But crankbaits were not what was on the menu for Wednesday. Neither of us got even a bite for about two hours.
When I'm just fishing for fun I get pretty bored if I'm not catching, so I switched tactics and went after some crappie for Kayak Wars, hoping at least they would be biting.
My largest Crappie to date 13.75".
Finally I got a few crappie so Dad came over and was able to catch a few himself. While crappie fishing I got a big slow hit that bent my Ultralite Overboard Rod in half. The fish stayed deep and went on a bunch of drag screaming runs. I fought the fish really slowly, knowing I had light line and didn't want any knots to break from over working the fish or trying to bring it up too fast.
I knew it was BIG Bass by the way it was fighting and eventually I got it high enough in the water column that I could see it was definitely a healthy fish.
BOOM!! Another MD Citation 22" Largemouth Bass.
