We received about 15 inches of rain from Harvey. All the creeks are a mess, Somerville is 16 ft above normal and Buescher is closed temporarily. So I decided to hit the ponds to catch some bass and crappie. I spent a couple days catching a bunch of small bass and some big crappie. A couple of the crappie going in the 14 inch range.
I went back this evening and fished for about an hour throwing a popper dropper on my 8 weight but all I caught were a few bluegill, a small bass and a crappie. So I switched over to the 4 weight to catch crappie and caught this 6 lb. 9 ounce / 22.5 inch largemouth.
Nice fish Jamie and super nice bass. Congratulations on the new PB!
Side Note: Bet that fight was SUPER!
Yes sir, not a bad fight. I was using a lightweight rod with 5 lb. line so I had to be careful. She made a couple runs and dragged my kayak about 15 yards. Then she buried herself in the vegetation. I got her out of the vegetation and she made a 3rd very short run and completely gave up.
Hey what are you doing catching a fish that size Jamie jk!!! Another awesome fish glad you caught it on the four wt. I hope there was no damage but you should have more great spillway action coming up, and congratulations on the pb!!!
