Stop Being Such a Basshole...

I managed to eek out a couple of hours on the water yesterday. Freshwater , which isn't my favorite , but I did catch a few fish. Unfortunately , I'm just not getting to the beach as I much as I'd like , so I take what I can get. I'm not a Bass fisherman either , really , so these little guys are fun to me. I just like to feel a tug at the end of the line , and yesterday was a rare "catching" day instead of just a fishing day. Enjoy the pictures , I may try to upload a video of my trustworthy Beagle rabbit hunting for me yesterday. I get almost as much enjoyment out of hearing her bray on a scent as I do out of fishing lately , so yesterday was fun.



So we meet again , Mr. Gill




Fun Size!

One of my secret spots...

Peaceful , until a bass starts thrashing!

You'll notice the last bass kind of resembles a snook. I have no idea why ,but I caught two others that were marked the same way. Other little bass from the same spot had the beginnings of a dark green lateral line , like bass everywhere , but these three had a weird snook like appearance. Who knows? Not me...

You'll also notice the bass laying on the ground. I try not to do that , as it is hard on the fish and probably hurts their slime coat , but he finned me and flopped out of my hand. I told him to lay there and think about what he just did. A fitting time out for an unruly fish while I snapped a picture. Made for a nice change of pace from my usual floating hand pictures , which I'm not a fan of , but am forced to do when fishing alone.

Happy Hump Day!
