Does that mean that all the exquisite paint work one can see in the gallery is for nothing? Or just for fishermen? Or perhaps you are going to catch an even bigger one after you paint the lure? But after such a catch, are you going to paint the swimbait, after all? Knowing that this may alter the action which is most probably "guilty" for the catch?

BTW, you are not the only one to catch a fish on bare wood. I remember someone did the same some time ago.

Nice catch.

I guess we all know that a nice paint job is as much for us as it is for the fish. I think that's the icing on the cake. If it were'nt so , we would'nt be here spending all this time. I can't wait to try painting the lure. I'll take my chances. That fish probably liked the profile of the bait and that's all he needed. After all, it is a pretty light colored wood and all the fish could see was the belly since it was near the surface.

I'm absolutely catch and release. That fish was caught in my pond in my front yard. One of my pets. He was probably caught somewhere else and transplanted. I'll show you one of my other pets that I caught last month on a soft swimbait. She was 9# when I released her in February and 8# in June.

It doesn't say where your from in your profile, but the 2 bass in the photos look like pure northern strain bass. Long and lean compared to the football shape that is common with Florida cross. How big is your pond and do you supplement the forage with stocked baitfish?

Go back to the trophy gallery. I'll show you the springtime photo of the same bass and one other. That fish is 24" x 19" girth and was 9# in February. My pond is only one acre or less. I have it stocked with coppernose bluegill, fatheads and bass from numerous places. I have Floridas, F-1's and Northern..even a few from the marshes. Those big fish were stocked full grown. I caught them and brought em to the pond.
