Fish: Largemouth Bass

Slow Day With Some Quality Chunks

Post By: bharper      Posted: 7/21/2021 2:19:57 PM     Points: 278    
I got out yesterday and fished for some Largemouth with my friend Chet. The day started off well for Chet with him landing three nice chunks ranging from 16 1/2”-18 1/2” on the General Worm in Green Pumpkin! I finally got hooked up three hours later using a Yamamoto Hula Grub on my 7’ Phenix Feather Heavy Action Baitcasting Rod (If you see these rods in store check them out) but lost both of them within 5-6 ft of the shore! I caught a small one on a 2” crankbait while Chet caught a few more on a Biffle Bug( he ended up with 6 fish). I didn’t get into my three best fish until the end of the day in one spot using a 5” Worm Green Pumpkin with Purple flake! Here’s our best fish!

I have to disagree about the slow day. Quality catches Harper!

Nice ones. Your patience and persistence is commendable. I think I would have unfriended Chet after his first two fish & made him walk home.

Thx Bron & Barnacles! 👊🍻

Barnacles- Good idea! 😜
I even gave him first shot at the honey hole spot! He preceded to catch three quality Bass. I’ll make sure I get it first next time!😜✌️🍻

Thx Kiva & SirGreg!
Thankfully the day wasn’t a complete wash! I was fortunate to get another chance after choking on the two earlier fish.🎣🍻👍
