Caught a monster bass Sunday!

After Irene pounded us with rain on my only weekend off work this month, I went out to my families cabin with my brother and my buddy who I roomeed with in college. The day was perfect, 85 degrees and sunny, you never would have guessed that a hurricane had just come through. I expected the fishing to be rather poor because of all the rain, but hey a bad day fishing is better than most other things!

I was throwing a watermelon 6 inch senko along the edge of a weed bed. I was standing on the dock, I hadnt even gone out to my prime spots in the canoe yet, when all of a sudden, WHAM! The line whipped taut and the fight was one. The bass jumped 4 times like a tarpon, slapping its tail as it went vertical in the air. When I saw how big it was my heart was racing, I did not want to lose it. I cranked the loosened the drag and played the fish out. Finally I brought it alongside the dock and my brother helped land it. It was huge! I have a large 8 1/2 pounder on my wall, this thing dwarfed it! Plus I landed it on a trout/panfish rod that is only 5'6"!
