Had a tough day yesterday. Took a friend to my local bass pond and he caught a nice 18 incher. I landed this fish for him and took a treble deep into my thumb Had to push it all the way through and cut the hook. For a second, I had the fish off the ground. I had the entire weight of an 18 inch bass supported by nothing more than a hook in my thumb. OUCH !!! Got a shot today and went back this evening. My buddy got a 16, 18 and a few smaller ones. I got one smaller one and a 17. Great couple days to be out. Hit O'Shay for eyes early yesterday. Water looked good, but no cooperation from the fish.
