Helluva a good birthday weekend on the water

kodiakzachkodiakzach Posts: 6,078 Admiral
Spent my birthday weekend with 5 hours fishing on Friday with a co-worker, and 6 hours Saturday with my son Josh.

Co-worker was stoked because he got his biggest Bass ever.
Josh was stoked because he got his biggest fish this year.

All told we caught about 50 bass the last two days. Enjoy the pics:








Me with a double:




This was my co-workers biggest bass to date. He just took up bass fishing recently:




Me with a foul hooked crappie (which I originally thought was a tilapia). Don't see these much in our lake. He pimp slapped me across the face with his tail and we got a good laugh:


Dinner and beer with friends on Friday:

    But that foul hooked "tilapia" is actually a Speckled Perch.... Yankees call them Crappie.

    Wow. You are right. Been so long since I've caught either didn't even realize. That much time on a canoe in the sun makes your brain go to mush :/

    Verrrry nice!!!!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than ive been doing lately!!!!!!! Did you get most of them on that black worm?
  • kodiakzachkodiakzach Posts: 6,078 Admiral
    All fish were caught on stick worms --- and all fish lived and were successfully released. We had the big girl out of the water for about a minute and I thought she was gonna need reviving. She surprised us and splashed the crap outta me as soon as I put her back in :)

    That is the abbreviated alien video version. There is another 137,562,268 nautical miles to the real Longcat. Volcanos, underground, outer space and all kinds of trippy stuff in between...
