So i went with my friend Robin to Basslake a week after our first expedition to there, and man i couldnt have asked for a better day on the water.
I was on the water for about an half an hour when i hooked in to my first big fish for the day, it was +- a 3.1KG (6.8LB) fish ( forgot to weigh it DOH! )
About a half an hour later I caught a lovely 1.8KG (3.9 LB) fish that gave quite a show with a few jumps out of the water.
After the 3.9er i quickly retied and cast out again when i felt a bump and the running of my line, i set the hook and got a really good fight i really thought this was going to be my new PB (unfortunately not, but it gave a good fight).
I landed the fish and it weighed in at 3.7KG (8.1LB)
The fishing then started getting really tough with small dinks now and then at about lunch time a caught a 1.5KG (3.3) and soon saw that this was the fish my friend caught last week, it was at exactly the same spot and this bass had a distinct jaw with a black spot underneath the jaw and also had a wound on the side of its body...
Fishing went quiet again when i hooked up on a big one again but he got away.
I then moved to the "fishbowl", which was one of my favourite spots years ago but was not producing well the last few times.
I got to the spot and through out my bait, soon to see a very nice specimen swimming just underneath me, i reeled in and cast it just in front of it, a few seconds later he took my bait and i landed a very nice 3.5KG (7.7LB) fish.
Then we had to get of the water.
This was one awesome day!!!
