Let's hear about some of your "firsts" for 2017. Any first double digit bass, strange or funny catches, tournament wins, for example?
One of mine is my first Texas smallie. (Texoma) I caught a few many years ago, on Rainy Lake, Ontario, but this was my first one in Texas.
And a decent one, at that. Just shy of 3.5 on the boga's. I know... boring year for me. grin

First time to get on a school and hammer 2-5lbers for about 10-15 minutes nonstop. Was awesome, can't wait for the next jaw dropper.. 20+ pound bag of keepers would do it!

Fished Falcon for the first time, and it exceeded my dreams and expectations.
It's a magical place, and can't wait to go again.

I hope to make that a first for me in 2018!

Caught my first bass off of a Kayak, looking for many more.

Not sure about firsts but this was probably my best year for big fish. Caught a bunch in the 5-8 pound range this year. Just a few:

Caught my new PB on a weightless fluke 7.89lbs. It was the first fluke fish I've caught over 5 lbs.
Bought a kayak and caught my first bass from it this summer
Finally learned the wacky rig and caught my first fish and several more on it this year

First year that I catalogued every bass, and photo'd at least one bass on every trip I took....I don't wanna jinx it, but I've kept the skunk outta the boat all year.
