 DuPage Angler WBaseball & His Mays Lake Pig
Well, I woke up this morning and the first thing I knew I wanted to do was to go fishing. Luckily for me, my mother had a meeting at a school around Mays Lake and dropped me off at the lake on her way. As soon as I got there I realized how hot it was and started to think this was a bad idea, but as I got close to the water I changed my mind as I saw how clear this lake was.

After fishing in the same general area for around a hour with no luck and a rapidly approaching deer, I moved right to the next exposed area of water and set up a brand new 4in. plastic worm. After fishing there for awhile and landing only one small bass I moved right once again to the next open spot. While fishing this spot, a few blue gill ripped the tail off of my worm and i decided to put a larger plastic on the hook. After just three or four casts with a 7in. plastic, I spot this massive bass come out of no where hitting my worm and the fight was on. After a minute or two and a couple jumps, I was able to grab it out of the water and began to yell in accomplishment. Hahaha. After a few quick pictures I released this beast back into the clear waters. Thinkin this was a 5lb if not more but ill leave it up to you guys.

Nice bass man! It pays to hit and run for bass. If you have 40 minutes take your gear and stick a pig. It makes the day go by with great visions of landing an oinker.
