woke up at 230 to head out to holmes county to try and thin out the doe population at a friend's property. sat til about 10 in the morning without seeing a deer. came back, at a sandwich and walked down to the lake just to kill some time til the afternoon hunt. my buddy nick hooked what seemed to be a pretty good bass, and he yelled for me to come down there. so i dropped my rod and sprinted to help (thinking i was going to hop down the steep bank to land this fish). but he was calling me to tell me to throw to the bigger fish that made his 2-3 lb'er look small. so i lipped his fish then headed back to where i was.

it was getting later and we were about to head back to the cabin to get ready for the pm hunt and i said jokingly, "im gonna go down there and catch that big ole girl you saw earlier." so i threw out one time and just as my work reached the bank and i pulled it up to throw again, i saw 'the big girl' slowly leaving the bank and headed deeper. so i put the work about 10 feet in front of where i thought she was going and dropped it. let it sit a second then worked it once and it felt like i snagged the log. so i set the hook and it was on. i knew it was a decent fish when i saw it leaving the bank, but when i saw her fat mouth when she started walking the water, i knew it was my personal best. by now, all i could to was just yell "NICK" and he casually walked down towards me then saw her come half way out of the water and was suddenly running instead. because i was fishing from high ground between 2 trees that were half in the water, i got scared. luckily i had my lacrosse hunting boots on so t didnt bother me to hop into ankle deep water. when nick reached me, he got in too as i pulled the big girl to him. he put half his hand down her throat to make sure he got a good grip and lifted what is now my personal best bass!

he claims i jumped around like a little kid, but i think it was way louder and more excited than that even! so i sat on the back of his uncles truck and headed to the camp for some pictures. she onl weighed 7.5 lbs, but to me this was a rush, my previous largest bass may have gone 2-2.5 lbs.

sorry i dont have pictures right now. i have one on my phone if someone can tell me how to get it from the phone to the computer. or i should have pictures on a cd next time i see my buddy with the camera!
