Wild Bass hot session on the Surface


Recommended Posts

Went out this afternoon to chase some wild bass, weather was hot and stormy so I had my hopes up for a good session. got on the water and tied on a Luckycraft 50mm Diver, paddled up a little bit and first cast into a snag and im on :woohoo: :woohoo: get sight of a 30 odd cm bass and the hooks pull :angry: oh well its only early. fished with the diver for a while for nothing before switching over to a Megabass Dog X Jr for some surface action and it didnt take long for the first victom to fall to it not what I was after though

a little bream

Sun is starting to go down now and im most of the way back to the launch site not expecting much in the way of bass but maybe a Jack on the surface I persisted. but nothing till im right back 50M from the car, I cast the DogX out behind a little rock bar and get 5 hits on the retreive without hooking up :blush: they were decent size boofs too not sure what it was I fired another cast in and bang as it hits the water im on he inhales it :woohoo: a solid fight begins new it wasnt a bream straight away it was pulling too hard so my first thought was yippy a Jack then i see colour Silver :dry: dam its a nice bass as I think that the hooks pull:angry: fish was probly mid forties. oh well I fire another cast back into the same spot more in disgust than anything else but as im working it back I got absolutley nailed and Dam did this thing have some go :ohmy: after several good runs I got sight of him a Beatiful Big wild bass mm might be a PB I was thinking but first things first get the thumb in his mouth, and he isnt well hooked either. finally got him onboard

Great session Lee, I'm yet to have a good session with surface lures. With action like that around I'll have to pull my finger out:blush:

Great report as allways:woohoo:


Mate it took me a while to really get the knack of surface fishin but once u have the hang of it it can be so much fun and often very productive too
