Possible tie for bass record...WHAT A DAY!!
Dang!! Pics on the way....!! I was flipping and pitching my black trick worm when I had a hit that about broke my wrist. The rod slammed against the boat...I used my entire body to set the hook...I thought it was a giant gator...I'm so glad I had my 40 pound braid on...Whatever it was pulled the boat about 10 feet and then I felt the slack..Oh my goodness..fattest bass I ever saw...after 3 more runs my wife swooped her up..My scales showed 23 pounds..FREAKED me out..I'm still shaking and my heart is pounding. We rushed the fish to a nearby tackle shop and it was 22. 87 pounds...a new world record...a pril fool.

I wish you the best C7, hoping you are on them spawning females down there. Really looking forward to the ice coming off the lakes in the coming weeks.

Hey thanks Buck...I hope you all noticed the April Fools at the bottoom of the thread...If that was a true story, you would have seen me on the 6:00

In all seriousness, I have been catching many bass but no giants. I think I know what might be happening. Normally I'm a die hard flipping and pitching man...well, this year there is not much of a structured shoreline. Bass can spawn in water in 2-8 feet if neccessary. Well, recently I've been catching my bigger fish in 5 feet of water on my drifting rod. When I can't find the fish I'll pitch and lay a second rod over my foot drifting in the secondaries 4-8 foot...lately I've been catching them on that secondary rod. If you try this...use braid on your secondary rod, mono has a tendency to kink up when drifting a worm, even a non- curly tail.
