Popped out for a Bass today. Not much to report really, I did hook a fish which put up a good scrap. Knew it was a decent fish by the heavy thumping rather than the scrappy fight of a schoolie. Had the fish at my feet only for it to come off whilst Gaz was getting the net (I should have set it up earlier)

I was pretty pissed off to say least! Its been a while since I caught a Bass. I'm useless at guesstimating the size of fish but Gaz reckoned it was around the 5lb mark.

Had a quick look at the jig head after I had lost the fish and noticed that the hook is a bit on the small side, the fish took the SP when I had a slack line so I assume it was lightly hooked inside its mouth.

C'est la vie! I'll have to wait for next weekend to get back down there now.

unlucky there mate, just the way it happens sometimes

Yeah unlucky Liam, but at least you had that hit of adrenalin that keeps us on our toes.. :clap: :horsesword:
Well done Liam, Fish on and then Off is better than no fish at all :jump:
Still a good sign Liam. It only takes one good hit to transform a days fishing.
Unlucky Liam, (I would blame Gaz) I know what you maen about the dry spell I am having one of them too.
