wife went to the fair today so i went fishing for a few hours... started out i was just going to fish off the dock a bit and see if i got anything. well i cast a few times, no luck. then cast over by a down log in the water and thought i had a bite, but then i figured naw that's a log... finally got the line to start comming up a little bit then BAM strait to the bottom of the lake my line went! fought for 2 or 3 minutes decided to tighten down the drag and yank the fish in and snapped my 12pound brand new Pline fluorocarbon line! :mad: sooo then i decided to take the boat out and caught these guys! IMG_0122.jpg was first and the biggest! my sandal is a size 13 by the way. i lost track of how many i ended up catching the this next one was probibly the average size IMG_0127.jpg
and finally what would bass fishing be without catching a tiny one on a jig that's bigger than itself? IMG_0125.jpg

Nice job knew that last trip had to be a fluke ! did ya get them topwater or on the sink, was it the bait of confidence ? sounds like the first one might have been a hog!! Taking my son out with my Salmon guy tomorrow gonna chase some nooks on the Siuslaw at the crack of dawn .

yup, that's what it was! that is the first time i've ever had it break though! it was a little frustrating after that i swithed to my pole with the braided line on it and had a lot better luck :) i don't east bass mainly because im way to lazy to clean them and then cook them

made it out again tonight, was a little worried at first at all the dark and ominous clouds. this was from my front porch IMG_0134.jpg

i took my fly pole out with a worm that pretty much looked like the bottom one, and by the time i was done the top was all that was left so i decided i'd better come home since all i took out was my pole and that one worm.

got acouple nice shots of the sunset atleast :) IMG_0139.png

and as i was heading back in it got nice and calm IMG_0140.jpg

it's a little harder to land em with the fly pole only landed 4 and lost a lot more

its always worse when i break off a bass on 20lb line in open water as often as i do!!! watch your flouro line if it nicks its much worse than mono for nicks overall strngth is better i.m.o but the small nicks and cuts can be a big downfall i try to use flourocarbon for most of my applications
