After we landed my 17.5 inch fish, we moved on to the next dock. Buzz pitched his lizard at the dock and immediately hooked into a great fish. His lizard was junebug with a chartreusse tail, rigged Texas style. After a nice fight, we measured him at 20" and 4.5 lbs. It was a fat fish, and we are reluctant to accept that our scale only put him at 4.5lbs. This fish was one of our best of the year, so not a bad way to finish up the season. Buzz ended up catching a few more chunky bass, using the same bait and catching fish holding to sporatic clumps of vegetation left over from a pad and reed bed. Overall, it was a great 2 hrs of fishing, with 5 fish caught, and our largest being a solid 20 inches. Hopefully, we can get out a few more times before the boat is put away. As they say, the fall is a great time to catch some of the biggest fish of the year, even though numbers tend to be fewer.
Thanks for reading!
