Took the dogs out for a little run this evening grabbed the rod fired up the quad and headed for the back yard pond. got out there and the water was glass pulled up imediately my black lab is in the drink she thinks its her private pool.got her out after a couple minutes and started to make a few casts. out of the corner of my eye i saw some movement and turned my attention to it. Realized reel quick it was a school of babies runnin from somethin . watched for about a minute when thar she blew big ol swirl and wake as the babies exploded on the surface . It was a long ways but the ol curado didn't let me down .Put her right on the money first cast and the second she hit the water bump bump and fish on! Put up a great fight till she balled up in the weeds " glad I use braid". To make the evening even better topwatered two 12 " models about 10 minutes later in another spot. Measured the rod after I got back she was 19.5" figure right around 4 lbs, took a couple pics here ya go 050.jpg 051.jpg 052.jpg

Nice! Know where my pup gets her affinity for water from! She thought she could walk on water like the ducks she tried getting....mhm. I someday will have to try this bass thing again.
