    Just one but it was worth the cost of admission! Last week I left disappointed because a nice fish threw my Spinner Bait right in front of me and another bulldogged me and broke me off. I went home and stripped the line off of my spinnerbait reel and replaced it with 40# J-Braid! That action paid off today!

    I went back to tossing the Spinnerbait into thick stickups. (thanks VinnyBass !) Much like last week, I put my bait into a likely spot. And like last week the bait got crushed. No doubt the strongest Bass I have ever felt. It immediately lunged for the brush, stripping drag! Knowing that I had improved holding power I forcefully thumbed the spool. I did the same thing last week and was promptly snapped off. Not this time! I held on as the fish pulled two more times. I seriously thought I had another Catfish of the size I caught last year. Nope... BASS! PB? Not even close, in fact it was the third 5.83 that I have caught! It was just crazy strong! My hat is off to J-Braid and a stout trailer hook!

    Very very nice Paul!
    Glad to see you nail a fat one after losing that one last week. I wish I was fishing, but Deb and I have been up at Harrahs casino for a couple days.....anyway... it looks like you hit the jackpot(betting on braid worked!)
    A toast to your catch(me of course with a White Russian)!

    LOL! The first shot I was smiling but only half of the fish was showing. I don't have one of those fancy selfie phones.
