  • The Big One that got away...

    Allatoona is only a few miles from home so I went yesterday for a couple of hours. Something hit my Senko hard and took off like a freight train for the middle of the lake. About 75 feet away it jumped out of the water and shook the hook loose leaving me standing there wondering what the **** had happened. It would have easily been the biggest bass Iíd ever caught. I guess there was a reason he/she got so big. Of course nobody was around to see Moby Dick get away.

    I hate when that happens.

      Iím still new to the ĎToona but pretty sure I read white bass and stripers move into Little River in mid-March. The crappie bite is on but I havenít fished for them in many years. I donít like messing with live bait and still learning about jigs.

        This was a few years ago but the dates might be accurate.

          Amazing how often that the one that got away always would have been the biggest fish you ever caught!

            defiantly a phenomenon. Hard to get those fish out of my head. Had several last year, each was bigger than the last!

              Lmao so true. In all honesty though the larger fish do get away like that. As stated in the OP, they seem to have higher skill levels and unfortunately sometimes for us those skills can surpass our own.

              My tip for that situation is to keep rod low and bow to the fish when he jumps. Something I learned on Tarpon.

                  I lost a bass once that I know was over 10 pounds. How I know you ask?



                  She had her own scales.

                          Okay. That does it. Those pics are nothing more than a fluke.

                              Losing the biggest fish of a lifetime, just gives us another reason to buy more equipment in our quest..Been there, done that, so I understand how it feels. Keep on trucking rich7!
