Date Of My Catch: 07-14-2014
Who'd thought a jacket is required on the 14th of July. This crazy weather is messing with my wardrobe management and is probably messing with bass behavior as well because bit has been slow for me the lately. Anyway, I had about 30 minute before taking my son to his little league game so I figure I wet the line for a little bit. The War Eagle 3/8 double willow was already on the rod so I decided to just fish with it. Started out burning it along the wind blown shore got nothing. Then went with the stop-n-go and nothing. Finally, I went with the medium retrieve with the occasional shake and bam! This handsome looking bass hit it hard and went straight for the weeds. Took me a couple of minutes to get it out of the salad bowl for a #selfie then head out to watch the kids win the game.
