Thanks guys.

I caught one toady that was 5 1/2 pounds, it was a female though.
I cant remember the name of the rod or reeel, I have had them for about10 years now. Need to get a new one but, this one works.

for the line its 14-16lb

And betelspins, roster tail spinners.

I have tried a few top water baits but these pond fish dont seem to hit umm

dude 5lbs. thats awesome. thats some serious line. nice not having to worry about snapping it off.

as far as the rod and reel goes if it works its good enough. i just remember when i bought my first new setup or rod and reel i wondered how i got along before. lol

fishing is a bomb ass hobby, wish i had more time to do it

Anyone else click this expecting some lame thread about a subwoofer?

Nice catch, omen. I never have the patience for bass fishing, so props to you. Are they easy gutting/good eating? I've never done bass to plate before.

The scene:

A quiet pond, early morning, a bit of mist rising from the still water. You cast your surface plug over near a snag or submerged log, wait 'til the ripples die down, then give the lure a little twitch.

Wait again 'til the ripples subside, another twitch... alla sudden all hell breaks loose! A bass attacks from below, clearing the water with its ferocity as it gulps the lure right down its throat.

A bass gives away nothing to piranhas or Great Whites in savagery.

patience. they are bass. it usually doesn't take too much patience. largemouth are fun but my favorite fish to catch is a smallmouth. put up a much better fight.

I'd broil it with a little butter, spices, wrapped in tinfoil.

Nice catch!

The best bass I caught this year was by accident... I was jigging for crappie underneath a sunken pipe with a 32d jighead when I caught the tiniest little two inch minnow... I reeled in, hoping he would just come off, when from under the pipe the meanest bass ever swam up and swallowed him maybe 2 ft in front of my face!! I pulled back as hard as I could and nailed him in the nose. Then he took off. I was using 5 lb line and an ultralight. I barely got him in. It was awesome!!

That's a nice one! Bass usually put up a good fight but nothing compares, ounce to ounce, to a bull bluegill on ultralight!

I have yet to go fishing this year - waiting for the rivers to thaw.

Have always wanted to go bass fishing with my fly rod. Tie on a nice poppin' bug like a mouse or a frog.......
Really enjoying the stories.
I like to fish with two lures. A dry fly on top and a nymph as a "dropper" or trailing fly.
The most fun I've ever had was catching two Brook Trout - one on each fly - simultaneously
I was trying to reel them in and they kept leap-frogging one another - jumping out of the water - right toward me!!
Needless to say, it was very hard to get the line tight and keep them on. Netting and releasing them was a challenge too!
