Unfortunately for me, 25 years of just dealing with tennis elbow has caught up to me. Trying everything to avoid surgery as it means six to twenty months of rehab and no fishing!  :bash:

My travels and trips will be limited this season. Will be counting on this thread to help me through lol. It's frustrating already and it's only January!  :yike:

I did manage to get things started this afternoon though! Had to lumberjack storm damage all morning but dipped out for three hours and got this dude and one super tiny one  :tup:

Drop shot, shakey heads, Carolina rigs and jigs deep until the water temps tick back up into the high 40's. Then mix in jerkbaits, lipless crankbaits and umbrella rigs.

Their primary transition from deep to shallow is around mid March. Largemouth will seek out wood and rocks  in the five to fifteen foot range for warmth. It only gets better as the water temps climb into the 50's in April through early May. Great time for swim jigs, swimbaits and spinnerbaits. Focus on the full moon phases now until the end of February and don't forget to share your pics please  :tup:

Not a sin.

However, they are not managed and restocked like trout, therefore it's up to us to ensure the future of the resource because there won't be a truck coming with thousands more year after year.

Yes, I tried eating a bass when I was 14 and it was disgusting. They're a product of their environment and it tasted like the dirty water I caught it in! I know some like them but I do not. Fortunately they are a thousand times more enjoyable to catch than they are to eat.  :twocents: :tup:

I've beer battered and deep fried quite a few smallmouth while camping on the Snake in Hell's Canyon. It wasn't walleye status, but I thought they were pretty tasty. I toss them all back anywhere else though.

I may be crazy, but a big bass is a bucket list fish for me.  I grew up reading Outdoor Life and Field and Stream but lived in trout country.  Probably 95% of the articles were about bass but I have only fished them seriously a couple of times. 

Great pics.

I grew up trout fishing as well. At age 13, while fishing with bobber and worms off a huge log at Thomas Lake in Everett WA, my best friend accidentally caught a largemouth bass and I haven't been the same since.  :chuckle:

Nine is a good day period.

The quickest, easiest way I've found to resize images from my phone is to email them to myself. Email asks me if I want to resize before sending, so I select 10% and then send them. Open email on my phone and presto, resized images.

This was the easiest way I found to post pics on Bass Boat Central and their system is way more strict than here  :tup:

I really enjoy looking at the bass pics everyone posts on this thread even though I not a bass fisherman yet.

I caught a bass this evening while trout fishing which was totally unexpected, released it and then realized I had just missed my chance to post a pic in this thread.

I was really bummed out.🤯

As I was slowly fishing my way back to the boat launch I casted out onto deeper water and as the lure hit the water fish one, I quickly realized it was another bass.

Well hereís my monster bass that gets me my fame in this thread, itís about the same size as the one I caught earlier in the evening.🤣

Itís a young largemouth bass right?🤔

@Boss .300 winmag

Same thing happened to me when I was 13 and 'just trout fishing' lol

The 38 years from then to now have been a blur!  :chuckle:

Welcome aboard  :tup:

Itís only my third bass ever, I caught one in high school drowning a worm at the bottom of Battleground lake on opening morning, I was more interested in 🍺 that morning.🤣

In my experience Newman is great until the water warms up.  It gets a ton of recreational boaters and water sports.  Also great after the summer.

I'll be fishing Little Payette Lake for spawning smallmouth this weekend. Hoping to have something worth sharing.

Gone down to the Columbia several times for smallmouth and really killed them one time. Got to watch @BULLBLASTER lose his favorite lure in a smallmouths face too!

Bubba is a natural fisherman, I canít leave him behind (not that I want to)! He asks me everyday if we can go fishing, got myself a great fishing partner!

Yes! I have 3 setups with my 3 favorite lurs rigged, seldom toss anything else. If I had a fourth rod, it would have a drop shot whacky rig on it.

My dad took us out fishing this morning. My son has been out before but this was my daughter's first fishing trip. My daughter caught several small fish and eventually settled into sitting in a blanket occupying my lap. My son managed to hook a 3 pound largemouth that measured 17 inches even about 30 minutes into the morning. He pulled in another largemouth that was 11 inches. We did pretty good for ourselves the whole morning and some of them transformed into fillets when we got home. I finally managed to hook a good sized one myself reeling in so we could go ashore at the end of the morning. 2 pounds for me and 15 1/4 inches. My son's is the top picture and mine is the bottom picture. And yes, my son's floatation device is under his jacket in the first picture.
