Well, took my son on his first "targeted" bass fishing trip today. It was pretty tough. We managed 9 bass, he caught the biggest. Was a chunky 3 pounder. We also had some fun hitting the bedding gills. Kept 8 real good fish, released the rest. They were hitting REAL hard. Hopefully, the weather patterns will stabilize some, and the bass will turn on again. It was great to get out and get my son on the right foot. Now, if he'd only stop catching the big fish all the time. Heck, I'm starting to sound like Catking!!!
