I headed out to a local catch and release bass lake, and caught five fish while the wake-boarders, and surfers gave me some rough water in the float tube. I managed to catch a couple nice ones, The first one came out of deeper water next to some milfoil, it put some serious bend in the rod, and put up a great fight. The tray has an eighteen inch ruler and this one was all of 17 and a half. The other fish was way up in the shade in under some recreational equipment, measured 18 inches, and seriously pulled me around in the tube as it was pulling out drag! I thought I had a much bigger fish on. These pictures are terrible, but it renewed some faith in the lake for me.
