Well today was a pretty good day. I had my buddy come up to spend the day fishing who I have been friends with since we were little. I am teaching him how to use a jig, and he ended up catching 10 bass, flipping with his first day. Not bad at all. Now he is Hooked on it.

The water was 74.x * when I got out. This is a great water temp for the big girls. Well around 10am, I put this girl in the boat...

7lbs 12 oz's



and from my buddy's I phone...



I knew she was a big girl when I set the hook, and she had the upper hand on this one. I told my buddy, to just grab the net. We netted her, and I thought for sure she was going to be in the 8's, but she probably pooped that extra 4 oz's on my boat before I even weighed her (seriously, he shit everywhere). My buddy was dumbfounded. This was the first time he has been on this lake since we went out there in a small row boat when we were kids. He has never seen a bass in person over 6lbs. The best part about it, was I boated her next to another bass boat ;)

We ended up catching about 20 fish between us. Most were small with a few in the mid to high 4's. Nice, healthy fish and obviously eating well.

Great job man that's a catch! We hit Saratoga on Saturday, didnt do too hot. Had five fish for six lbs. tough fishing in all that wind we had. Just couldn't get anything with size. U beat my whole bag with one fish haha.

where is the pic of the other guy's big gal??
:p

Congratz on getting the 7.xx you been craving!!!! Like Seb said, now go get us a 8 to see!!
I was trying to get him a 5lber or bigger, but unfortunately the biggest he got was a 2.14. I set him up with the same exact setup I was using too as I have triples of lures I find that work.

by the end of August hopefully I can find one bigger then 8lbs. This guy is weeks earlier from when I usually get the ones over 7lbs.

I havent been on saratoga yet this year. Honestly, when I go there its to walleye fish now. That lake is pretty disappointing how it fishes now. Its a lake that you can get alot of small guys, but to get the big ones it really is pure luck. The fishing there isnt like what it used to be 6+ years ago
