    Fat Bass

    First decent fish of 2020. Caught on an Eastern shore farm pond. Only 15" but weighed out at 3#.
    He ate a Texas rigged Yamamoto 5" watermelon red flake Senko. The pickerel were biting real good too.

    Nice bass! How about this warm weather. I hope it last a few days. Was it windy where you were fishing? I had a hard time with the wind this morning.

    Thanks Andy.
    Yeah, it was crankin' out there.
    Fortunately I was able to position myself with the wind to my back making for long casts. Although my braid was getting blown all over the place once I hit my target.
    Pretty hard to throw a low profile casting reel into the wind without getting severe backlash and wind knots.

    Also nailed a huge fat 24" pickerel up at "the lake". Wasn't able to land him on the dock without a net for pictures...darn!

    I hear you about the pickerel. I've been hooking a few also at the lake. The bass are hitting real good. Now I know the lake is loaded with bass. Catching a load of baby bass, along with a few good ones. Can't make up my mind where to go fishing this morning. Bass, crappie, or yellow perch. Life of a fisherman is not easy.

    I check the forum everyday, just don't post much anymore. Now that I really don't fish anymore (health reasons) I have nothing worthwhile to contribute. Guess you can call an arm chair fisherman. As long as folks like you, Andy, Judy and a few others keep posting I'll keep lurking.

    Come on Nick, I know you can make it out to the West Coast to fish King's, Halibut and Lingcod one last time...
