I havent, been fishing much for the last month or so nor have I been online much.
With that said, about a week ago I had a little spare time on my hands so I figured I would go to Rogers Park and try out this swim bait I recently bought.
For those who know Rogers Parks ponds I was fishing the back pond.

As I walked down the short hill onto the bridge out of the corner of my eye I seen something move slowly away from the shore island.

Rather then pinning the movement on sunnys which are usually in that area I took my one and only cast.
The lure hits the water and two complete rotations of my real I get a hard it (oh boy!).
I set the hook and begin I very satisfying and entertaining fight with what i know now is a large mouth bass.
Splashing and trying to escape I get her to shore and scoop this baby up.

Woooooo Hooooo He!! Yeah
I believe the bass was close to 4lbs

I took a picture with my cell which doesnt justify the fish well but shows the length up against my blazer door.
I will try to upload the picture some time today.

I wasnt very confident I was going to catch any thing that day actually.
It was pretty cool out and the fish werent very active at all a couple of days before catching that fish.

I left right after catching that bass since it was good enough for me lol why sit out there cold and not catch any thing else



Thanks guys

Those trout tournies were priceless!!! we fished there for weeks afterward and slowly the trout stopped biting or were all caught!! It was fun when the carp sucked down your worm, we harly ever caught them as they usually broke off. Glad you mentioned that Tommy!!
