well i hit my mark at about 7am as soon as i saw the water it looked perfect and no weed hopes were high with a big tide etc.so on with the patchinko and after a few casts bang fish on it frightened the s**t out of me it was about 6-8 feet from me i was not expecting it.so landed it quick pic and back it went it was about 3lb.so i stuck with the patchinko and after about 15 min i was watching it as it was coming in and a big splash behind the lure i saw something big and dark to be honest i thought it was a few fish chasing the lure.i stopped and bang i got a big hit and i knew it was a big fish.so as i started to see the fish i knew it was a big one and what a fish it was.i was praying that i would land it and i did i was shaking when i was unhooking it.so a few quick pics and back it went i made a video of the release on my phone but i dont know how to upload video but i will find out.after that i just could not fish anymore and packed up and went home.im buzzing now and ill remember this for a long time its a pity i was by myself as i would have liked a pic with the fish.it weighed a shade over 10lb on the boga

Congratulations mate! A lot of Bass fisherman go their whole lives without seeing a fish of that calibre, really well done. And on a surface lure!
