I’ve just been staring lovingly at these pictures for too long not to post them. I found myself a nice fat Smallmouth Bass over at Deep Creek Dam a little while back (luckily WordPress lets me backdate posts!)
Here she is along with a few others I caught that day.
What a fun fight. I did my best to measure 18″ while balancing on the rocks and trying to size up this chunker.
Most of the fish I catch in the local streams don’t give my drag much of a workout. While the fight didn’t last too long this fish did manage to make a few solid runs before coming to hand.
It was good to see the little guys were biting.
This Smallmouth Bass was a decent size for the creek.
Boxer briefs and an air pump? Looks like a Troutrageous! party…
And just so you don’t go thinking I had a one species day, here’s a Largemouth Bass I was able to catch right before heading out.
With the sun setting and the mosquitoes bleeding me dry, I decided to call it quits. I can’t wait to take another shot at this spot. Last time I was here I saw some fish that were easily larger than the one I caught.
Been fishing lately? Did you lose an air pump? Let us know in the comments below!
