Idaho Largemouth Bass

Idaho Bass


I was fishing for trout with my grandfather in the early spring, on a nice, sunny day. We were fishing with a simple worm on the hook, casting off of an old bridge, drifting with the current, and then waiting for something to hit. The morning had gone by without any success, but by the afternoon, I saw my pole start to bounce. After the fish took it, I set the hook and started the fight. Looking back, I’m not sure how I managed to land this beast. I was fishing with a fast action, UL power rod with 6 lb. line on. At first I thought it was a carp because of the way it just sat on the bottom, but after a couple minutes of working the fish, it rose to the surface and started jumping from the water. When it was all said and done, the fish measured at just over 20″, and was one of the most exciting fights I’ve ever had.
