the warmer than average weather today, I decided to take the kayak out one more time before putting it, and probably my fishing tackle as well, away for the season.

It was a slow afternoon - only a couple of fish hooked and lost - as I approached the train trestle bridge at sunset next to Route 20 in Wayland where I had put in.

The river is high and the current stronger than usual, so I wedged the kayak against the shore south of the trestle and started casting a wacky-rigged watermelon green Senko worm near the pilings. About five casts in I got a good bite and set the hook and knew right away it was a big one. I don't have a scale, but I measured this largemouth bass at 17 inches and estimate the girth at 15 inches, which would put it at about 3.5 pounds, my personal best so far.

Great way to end the fishing season!
