    I'm in, and live only an hour and a half away, and am damn interesting company. Ox will be lucky to host me.

    If you fellas are serious, we can make it happen. Here is the spot where I caught 44 in two hours.

    I mostly release everything I catch but sometimes small and medium sized Black Drum find their way into my cooler.....I kept 2 from our trip on Tuesday and this is what they looked like before I ate them last night....Beer battered Black Drum is pretty darned good my friends.

    Good fishing this morning at the spot. Caught 38. Overall, quantity was better than quality, as at least 30 of them were under a pound. Still fun as hell though.

    On fish #18, on what was my biggest fish of the day to that point (about 2.5 pounds), my reel snapped right off the rod in the middle of the fight. I had to pull the fish in by hand. Good thing I had a second rod with me or I would have been done right there.

    This was the biggest one:

    Was the reel damaged? Never seen one break like that.

    I'm sure it had some sort of stress fracture from being tossed around in the Vette.

    Is that a Shimano Sienna reel? Dang, I'm using 3 of those. Hope mine don't snap off like that. I have two of the 1000s on two ultra-light rods, and a 2500 on my medium rod. Love the reels!

    Yes. Well, it WAS one, anyway. It had caught hundreds of bass, but that still shouldn't have happened.

    I ignored it. I'm only interested in fishing with people I like. No offense.

    None taken. I get a lot of that.

    Hope you catch an alligator and it slowly chews both your feet off.

    Went fishing this past Sunday at the spot. Caught 26. Most of them were of the smaller variety, but 3 or 4 were two to three pounds. I had a 3 pounder that jumped, shook his head, and threw the bait. Annoying.

    However, the lowlight of the morning was what I lost. I threw my fluke out, and I see a very large wave moving towards it. This bass grabbed it and it's back came out of the water. It was at least a 5 and may have weighed as much as 8. I set the hook, and it started taking out drag, which is when you know you've got a big one.

    Then the bait popped out of it's mouth.

    I shouted a bunch of words to the deserted lake that would have made a sailor blush. I was very happy my mother wasn't around.

    Will try and land him again this Sunday.

    Throw a 12-14' live, wild river shiner in there. You'll see how big they are in that lake within about 60 seconds

    Using live bait is an experiment I should try out there one of these days.

    It's legal here in NC to use bluegill as bait if you catch them on a hook. I do it all the time. Works fantastic. Laws are different state to state tho so better check yours before you try it. :lol:

    Yeah, yeah, yeah.

    Blah, blah, blah.

    So when are we going fishing, Ox?
