Mike Quigley caught this giant bass at about 11 am today on a small jig tipped with a plastic tail and a waxworm:
He followed that bass up about an hour later with this nice one too:
Then he was reeling in an 11" bass when a mega giant grabbed it and took him for a little ride. Eventually she let go and Mike reeled in the bass who probably was really happy to get out of that lake. Here are the scar marks:
We caught plenty of "cull" bass today as well...
We did catch about 150 bluegill altogether, but I was kinda disappointed as I was hoping for 500+...
We wrapped things up in Princeville at about 1 pm and then headed over to some specialty ponds over near Hanna City to check on some fish... These young smallmouths are looking very healthy:
These perch are only 2.5 yrs old as well and well on their way to mega trophies:
So anyhow it freezing rained on us for the last few hrs of the day, but it was good to be outside fishin! We caught great fish, but we had to work for them, they actually werent biting as good as I had hoped.... Lets hope they bite good next week!! Next week Saturday the 28th, we are fishing trophy bluegills and big catfish with some bonus walleye and maybe even a muskie at my lake in Canton. Anyone interested in more info just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a handful of Vexilars still not spoken for... this is what we are after:
