i had a little bit of spare time so i thought i would go over to a little pond i have fished since i was a little kid. i was throwing a pumpkinseed custom gary yamamoto plastic on a mushroom head jig. caught one. a largemouth, 2lbs 14 oz. it was 18 inches long. it put up a great fight. so i just thought i would share that. i hope everyone else is having some luck out there.
