Went to the old bass pond today for first time this year. It felt so good being out on the water, the sun blazing down. Fished for about an hour total-was getting ready to bag it when I had a hookup with a big mama (im guessing it was a girl)-she softly tap-tap-taped my 7 inch. berkely power worm before inhaling it...i set the hook...she promptly went DOWN...drag was too loose...tightened it...resumed fighting the fish only to feel that my line was now hung up on some obstruction and SNAP! Oh well. What can one do but curse and re-tie. Hit it hard for a good 15 min. after breaking OFF and nothing. At least I had my first hookup of the year with my old friend the Bucketmouth. Hoping she'll want to dance again soon.
