    Here's the best of the afternoon today/Sunday. This has been my first decent bass caught in a while. I've been in a slump. This one hit my brownish colored Chatterbait on a flat with milfoil in about 3-FOW. I had a white one tied on pre-trip. But the clouds came out and the water was dirty. So I tied the brown one on and caught this biggun within a few minutes.

    My oldest son caught quite-a-few on his Strike King Red Eyed Shad ripping it through the milfoil. His best was a 2lb.6oz. bass. And the rest looked to be around a pound-and-a-half.

    Nice bass,glad to hear you broke your "slump". Those Red Eye shads do seem to work. Where my brother and I fished today that's the only thing we caught 'em on. He boated I believe 5 and I was only able to bring in two nice 16.5''ers. I didn't get anything on chatterbait which surprised me. Like you I tried a white one but was a dumbbutt and left my darker colore ones at home:(. Oh well that's how it is sometimes. Again nice pic,nice bass and I'm sure you'll find some more big uns here soon.

    Going for the 'clean cut' look huh Jeff? HA HA... that is an absolute beast- I never fished a chatterbait until this year, and I did not know what I was missing; I am stocked up on them now, however.

    Looking forward to fishing with you at Burr Oak next spring.

    She weighed almost 6-pounds! And then I put her on the scale and she only weighed 4lb. 14oz. I thought I had an "Over Fiver" but I didn't. But I'm not complaining.
