Got up this morning and hit the local pond and pulled out the biggest bass of my life. It was about 22 1/2" in length, and who knows how heavy (no scale), but he was heavy. Caught him on 8lb test line with a 4 inch yum dinger. Monster bass!! Of course no one was around to see my feat, nor did I have a camera. I did not think fish that size lurked in there. But I will always have the memory of that fish jumping three times (nail biting for me!), pull drag (light line), and finally me laying on my belly reaching as far as I could to lip him. He was released to grow and to be caught another day.
