PB @ P-lo this evening

Post By: nightangler      Posted: 8/18/2012 8:48:40 PM     Points: 1656    
Decided to hit the water for a few this evening after dinner. Figured I might run across some of the guys fishing the RMTS Night Tourney there tonight. I ended up landing a pretty nice fish. I didnt have a scale or tape with me but it is certainly my personal best :-)

As soon as I landed it, two guys in a boat hauled tail across the lake and started asking me some questions. Go figure, the guys in a $50k bass boat fishing a tournament that requires a boat were asking a shore fisherman what he was using and how. Made my day for sure!!!!!!!

Nice one man!

Yeah tourny fishers will do what they can to get on fish. Just cause they have an expensive boat doesn't mean they know how to fish. Lol

Your bass is a Spotted bass.

Just a piece of advice. Buy flick shake heads if you don't have them. You'll get that Senko down to some smallies too. Great job on a beautiful fish man.

According to "some" tournament rules......obtaining outside information from someone "not" in the tournament is a cause for disqualification (DQ). Just an FYI for all you tourney guys out there. Read and understand your rules before each event!

Thanks guys!!! It fought like a champ, especially on my ultra light pole. It jumped twice clear out of the water which really got my heart pumping because I could tell it was bigger than the average Plo bass.

Hope I didn't get anyone in the tourney in trouble, I was just flattered the guys with their super expensive boat and gear were asking me what I was using. I should have told them I was bait dunking nightcrawlers or something. You know, really played up the stereotypes of a shore fisherman.

Anyone have a guess know the length/weight? I didn't have a scale or a tape so I am really not sure other than its my personal best bass. I don't want to over estimate when I tell my story :-)
