Covering My Own Bass

Hey Kids,

Texas Bass Fishing.

I had never done it.

It’s possible that the importance is lost on those who are not fishermen.

Completive bass fishing is huge. Big tournaments, big money, and big sponsors.

I’m not claiming expert status but I’ve seen enough shows on ESPN Saturday morning to get caught up in the fervor. I want to catch some of them southern bass too!

Warning: My fish in pictures might be bigger than it appears in real life.

But I’m from northern trout country.

So when an offer to go Bass fishing came my way, on a bass lake in Texas, on a bass boat; I had to accept.

The lake was Lake Fork, Texas. The method was a Texas Rig. And the target was Bass. Largemouth style.

The wind blew, the fishing report said “tough”, and we got a flat tire on the boat on the way there; but through it all, about an hour and a half into the fishing, I hooked and landed my first Texas Black Bass. Yay!

It turned out to be our only bass of the day.

I’m selfishly and non-repentantly ecstatic it was mine.
