3 fish caught | Lunker: 4lb Largemouth Bass using a Strike King Weedless Jigs

I had a good trip. I only caught three bass but my co angler caught atleast 10 I was fishing larger lures looking for that elussive 10lb bass. Most of what he caught were around 1-2lb. We just followed the edge of thick Hydrilla and fished every pocket we could find. He caught his on a Texas Rigged Finesse Worm.

1 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Largemouth Bass using a Strike King Crankbait

Good trip for the most part. Started with topwaters early then moved out to deep brushpiles when sun got up. Deep diving crank bait was the ticket. tX rigged plastics did good but not as good as the cranks.
