A couple of weeks back I shot up to scout a WMA I was not familiar with. I noticed there were some ponds on the ariels so I brought the canoe with me, and an assortment of Beetlespins, and my secret weapon. A couple of small shallow running crankbaits. I was hoping for some panfish, but the bass bite was so good I couldn't stop. I caught 9 bass in about 2 hours. lost a few lunkers, and was able to boat this beauty. Fishing with a smaller freshwater spinning out fit with 6lb test. The fish measured in at 24 inches with out pinching the tail. she was a toad in my book since I don't bass fish often.
