Bass opening magic

#1 Post by simons rat » Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:47 pm

Me and RAD went bass fishing. We missed opening day by a few days, but we finally got an opportunity to get out.

It was a crazy crazy day. Without doubts it was the best opening fish of the season either of us has experienced.

Let's start the report with the video.



chers,

S

I have seen our friend Wayne D attempt the Solo Man Launch. He had no where the skills that Steven has. One of the funniest things I have seen,, he went under, got all his gear back, but the saddest part for Wayne he lost his three stubbies to the murky depths of the Bremer river... :lol:

looked like a good time Steve, the homebrews looked to have given you a slight shilacking my bass fishing friend , the speech got rolly on the toungue and the laughter looked genuinely enjoyable , good vibes caught on tape

So good to see the Bass are about and striking at lure and fly so early in the season. Thanks for posting, great vid!

The courage to not lie about it and the wisdom to know my
fishing mates won't believe me anyway.
