Almost skunked

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Shortdrift, Jul 25, 2004.

  1. I knew better to hit the front lake with the cold front plus a cold drizzle but I needed a fishing fix. :D To top it off I went with a spinner bait instead of a ripple tail worm. Why? Because I was too darn lazy to change the lure. :eek:
    Well there was one bass about fifteen inches that followed and then very gently latched onto the very tips of the skirt. Dumb bass does'nt know what a thrill he missed.
    As I approached the end of the shoreline I was fishing, a much smarter but smaller (11"0 bass engulfed the whole thing and had the joy of seeing what the world looked like above the water. :rolleyes: I gently removed the hook and held him/her for a minute while I explained what had just happened and how much catching him/her meant to me. I then returned the bass to the lake a promptly left as I didn't want to spoil a good thing by making another hundred casts without finding another "smart" bass. :)
  2. GEZZZZZ....

    Someone needs to catch the smart ones and leave them dummies for me!!!

    Shortdrift, I'm glad to hear you didn't end up skunked. Unfortunately it seems like about all I come across are the dumb ones. I hope your smart one took to the "schooling" you gave him, next time when he's bigger and you catch him, maybe he'll have a tale or two to tell you.;)
