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.

Using a small 4in storm kickin tail Color - gizzard shad Kick tails work very well for me in spring and late fall
Yes I was the teen that you remember from the bait shop picture gallary.
Awesome, congrats on a great fight!! Nothing better then the first cast and having your lure slammed!!

You can take what you want from life......As long as you give a little Back. "We never get over the fishing fever, it's a delightful disease and thank the lord there is no cure". "CTF, is a lure I can not afford to NOT have in my pocket"
Donít argue with Idiots.. They will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Our freedoms are being choked, big brother's grip is getting tighter.
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!!
