Got out for a couple hours this morning and the micro bass were digging a balsa crankbait. After 6 or 7 tiny guys and one decent sized one, this 20.75 inch monster blasted the crankbait and I set a new personal record (previously 20 inches).
Later on I caught a couple on a spinnerbait including this one that was around 16 inches.
Earlier in the week I got out and caught a 16.5 inch smallie on the same balsa crankbait...I'll have to make sure I don't loose it. It's a Bagley balsa B2 I think...nice job little crankbait!
