Well I decided to go fishing after work today.....they are calling for rain the rest of the week.

Well To say I had a good night is an under statement. I got to the water at about 6:00 and it stopped fishing at 7:30:wink:

Well let's just say that I had a run in about 15-20 mins and I caught 7 largemouth all over 4 lbs with the biggest going 7 lbs:eek:

They were just hammering a slow rolled a white Colorodo bladed spinnerbait.....but they were REALLY HAMMERING a Zoom Lizard.:wink:

Good thing someone came up with the idea of putting a camera in my phone because I was by myself.....unfortunatley a bunch of the pics didn't come out so I couldn't upload them all.:cry: But the Potomac is heating up:wink:

Well done! Well done, indeed!

Yeah, the lizards this time of year are deadly. Salamanders are notorious nest raiders, seeking freshly laid eggs to dine on. When the bass hit their pre-spawn and into the spawn, nest guarding becomes a priority, and they will hammer anything that gets near their nests. Not necessarily to eat it, simply to remove it from the nest area.

I've seen some video of how a pre to full spawn bass will grab a lizard, carry it a ways from the nest and then spit it out.

Lizards in the spring are deadly!

Great job....

You are correct I used to use Zoom lizards all the time years ago during this time of the year. I went away from them and then this weekend I found 2 bags of them that have to be about 6 years old atleast. Well the fish didn't know they weren't new.:wink:

But the funny thing is I caught 4 of the bigger fish from the same piece of cover on 5 cast. They were stacked up on it like it was post spawn.

All I know is I am glad that I changed the line on that rod yesterday...... because I had 8 lb line on my spinning rod I caught most of them on. :eek: Including the 7 lber. But that's why it pays to have good equipment.:wink:

Yeah and maybe someday it might actually be safe to handle or eat something you take out of the Potomac River. :D
Nice fish.

If it was a target you could call photo shop:wink: But your boy can fish.

Actually the hour and a half sucked....the wind was blowing like crap (when the wind got behind me if I caught it right I could almost spool my baitcast reel with a 3/8 oz spinner bait:eek:)....it was just last half hour that was great.

But now you know why I can't shoot anymore. I was going fishing last year everyday and not shooting. I was on the water 6 days a week almost last year....even when I did shoot or play golf I went fishing in the afternoon.:wink:

No doubt in my mind about that buddy!

Maybe a S-4 with a zebco 808 on the stab would be the best of both worlds:rolleyes:
