Went fishing yesterday for bass at a private pond close to where I live. Fished from about 3:00pm to 4:30 Pm. I Had A Great Day On The Water. I caught 5 Bass Total. The First one was about 6 inches. WHAT A HAWG. The other 5 bass I caught where a little better. The Next one was about 2 pounds and caught him on a senko. The Next 2 where bout 3.5 pounds (18 inches) and nailed them with a lizard. I then decided to try a little Top water action so I pulled out my Popper. I caught my next one on this and it was a MONSTER HAWG. I was freaking out when I got him close to the boat and saw how big he was. THIS FISH WAS HUGE. I Finally got him it the boat and couldnt believe it. It measured 22.5 Inches. I got my scale out but when I turned it on I dont think It was calibrated correctly It said it weighed only 5.1 pounds. On my tape measure sticker that is on the boat it says the average weight of a fish that is 22 inches is 6.7 pounds. Now this fish didnt have the biggest of bellies but it still wasnt skinny or anything. I was still excited to have caught the fish but think the weight was off on the scale. Like I said it was 22.5 inches. I took pictures but my stupid camera (Cheep Digital) Didnt do very good. You cant really see how big the fish is. I was ticked. My wife usually goes with me but she didnt go this time so no one was there to take a picture of me holding the fish and trying to hold a bass that size out in front of you and taking a picture of it isnt easy. I will post the pictures later when I can but what do you think this fish would have weighed at 22.5 inches long. I half to say my scale was off so I am going to say it was a sold 6 pounds. I caught one more that was like about 3 pounds on another senko and then I started towards shore. I tossed the popper out one more time and it got sucked under by another fish. I didnt hook it very good because I got him close to the boat and he spit the lure. I got a good look at him and would say he was right about 4 pounds. Anyway like I said it was a great day on the water. What a trip. I got that Hawg!
