    Don't know about the rest of you guys - but I don't see this too often.

    I guess he liked my bass feast scent I had just slobbed all over that grub.

    It weighed in at about 1.5 lbs. Caught a 2 lb largemouth in the same spot a few minutes later. Then I went home and had breakfast :^D (eggs and bacon).

    Howdy Brian,
    Are you the 0157D Encephelopathy variant? Not here in the US yet, I hope. I couldn't resist.

    Nice fish, congrats! Maybe I'll have to consider a change in tactics.

    Nice surprise. I have caught a few Channels on Rapalas. The eat Shad all day long so if your lure matches the food base you will land them every now and then.

    Nice C - Cat. there is nothing more fun than catching something different than what you are after. I have caught big frogs on my lures.
