    I was fishing under at bridge at Lake Tyler and these Bass fishers were yelling san whooping it up on the other side. They were getting louder and their voice was getting higher so I went to see what was going on. They were throwing a swim bait under the bridge and hooked this sucker, they were trying to man handle it. I told them to play it out till they could get it to the boat with out it fighting, then reach down and grab it. They both said "with our hands" I just laughed. Here is a picture of them.

    This makes one jealous. When they catch by accident, the fish we are searching for. Enjoyed the pic and story.

    That is the reason I quit fishing for bass. I have about 10 rods that are in the corner of my fishing room just wanting to go bass fishing. For the past 5 years, I have been fishing with Tiger Rods with 6500c's. Thanks for the great report.

    That's some good S**T right there. Them poor guys were lucky they weren't using ultralight gear. Good job catching them on film.
