Pond Fishin’

I headed over to my usual pond on my way home from work last Tuesday.  After reeling in a few (1-2 lb range) I got THE bite.  This one was different.  Strong.  Hard.  Deliberate.  Immediately I knew this was a big fish.  After setting the hook, I took my time reeling in, making a point to not over-excite myself and reel in too quickly.  Left to right, right to left she pulled.  Drag pulling.  She stayed under the entire time, not once breaking the surface.  After about 3 minutes, she was at the bank ready to make land.  I carefully set my pole down, knelt and thumbed her bottom lip.  Not the largest LMB I’d ever seen, but a very nice sized one.  Bait used:  Texas rigged watermelon red Yum Dinger.
