Post by BLK fisher »

Went out last weekend with my buddy for a couple of hours to enjoy the weather and glad I did. We started of right away throwing traps and he instantly gets a keeper. He tells me their on the bottom in the grass. Next cast I cast out and let it sink to the bottom and rip it out of the grass. I let it sink again and take two turns of the reel and the rod loads up. After a decent fight I get her to the boat and my buddy lands her for me. She went 9 lbs. 3ozs. I know alot of you southern guys catch them all the time but in jersey they are RARE. The NJ state record is 10lb 14 oz so I am pleased with that. My new goal now is to catch the new state record. I have a feeling she's in there somewhere and I hope I find her.

beautiful fish man. That is what bass fishing is about, catching a fish that makes your heart flutter and makes your palm sweat wondering if you are going to get her in the boat.. Congrats man!

Great catch =D>
Either cuff em & stuff em - or - catch em and cook em! In my world, "catch & release" is an escape!

Catch her again in a year or two and you will have your record. Good luck
