Bass Fishing Fever

Hello everyone!

This is just a quick note on today's exciting adventures! What a fantastic day!

My friend Darrell with his first bass! 13 inches 2 lbs

Darrell with his second. A new PB! 15 inches 3 1/2 lbs

Another shot.

This is my first bass of the New Year! 16 inches 4 lbs

This is my new PB! A full 17 inches and a whopping 5 lbs!

These are the lures we used.
The top one is a Yo-Zuri,
and the bottom is a bream pattern Rattle Trap.

I hope that all of you have a great year, and catch lots of fish.

Tight Lines,

Fishing With My Friends

Hi there! I hope everyone had a good Christmas and a very happy New Year! For Christmas I got some neat stuff, and I’ll be sharing that with you next week. I was really surprised that it was so hot this Christmas but I hope that next year it will be a white Christmas. Now, I’ve been taking my friends fishing lately and I thought I would share some of our adventures with you.

When I take my friends fishing we usually end up talking instead of fishing. We do catch some fish here and there, but all together we catch about the same amount of fish that I do when I fish alone. My friends’ names are Tom, Joe, Darrell, Ethan, Arron, and Cristian.

Joe’s mom is really afraid of the alligators so she does not let him go fishing with us, but we do sneak him out sometimes. Most of the time he has to stay home, which really stinks. So, my mom and dad are trying to convince Joe’s mom that if you treat the alligators with the proper respect they deserve, they are not as dangerous as people say they are.

Well, I have a lot of fun when I go fishing with my friends; Darrell caught a bass, and so did I, but my other friends have not caught any fish yet, but were working on different techniques for their lures. Some of my goals for this year are that I want to catch some red fish and snook. Well that about wraps it up for this week so...

I’ll see you next time at Strikes, Bites, and Fights.
