Great fish Tbar!

The H&H is one of the most under-rated spinner-baits ever & cheaper than most spinner-baits.

I've always had good luck with them.

They remind me of the 1970's.

Went out to fish for culls this evening and instead caught this. Could be the twin to the one above. If Bob is right that bass caught in waters above 80 degrees will die from stress then I just killed another nice bass. I would be better off not fishing for culls at all until fall. Culls - 0

23-1/2 6#s

Beautiful fish, I bet over 7 pounds during prespawn. Hope it makes it!

Lance,

According to the RW calculator at 23.5 inches, a 100% fish should weigh 7.67 pounds if I am reading it right.

Great lure. And single hook makes it easier to release!

That's around 80% RW. You sure that's not a cull fish?

I think it is a nice looking fish. The head fits the body, not a big headed small body lmb. I think the summer months here in E. Texas warms the water temps quite high and make them less likely to feed. I'm no expert but I think if I had a fish that looked like that in August I might return it to the pond. Depending if I had a lot of 6 to 7" bg for them to feed on. And what if the lmb was to eat a 7" bg just before it was caught, how would that improve the weight at the time of the fish being weighed?

When I used to fish bass tournaments (40+ a year), nothing was more frustrating than to catch a really nice bass, all fat and healthy, drop it in the live well and later find it had coughed up a 6 inch BG. I could see that paycheck slipping away!! Sometimes it only took ounces to either be in the money or just another donater.

I think that fish looks good for late summer. She'd definitely stay in the pond here. We're having the second hottest summer in recorded history, and it's definitely affected feeding patterns.

That fish would stay in my pond, too, as it's at least 2# over our pond record, HA!

Tbar, I want to know where you got your hands on those H&H spinnerbaits. When my dad was taking me fishing as a kid, they were the "go to" bait down here. Haven't seen one on the shelf in ages, and thought they'd gone out of business.

Corn Coma......

So full of my corn they passed out.

Looking at them you would think the corn in my feeder was fermented.
