Basserdrew's Big Bass in 2006

Postby BasserDrew » Mon Apr 24, 2006 7:32 pm

There is probably no humble way to do this, but I figure there is no better place than the bragging board to make an '06 big fish thread. I figure this is better than always making a new topic. I would recommend others do the same if they would like. It makes sharing your bragging sized pics with folks that aren't GRFers (friends, family, co-workers etc.) a lot easier because you can simply email them one link.

Big fish are not easy to catch and I feel blessed to score some nice ones already this year. I hope everyone gets a chance to hook into some similar fatties.

January pigbeast: 5-0 shoal bass caught on pig-n-jig
Image



February super pigbeast: 5-12 shoal bass caught on spinnerbait
Image
Image
Image



March fatty: This glorious shoalie will always be one of my favorites. The belly on this fish was as big as I had ever seen. This shoalie weighed 4-15.
Image
Image



Early April pigbeast shoalie: She sucked up a spinnerbait and tipped the scales at 5-5.

Image


April shoalie hawg: Hit a pig-n-jig in a pool. She weighed 4-11.
Image
Image



April LM: This 4-11 busted a buzzbait right by a rootball
Image




April Hawg: This 5-4 LM aslo busted a buzzait 6 inches from the bank

Image

Late April shoalie: 4-6.


Image

Image

May LM: 4-3

Image

May super pigbeast: spawned out shoalie weighed 5-2.

Image

Image

Image

This is a rare fish because A.) It is a Georgia smallmouth and B.) It was caught out of a river and C.) because it weighed 3-3.

Image

super pigbeast 6-12 largemouth! Yee Haw!

Image

This Hawg of a largemouth also came on the same day as the 6-12. This one weighed 5 lbs even.

Image


This 4-3 shoalie was caught way up north and is my biggest to dat in the northern reaches of their habitat.

Image

7-8 Super Heavy Weight! Caught on October 14th

Image

Image


4-7 shoalie caught on October 15th


Image

Image

October LM - 5-5

Image

And, this 5-6 LM

Image

You suck Drew. Learn to fish, and put some time on the water, will you? :lol:

I concur with FA... this post should be titled "how many friggin adjectives can you come up with to describe a big bass." I hope you get a job real soon... one that requires 60 hour weeks and offers minimal vacation. 8) :P :lol:

In all seriousness... congradulations man... one heck of year for sure... and there's still 5 and 1/2 months left! Can't wait to hit the water with you again this year. Fish on my shoaliefarian brethern!

Peace Out.

One of my "lake buddies" can't understand why we chase all those "little river fish" :lol:

Great job BD!

Truckin, I don't get it? Maybe I am just slow today. Are you referring to the fact that I crop out my pics sometimes to be a little more discrete about where i am at?

Yeah, Truckin', I know what you're getting at. The fish seem a little bigger in the pictures. And that "fat" shoalie at the top...well, I stumbled upon the original pic, which proves that BD "improves" his pictures.

The original...

Compare this one to the one above...

(Sorry BD, in my jealousy for all those big fish you catch, I couldn't resist it. :lol: )

TBC, that is very creative. I must say you did a fine job on that photoshop pic.

Hooch boy, when we goin? I would be glad to teach you some things about catching big fish. Your grandad knows a thing or two about that too. Maybe he will take you to the shoaliepalooza in the spring and we can hook up on a float.

Randy, if you can make it to some of the outings and continue to gather some of the awesome advice that members of this board will give you, I know you will have a nice year of Hawgs in your future! :lol: Anyone can do it if I can. :oops:
