First off...I'd like to say Hi to all my Bassbarn buddies ! I've been busy But, I finally made it out to try my fishing skills. A few times out this year and I do mean just a few I hit my luck on the incoming last night. Soaking a few Clams on 2 rods and bombing away the bell on 1 rod started to go crazy...Set the hook and crossed the eyes. The runoff sent me into adrenaline overdrive. After a few I got her in a nice 39+". It was solid and stocky. Rain started to get a little stonger and packed it in till next time. Hoping to be out and about Sat. night. If any barners are outgive me a shout. Would like to talk and see some old fishing buddies. Later Jav.
