After that little guy, hooked another one about 2 lbs on the next throw. Being clear water they all have some very beautiful marking on them opposed to the pale fish you see from stained, murky waters. I was getting ready to leave and I happen to see a pretty fish slink out from under an over hanging bush and go back inside it again. I knew this fish had to be bedding. I flipped my lure right outside the opening to where he just disappeared and watched as it sank. I could see the fish clear as day at this point just giving it the stare down. nothing.... I plucked the line like a guitar a couple times to keep the worm in place but make him wiggle a bit. It worked, this big guy sucked it in and headed for the bushes. I waas able to turn him around and get him landed. for reference I found a beer can to lay next to him..... so no in case you are wondering..... not my Natty!

Easter Sunday Bucket Mouths
Got up early Sunday and spent the morning with family celebrating Easter. After cooking a huge breakfast at the parent's house we came back hoe so Jackson could get a nap in.as soon as he was down, my other half decided she would try and sneak a nap in too so I took the opportunity to slip down the street to a local pond and try for a few quick largemouths. I have been pouring some soft plastic baits and i wanted to make sure they actually caught fish before I started selling them so I grabbed three worms and headed out the door. The pond I was at was an old sand pit so the water was crystal clear. As soon as I walked up I spotted 3 fish mulling around 2 on beds. I quickly rigged up a High- Sea Blue colored wrinkle worm, pitched it just a little past one of the fish. It didn't even touch the bottom before a little one pounder came buzzing along and inhaled it. FISH ON!
