Spur of the moment desicion to go plugging for some bass last night turned out to be a good decision. Me and my mate fishe a couple of venues with bass being our target.

On arrival of our first venue we both gave a good half hour on sidewinders with no success. We changed to some sub surface and surface lures again no takes.

Being a little disappointed we decided to bite the bullet and change venue for calmer waters.

After a nice relaxing walk we both set out this time with surface plugs and sub surface plugs and tried our various collection out again without much success. This time however there was a lot more movement with many a large splash heard around us and a few seen I was quietly confident of catching whereas my mate I guess was less confident I my new found venue.

After much perssistance we were about to pack up and abandon our quest when my mate was saying to me he was walking the dog so to speak with his lure even taking the bins out when bang a vey nice conditioned bass attacked his Yozuri mag popper. After a short spirited fight he landed his first ever surface lure caught bass with very impressive vital stats. It measured just shy of 600mm long and weighed dead on 5 and a half pounds. A great fish mate well done. Even better he released the beast to fight another day. Well done.

Nice report , love the idea of taking a tape measure fishing, i wouldnt as it would be a jinx for the same reason i never take a plastic bag for any fish i catch as it would definitly result in a blank.
