It’s true – I haven’t been posting as many videos to YouTube and articles to OutdoorHub as I was earlier this spring, but it’s not because I’m lazy. Quite the opposite, really. You see, for the last 3 weeks I’ve been working as a youth counselor at Pine Cove Ranch in Texas.
I love many things about Pine Cove, and one of them is they have a private pond loaded with largemouth bass. Big ones, too! I caught my PB (personal best) bass in the pond last summer, so I just had to give it another try recently. Check out the video below to see how I did.
(Spoiler alert: You won’t be disappointed in the hog I catch on this video!)
As I describe in the YouTube text, when I set the hook, I first thought I had a stick. Then I thought it was a small fish, then I thought it wasn’t even a bass. But then the “something else” jumped and I knew I’d hooked a big bass.
Not surprisingly, I caught the fish on a Rat-L-Trap, which I discussed in detail in my video, “Top 5 Bass Lures for Ponds.” Don’t you just love it when a plan comes together?
Enjoy the video!
