Hit some new water the other day. Threw a 1/4oz redeye for 15 minutes with no bites. Switched to a 5" senko and got bit. I set the hook and it felt like a snag, then came some BIG head shakes. Then came a big drag pull. I always fish with a tight drag, usually takes a 3lb bass just to even make noise. When he ran I thought I hooked a carp. I gained some line, and another big run. Must be a carp... And then she jumped. She was hooked perfectly in the corner of her mouth. Weighed out at 6.5lbs 21-22". Could put my whole fist in her mouth. The pictures don't do this fish justice, was trying to get the whole fish in the picture so I had her right against my chest. Goes to show how much of a different a fish can look size wise depending on how you hold them. Fished down in Miami the next day for peacocks. Caught one small P and a couple hours later I got SMOKED. This fish was pissed off and trying to dig the entire fight. Heavy line and leader is crucial with peacock bass. Once again I had a peacock bass straighten the back trebles on a brand new SK redeye crank. Picture time!
