    Default More from the good ole neighborhood pond

    Slid out yesterday after work to my local small pond. I figured the inbound weather may have the bass turned on and BOY WAS I RIGHT.

    Hit the water about 5p and hooked up with two or three little guys off the first three casts, all of them were between 12-14” but gave a good pull all the same. What struck me was how aggressive they were. My wacky worm wouldn’t even make bottom before the bass were hightailing it like they had stolen something.

    Around 6:30ish I was working down a bank with a few little breaks off the dirt making little indentions and my biggest bass of the year decided it had to kill my bait. The second I hooked up it was all I could do to get my drag set right and start playing him back to the boat.

    Not sure on the weight but the length came out to 22in According to my paddle lol. I think a hog trough is in my future haha.

    I hope all you guys are staying safe and sane amidst this lockdown craziness..

    Nice fish!

    I’d recommend that you get a Yak Gear Fish Stik instead of the Hog Trough. The Fish Stik costs a little more, but it is sturdier and folds-up, so it’s easier to store in a kayak.
