New guy here, love the fishing forum.. so much information, stories and photos.
My wife, Tracy and I moved from PA to TX about 2 years ago, we love it here!
I recently purchased a 10-foot pontoon bass boat and we took it out for the first time yesterday.
Well, the Wifey also caught her first monster bass! It was such an exciting, and unforgettable moment for us!
I setup Tracy with a spinning rod and Chatterbait, and before long she was fishing and placing the bait like a pro, impressive.
Funny, I kept telling her this is a big bass bait.
Soon after, she said "I think I have something?", then when I saw how much the rod bent and we watched that bass jump out of the water, the battle was on!
Simply amazing to watch! She was yelling and laughing, so excited! What a great experience for her! Something I will never forget, still cant believe it!:)
Once we got it inside the boat, I said to her you need to hold this bass! (first time holding a fish too!)
We took a few photos, and she gently placed the bass in the water and watched this giant slowly swim away..
Tracy then says "Wow that was an Adrenaline Rush!!! I knew how to release the bass from watching your fishing shows".
Told her that is what bass fishing is all about, and she caught a fish of a lifetime...So proud!
I did not have a scale at the time, definitely, getting one now. The bass was about 27-inches in length, maybe longer and estimated to weigh between 7 and 9 lbs., but in all the excitement, not sure!?
How much do you think the bass weighs based on the photo? Thanks everyone!
