That's funny! My mother in law had a Yorkshire Terrier that my wife and I always called "Bassbait"!! 8)Pondfisher said:Jeez..........that thing is bigger than my dog....hmmmmmmm wonder if a Brittany Spaniel would make a good bucket-mouth bait........Harriet.....Harriet come here!!!!!

I'm curious BM65... you mentioned junebug color. Does color play a significant part when fall fishing with plastics? Also, is the 5" size critical or can you go up or down from there?
Always cool to hear from a professional!
I have only been there once! I do not know much about it, but I am learning about it. I do not wish to post the location on a public forum at this time. When you stop and think about the fact I caught 3 bass with the smallest being 4 1/2 lbs, you have to realize that this might not have occured if everyone went to this body of water and harvested their catch. I am not going to get into an essay or debate regarding catch-and-release, but I do feel strongly about putting bass back in the water so that others may enjoy catching them as well! With that being said, I do feel that certain areas depending on the conditions must be harvested about 15% to 18% per year in order to maintain a healthy enviroment with no signs of any growth-stunt. In a case like the forementioned, I would be sure and watch what size fish you are removing...1 1/2 to 2lb bass, not a problem, 5lb to 10lb bass...HUGE PROBLEM!!! It really makes me feel good when I catch a 5 to 6lb bass and it has marks on its mouth indicating that it's been caught 2 or 3 times. THAT IS AWESOME!!! If you would like to send me a personal e-mail, I would be happy to dicuss this futher....Thanks for understanding...lillupsd said:What a nice bass and it is nice to see a lots jealous replies. After all that, can this unknown be a known? Is this place for fisherman sharing the info? One can not just catch a bass at his/her backyard in the plastic pool.
No offense, just little curious.
