Well the combination sure paid off! About a hour or so in I pull up my first bass of the year and she was a pig! Went 5.11 on the scales at just under 21''! Talk about a butterball! She had clearly been through the line at the shad buffet a few times. Caught in 32 FOW. She also had a pretty cool white marking on her head.

Once we had figured out how work the bait and what we were looking for we had a pretty fun day. Another nice one came unbuttoned about half way up and I caught one more about 2.5-3lbs. I caught a couple white perch to go along with it. Bassaholic caught another nice pig at 4.6 lbs and after that proceed to get quite the freshwater slam. He ended up with a couple white perch, a few crappie, a catfish, a bream (in 30 FOW!), and a shellcracker.

It ended up being warmer than expected and never rained on us like it called for. We both got a good fish to start the year, so all in all a pretty good day. All fish caught in 30-35 FOW
