After a long day of sweatin at work. I decided to head to my buddies pond for a little peace and downtime.
First rod I grabbed was a Fury 734C with a Lews Xfinity 7:5:1 that had a bitsy flippin jig tied on. After I few flips I just wasnt feeling a jig so I retied a EZ Lures Gizzard Shad wrapped lipless crankbait (only $8).
First cast I had something slap at it. Thinking to myself ok maybe they are wanting shad.
5-6 casts later this chinky butt latched on. At first I was thinking it was a gar by the way it was fighting. Didnt hit the bait hard and certainly wasnt pulling for dear life. The Lews struggled even with the drag set all the way.
I didnt realize the size of her until I got her to the bank. I was shocked as its been 2 years since I caught 1 over 4lbs in this pond. In a rush to find my scale in my tackle bag that was near me as I didnt wanna keep her out the water too long. I couldnt find my scale.
Got a couple pics and let back in the pond. 2 hours later I find my scale thats buried among all my soft plastics in my tackle bag.
This bass is highly likely to be my PB but without knowing the weight. I cant say that it is. Ill catch her again 1 day. But it surely did feel good to pull a good one like that again.
