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.
