Bass while trolling for crappie

Post by Cut N Run » March 24th, 2018, 5:21 pm

I caught this citation-sized bass while trolling crankbaits for crappie from my kayak. I went across a hump beside the channel and she absolutely hammered my #5 Shad Rap. She pulled at least 25 feet of drag and jumped twice before I got the net under her. Released to fight & spawn again. Didn't weigh her, but I'd guess a bit over 8 pounds. I hope we meet again when she's bigger.

That is a pig, right there. Nicely done. Kudos for releasing her!
