    My son caught one for the wall

    I'm going to get it mounted for his birthday. Weighed 7-8 pounds and caught on a topwater. We caught a total of 7 bass in about a hour.


    Here's a picture of him with his baby sister and the fish. She will turn 1 year old on May 24th.

    Well he's on a roll. He caught this 6 pouinder today in another pond in his friend's neighborhood. This also makes 26 bass, 4 specks and 2 catfish we've caught this week. :smoking

    He is quite the accomplished bass fisherman. I think 6 pounds was my largest and it took 50 years to catch it! Congratulations on some fine catches.

    Believe it our not he caught it with a $1.39 1/4 oz bettle spin from Wally World. The white one with a red spot. The bass have been feeding heavy on small minnows so we've down sized our baits. Been doing pretty good with a white fluke rigged with just a worm hork. You gotta put a twist in it a twitch it so it rolls like a wounded bait. We catch most of our fish with this lure.

    LOL He's already caught one bigger than me and I've been bass fishing for over 30 years. I caught plenty of 6 pounders but I'm still waiting on that 8 lb +.

    Dang!!!

    How could you tell they were feeding on small minnows? Busting them on the shore or bass fry, late in the season for fry though it seems?

    Sounds like thats matching the hatch like a charm!!!!!!!!
