Default O/T: Pics of some Nice Bass I Caught

     

For you fishing enthusiasts among us . . . .

The last couple of weeks have been extremely good bass fishing. The river in the subdivision our house is located in is loaded with large catfish, brim, bullhead, and largemouth bass.

I looked into it and the river has absolutely no industrial pollution between here and the north Georgia mountain streams from which it originates. In fact, these bass filets are probably the sweetest and cleanest fish I have ever eaten (that is, that I have caught on my own).

Anyway, the largest of these bass is now wrapped in a wet towel and plastic in the freezer awaiting the day when I can afford to send him off to the taxidermist. I have never had any of my fish mounted, so this should be pretty nice. There have been a total of about a dozen bass caught the last two weeks, mostly caught on surface lures (jitterbug, buzz-bait torpedoes), but when they go to the bottom I send a friendly little minnow lure down that noses off the bottom on retrieval to say "hi" to them. They can't resist the invititation.

The best part about this whole experience is that I have been landing these large bass on my ultra-light trout rod and reel. Talk about an adrenaline rush!

Anyway, below are three pictures of some of the bass I have caught in the last two weeks:

Nice catch proffessor. I think I recognize you in the last picture from the show COPS, or maybe its just the wife-beater shirt.

Hate to burst your bubble there man but all you need to get a fish mount these days is a picture of the fish with some type of measuring item in the picture like a ruler or tape measure and they will build it from scratch. My cousins and i are pretty avid fishermen. Nice fish though enjoy the food they are great. If you ever get an itch to go rainbow trout fishing come to arkansas and ill hook u up also very tasty. Good catch man.

Nice bass...wait, that don't sound quite right. Reminds me of Napolean Dynamite
Nice fish!

We don't get bass up here, but we get whole lot of other stuff. You're welcome anytime, Professor.

No joke..there's something about COPS that keeps me coming back.

Nice Bounty! I can appreciate the serenity of a nice fishing trip. I use to fish for bass until I figured out they sell fish at the grocery store. Actually, I live 30 minutes from Sequoia National Park and the trout fishing is NICE! Catch and release. Brook Trout only about 10-12 inches long but they fight like a mutha.

I'm still wondering how Darrell diguises himself to look like the Buffster. Maybe he pays a model to pose for the pics? Or a younger sister? Sorry Big D, I just couldn't resist.......Nice fish too!

Did you have one of them on a leash?

It looks like you're ready to juggle them in the last picture, or use them as ninja weapons.

Bachelor #2, if you could have any animal as a pet, what would it be?

Nice catch. Sir Buffster.
