BiggestJack, I,ve got old pictures of me holding some of my grandfathers Bass that he caught back in the day. Some of the pics were dated 1962 so I was 6 yrs old. In the box there is a bunch of pics of him and his friends with bass, most of the fish were much bigger than I was. From what I remember being told he fished in the back bay of Ocean City. For myself, I did not get my first until 1987. I got it fishing from one of the jettys in OC. using a plug.
