Got my personal best

Had the day off yesterday and wanted to get some fishing in before the Avs game. Got me a nice 2.5 lber right at the get. At about 9:30 I got this guy in a section of the lake I rarely fish. He hit the spinnerbait ridiculously hard and was a real fight to land. I was so nervous that he was going to flip off the hook. I couldn't believe the size of him. 19" and around 4.5 lbs. Got my PB and the Avs won with .5 seconds left. What a day!

told you that you'd get addicted, very nice fish. now you need a float tube.

Thanks Dangly. Oh I'm hooked for sure. I was actually looking at float tubes at Bass Pro last time I was there. Not quite sure about it though. I fish a lot but I usually can't fish for hours on end. I get 1 to 2 hours windows where I can get on a lake. So a float tube might not be feasible right now.

Oh T Monk that's where you would be incorrect! Beautiful thing about a tube is you can get on the water in 10 minutes easy! And once you start catching fish from it.. welllll let's just say it can become an addiction. I don't think I have any more time this year, but if you would like, next year I would be willing to get together with you and let you float a tube. I have an extra.

That's good to know Wannabe. I would be interested to take you up on that offer. I'm new!

Thats a great fish! congrats. If your going to get a tube, I'd suggest this one. [log in for link] its easy to manovure, keeps your butt out of the water, and its pretty comfy too.
