All on video I caught the BIG bass that didn't get away. Last week I hooked a 10+ pound largemouth a half an hour after dark and it spit the hook at the boat side. I thought about it all week, even while traveling down to the keys. Once I got back to Tampa, I reached out to Tom and we made plans for redemption. The hot bait of choice has been the Strike King 5XD crankbait in the chartreuse, orange belly pattern. I upgraded the trebles to the Mustad Elite grips.
The key was to reel the bait steadily and pause when I would hit structure, this seemed to help trigger strikes. These bass where caught post front when the barometer was steadily rising. We were also a little after the major feed time. I finally caught my 10lb fish that had a 17 inch girth and was 27 inches long. I retied my lure and on my very next cast I hooked into another tank, after a few jumps I finessed the fish to the boat where Tom could net it. Even though he pulled harder and looked bigger it was a 7lb fish. I had a 17lb bag in two cast, how crazy is that? I snapped a few pictures and sent her home. This is part 1 of the big bass series, stay tuned for part two.
