As I got close to the weedline, I see bass busting on top. Pulled out my favorite lure - a chug bug (babybass) and hooked up on the first cast. The bass were crushing it, I mean with hate and discontent! I ended up with 9 bass total fishing for 4 hours, the bite got a little tough around 0930 because the wind picked up. Caught 5 by chug bug, 3 by TR weedless green pumpkin Zoom 6" lizard and 1 by storm swimbait 3" in pearl. Not huge fish but ranged from 1 to 3 lbs.

One last note, I lost a big fish in the weeds. I saw a boil against the weedline and cast my lizard at it, I gave it 2 jigs and tap something hit it. I set the hook and the fish took off to the left and I could barely turn his head, I could feel his head shake but I couldn't turn him. He ran right into the weeds and my hook came out. I learned my lesson from last time out, I spooled up some 20# power pro and got good hook sets but never broke the line. Oh well I'll catch him next time out.
