What you been catching?

Postby gahunter » Wed Jun 15, 2005 6:46 pm

Here is the 8 pounder that I've got hangin on the wall right now. I caught her last April on a buzzbait. She was all out of eggs, so she would have been a little heavier. She was a bucketmouth, though, and my biggest bass to date.

She looks good, thanks for sharing it.

Bass/Brim mainly have not gone as much as I like but hope to get some more to have some more fish fries soon.

Combo between a white Bass and a striper. I believe. I caught a lot of them as a kid in a lake in Oklahoma. strong fighting things. You can have a lot of fun catching 2 pounders all day long.

That Lake was probably Grand Lake. Full of them. They do fight very hard. We use ultra-lite gear when fishing for the crappie, small mouth etc.. The white bass and whipers feed on the same type of baits and you never know what you'll get. 2 weeks ago I broke my ultr-lite trout rod on a 2 pound whiper. He fought like a 10 pound black bass. They're a blast to catch.

Stouff sometimes I think you need to live somewhere that the constant sunlight doesn't continue to effect you.

Damn, here we go again. That was very funny. The worst thing about those kind of "stripers" is that theres no place to put the dollar bill.

You know that would be one ugly mermaid.

Those there "whipers" as you call'em ain't nothing but good old hybrids. Around here a mix between white and striped bass are called hybrids. YOu are right, those are some hard fighting sumbitches. :salude:

Y'all need to come down to Oregon and fish with the real boys. Also you can go up to Alaska too. You think that an 8lb bass is fun? Try the fight with a 35lb river chinook. It will kick your butt.

I dont mind bass fishing and all but, when you can go to lets say the Rogue River down here, one of the cleanest rivers in the world.....dang it beats bass in my mind.

Way to go snafu, pound for pound I’ll take perch any day. :thumbsup:

I just picked up a new Daiwa trolling rod and reel today. You can never have to many trolling rods. The waters worm and the big boys have gone deep.We caught a nice 9lb Northern in about 40ft. We are hoping to get on track with them and pouned on them.
