Shooting fish in a barrel. We fished for 45 minutes today, having no crawlers. Senkos on big 3/0 worm hooks.

Here are pictures of the smallest and largest of the afternoon. Buck got his new PB LMB, right at 18 inches and girthy.







We caught 8 total in 45 minutes (heat of the day)-- all varying in size between these two. Fun times. =)

Buck's bass went aerial on him twice. That was a show.

Not really, but Buck loved it. We were hoping to get some catfish to strike those Senkos.

The only one that really battled was the big one. The 9-16 inchers rolled over and logged up to shore--- we were using 6 lb mono.

Buck had a blast on the big one though. I'd rather catch cats, but it was a fun time, for sure.

I gotta say, those Senkos are about worthless after 2-3 fish... The first one lasted 3 fish, the second 2 fish, and the last one 3. Of course, after the big one, that last one was tattered to ****... Managed one more small one after that on that ripped up piece of plastic, but DAMN.

They're more expensive to use than buying crawlers every trip!

Yep... I caught 6 to his 2, but he had the upper hand on size.

And 18" is a conservative estimate. Because it was such a rushed and unplanned outing, I did not have my tape with me.

I look at this pic compared with the nice catfish he caught (which WAS measured) and I'm starting to think... This bass might have been close to, if not beyond, a 20 incher?
