You are looking kind of puny right now. You sure you feel okay? :mrgreen:
At least the office is closed Friday... three guesses where I'll be.
Ditto! I'll be investigating new waters with my daughter all day Friday. Might even stay the night...that's undecided right now. Guess we'll see what the weather brings.
Peace,

Got this one back in February. 3.5lbs, caught on a Watermelon Red Buckeye Mop Jig 3/8oz. This was my first jig fish this year, the others werent picture worthy.

Awww man! I caught a 3-pounder two weeks ago on a 1/2 oz jig. It was my first time to try one. Didn't even think to take a picture. Bounced it off a tree and wham! Nothing subtle about it. I think I'm hooked!

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.
All the romance of fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.

Does more than one fish/picture add to your number of entries into the lottery or is it one entry per person just curious?

Every Picture submitted equals one entry into the lottery. All entries will be added to the Hat program and a random winner picked. The more pictures obviously means more entries.

Catch lots :)

same here man, same here. I catch them on the jig, but I have no confidence in it. I still have not gotten the "feel" and "Tick" on the line people keep talking about.
Hook sets are free...set the hook on everything until you get the feel for it. Nothing like setting the hook on a weed and having a 1/2oz jig fly by your head. :LOL2:

My biggest bass was caught on a spinnerbait, all of my other 5+ pound bass have been on a jig.

Hahaha..Yeah, I bruised my chest the other day un-setting the hook from a tree. Seriously though, a guy got killed in NY in '08 when he took a 3oz egg sinker in the head. That's the first thing I thought of after my jig attack. Fishing is dangerous!

My girlfriend's dad does that constantly. He snapped his sunglasses last year (right at the bridge of his nose), and he already slided and bruised his chin this year fishing in FL. I'll stick to crankbaits and sweep-setting the hook 8)
