A little Pre-Spawn Fishing

Well to start, I'm finally back training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, so my fishing time has been cut real short. It's another hobby that I love doing and I'm finally glad that I can make time to hit the gym and work out. The sun has been shining for the past three days and that can only mean good things for the lake. The water apparently warmed up enough for the fish to show signs of life. Some have already spawned and some are already in the process.

I got to the lake today to see a ball of fry and decided to see if mother bass was there. Tied on a Jackall Squad Minnow 95 to see if anything was there to see a nice solid 3 1/4 lb fish follow it many times. Tried the Jackall Giron, a small Bluegill imitation swim bait, for the same results. I went back to the jerkbait and finally she slammed the lure right in front of me. My rod, a Jackall VCM-CAST 68, was bent over as she tried vigorously to shake off the hooks only to get hooked more by the rear hooks. I let her tire herself out for a bit and was cautious in lipping the fish with a mouthfull of trebles, finally got it for my first fish of the month.

Tackle List:
Rod: Jackall Poison Heritage VCM-CAST 68 HC-68MRG
Reel: Shimano Curado 200E5
Lure: Jackall Squad Minnow 95 "Table Rock Shad" (Japan Chartreuse)

Side note: On the drive back home, I almost nailed an old lady who decided to jay-walk a busy intersection...

Then I went online and bought this: Jackall Poison Heritage Master Stroke HC-610MR, my 4th Jackall Rod...

I'll be spooling some 14 lb fluoro and using this rod as my spinnerbait rod.

Here is something you also do not see everyday...
A bass eating another bass about the same size, end result they both drown
