Persistence Pays off , Twice.
« on: Mar 07, 2023, 01:56 PM »
Twice in a week 2 healthy bass came for a photo shoot before returning home to talk about their above the ice adventure.

I received my first email confirmation of pin #1
Waiting on confirmation of pin #2
However #2 was slightly longer so I am confident on that one.

First one caught on a 5" Goldie.
Second on a 6" fall fish. 

Unfortunately no weight on the first one, batteries died in scale. 2nd one was 5 lbs. First one looked a bit fatter though.

In the double bass photo, bottom was pin #1 , top is #2 (5 lb bass) .

Gonna try for a third soon😁.

Hope everyone is finding some safe ice, it's out there👍 Just be careful and use that chisel (spud) .

Fortunately yes, only about 40 min north too. All set with the 2 hr drives for a little bit. I'll be doing that again soon enough lol.  We lucked out in that last storm. Only a few inches of heavy wet snow and sleet that turned into a couple inches of a white crusty layer.

Not sure about catch and keep, that goes by weight. Catch and release goes by length.

They've been doing it for quite a few years now. Better than killing a fish just for a pin. You also have to have it weighed at specific scales . I only know of Tom's bait SE mass.

Nice fish. You should get a pin for the 1st bass as well. It looks right there and they round up 1/4in as well
