Bass 2019 show OFF


New member
First bass of 2019 today, a little later than last year's first (two) on Jan 2. My gear is always a Quantum Telecast 6'6 (good sensitivity and action), size 30 Nitrous reel (never bird nest), 12# C21 line, #10 swivel, 12# Seagaur red label as leader and smallest snap. I use biwaa ultra hog mostly and senko (dinger or strike king actually) sometimes. Bank fishing only.

Today the second bass of the year, 3.5 lb, Adair pond, from the very bottom. Used a 6'6 Shakespeare Excursion spinning rod, currently in Walmart for $9. The last rod that has a handle that's not insanely long; the new version is also $9 but much longer handle. This graphite rod is light and thin with a perfect medium action for everything.

I found a couple out at Bond Butte Pond yesterday but this was, by far, the more photogenic of the two...


Ya gotta love the tenacity of a 6" fish that tries to eat a 4" jerkbait.

Love to see this thread picking up. Keep 'em coming!
