2/10 - First bass of the new year

Well today was finally the day. After a January of losing lures (you name it, I lost it. Even lost a custom HBC Huddleston (yeah that hurt the most)), I finally caught a bass for 2012. Just felt like today was the day, everything clicked.

So after about 45 minutes of nothing on my custom painted crankbait, I made a cast to close to a bush and bye bye crank. I told myself to keep cool and stay focused. So I tied on a spinnerbait that I customized (it passes the time to tweak things) and on my third cast, I get a vicious bite. Literally crushed the bait I was burning right below the surface and came clear out of the water.

Put up a great fight, totally worth falling in to land it! [green] Busted out my new portable phone tripod (still getting used to it, hence the "smile") and then released her. Weighed in at 2lbs.

PS - fishing some local Perc ponds, leave it up to y'all to guess where [8:)
