As you may have guessed, i have been travelling!
We went to vistit some friend in indiana and in there back yard was a lake! i wasted no time and soon was heading out with my tackle some hand line and lures. the fishing was fairly good and i soon caught a largemouth bass, and another one, and another one.
Finally i had caught four bass and was going strong.
I was using a cheap worm that i had bought at meijers.
Som other kids came to fish also and having finished their can of worms I lent them a lure.
With my hand line i casted as far as i could and went to help him with the lure. when i got back i pulled on my hand line, It didnt budge i puled again until it came free, trailing weeds.
I pulled them i and when they were about five feet from shore i saw what had got them stuck, A big bass!!! He probably had realized he was hooked and dived fo0r the weeds.
I measured it and it came to 16 1/2 inches my biggest bass yet!
I regret not being able to fight it as it was completely spent by the time i discovered it.
I let it go and hopefully it will live to be caught by other anglers.
