Two nice October bass in the float tube!

20 3/4 with the mouth closed.  Longest of the season for me!

19 incher

19" - big head

I got out during the rain tonight, and when it stopped, I caught a couple of tanks!  It was getting dark by the time I got back to the landing.  I'm decided to fish slow, although I didn't have any bites, and I was thinking I should have been throwing some type of frog on top.  I missed several fish, and I think I stuck them, so I never got a second chance.  I caught a pike inbetween the two bass.  The second bass was ripping out drag, and it actually spun me around in the float tube.  The head was gigantic!  I was hoping that it would go 21", but it would be short of that with the mouth closed.  It is hard to tell in the picture, but the tail actually starts to go up the side of the basket.  It was getting dark out, and it is tough to take great pics in the tube with my phone.  I wore my waders in the float tube this time, and it definitely takes a little more effort to paddle with the waders on.  With the two quality fish, it was worth the trip this time. : )
