7 pound Bass

It's not 10 pounds like gunnut mentioned, but it's the biggest fish I've caught on a fly.

Redington Predator 8 Weight. (this rod is made for bass fishing) I'm glad I had it because that fish did a pretty good job of scaring me on this rod, he would have freaked me out if I had caught him on my 6 weight.

That fly is 5 or 6 inches long. The back is foam so it floats, and that lip makes it pop like a popper. There was no explosion like you see on TV when a bass takes a topwater lure/fly. My fly simply disappeared so I raised the tip to see what was happening and that fish took off like a freight train,

Now this is what I call FISHING.

He Ties the Fly, puts it in one of those BIG "Hollow Head" Bullets and shoots the fish at a mile and a half, down river and all with the 450b........

Hey! What? I can spin a fish yarn with the best of them and ah-sides, I like my story better!!

:o that's a dang nice bass for any type of rod :shock: but a fly rod :D that takes the cake! :mrgreen:

:) maybe you can plan a fishin' trip with me for redfish ;) it's becoming more & more popular for anglers to use 'um on big reds in the skinny saltwater flats down here too. 8-) i don't use one :| but i have the accomodations, boat and access to a vast saltwater marsh paradise, if you feel adventurous :)

:? Sorry for the late response :oops: i've been chasin' those furocious whitetails :lol:
:) anytime is good for the fishin' ;) we have no closed seasons :mrgreen: speckled trout on the inside (coastal marsh) is hottest from Sept thru April. by late May they move to the outside (offshore) and will spawn thru August. that's when we slam 'um at the offshore oil rigs :mrgreen: redfishin' is good on the inside all the time; but inside marsh is especially good with the buggy whips during the hot months, push poling and site castin'. i close down my fishin' camp and winterize the boats for the deer season, late October thru late January. i usually head back down in February and start fishin' again in early March before the big trout head south and eventually offshore. i have an 18' inshore boat and a 24' offshore boat so the fish are never out of range. :D
just let me know what time is best for either or both of ya and i can provide the accomodations, boats and know how. all you have to do is find your way here, get your liscense, and everything else is on me. i'm not a professional guide, but i spent my whole life rippin' the lips off of fish in the coastal marsh and near shore rigs. ;) if you hookup with me on facebook; dennis marrero, you'll have access to all my albums to get a glimpse of what i'm talkin' about. 8-)
:) ball's in your court now! :D Seriously, let's set something up. 8-)

night fishin' offshore. my neighbor & I, 50 trout!
