On my way back out of the cove I was throwing a spinnerbait between some docks and something just slammed it and bent my rod over pretty good, I thought I had a big fish on there. It was a 2.5 lb spotted bass, boy those fish can fight! It was my only fish of the day.

After 2:30 the wind picked up and the water started to get pretty rough so I called it a day. Even though I only caught one I was pleased with the way the day went.

I hope to get back out there again, maybe some of you striper guys can help me out, I would love an education on how, where and what you are using on Lake Hickory to catch those nice stripers you've been posting.

    That is a pretty looking bass. I don't think spots get much bigger than that. Nice job!
