My buddy Clay invited me to one of his favorite bass spots, a private farm pond near his house. I went armed with my normal arsenal for largemouth bass, a yellow and black spotted jitterbug for topwater and a Rapala minnow. I also threw in a spinner for good measure.
Since the pond had a lot of grass I opted to start with the jitterbug. I didn't have any strikes but I did have one nice follow up to the bank by decent sized largemouth.
Clay had walked around the pond to the other side of the pond and had hooked up with a nice little bass. I walked around to fish near him since he had forgotten his phone and wanted to be close in case he hooked up with something nice.
I started pulling jitterbug along the bank and it immediately started getting snaps from fish. After two snaps I figured it was just a blue gill but on the third hit it went down hard and I landed a nice plump 14 inch bass.
All in all we managed around 6 bass each ranging from 4 to 16 inches. A great eventing of catch and release fishing!
