The Big One that got away...
 
Allatoona is only a few miles from home so I went yesterday for a couple of hours. Something hit my Senko hard and took off like a freight train for the middle of the lake. About 75 feet away it jumped out of the water and shook the hook loose leaving me standing there wondering what the **** had happened. It would have easily been the biggest bass Id ever caught. I guess there was a reason he/she got so big. Of course nobody was around to see Moby Dick get away.

I hate when that happens.

:pissed:

At least you got bit. went to Lanier with daughter #3 today and the skunk got us. Couldn't get out of the wind on my crappie spots.
Any word on hybrids-whites running up the river yet?

Im still new to the Toona but pretty sure I read white bass and stripers move into Little River in mid-March. The crappie bite is on but I havent fished for them in many years. I dont like messing with live bait and still learning about jigs.

This was a few years ago but the dates might be accurate.

Amazing how often that the one that got away always would have been the biggest fish you ever caught! :)

defiantly a phenomenon. Hard to get those fish out of my head. Had several last year, each was bigger than the last! ;)

Lmao so true. In all honesty though the larger fish do get away like that. As stated in the OP, they seem to have higher skill levels and unfortunately sometimes for us those skills can surpass our own.

My tip for that situation is to keep rod low and bow to the fish when he jumps. Something I learned on Tarpon.

I lost a bass once that I know was over 10 pounds. How I know you ask? :huh:



She had her own scales. ;) :cheers:
