    Summer Bass are hitting now.

    Put the canoe in the lake last night right at dark, and after a slow start we had an awesome time. Catch and release for sure, but we caught 43 between us. Good ole plastic brush hogs. Good times. Anybody else wearing them out ?

    18.5 lb. in 5 largemouth 2 Fridays ago jv. Set a record for our small local lake and won the tourney. My son had a 6lb 9oz.er. So far, one of the best fishing years in recent memory.

    Love that avatar.

    Went again yesterday morning. We were on the water from 8 am till noon. Had a blast. 2 of us caught over 40 largemouth bass. We had 3 apiece over 20 in. Good times for sure. We had to quit at noon though. Way too hot.

    About to quit this am as only a couple of small bass were landed, then "BOOM" 6 lb. Largemouth. He was over 22 in. and just flat out huge. Used the good old brush hog again. And yes, I let him go. Didn't want to though.

    Fished yesterday morning by myself (it was heavenly). Couldn't catch a fish off any plastics. Actually, I did catch two fish under 12" on a trick worm and a baby brush hog. Then I switched and started fishing main lake points with a Lucky Craft deep crank (20ft) in american shad and wore 'em out. Caught 3 15", a 17", and an 18". Caught all of those the last 1/2 hour I was there. Had to get back or I'd have still been there.

    A little slow this a.m., but I did get 4 over 12 in. Zero early on though. I had to switch to black/blue spinnerbait (mini). Man we need rain here bad.
