Big Bass – 1st attempt

One of my 13 for 13 goals is to catch a big bass – at least 6 pounds…hopefully closer to 8 pounds. Since this is “the perfect time”, we decided to go to the Withlacoochee for my first attempt to catch this bass. Viola! In less than an hour…

Sarah’s friend, Danielle, caught a six pound bass. In fact, she caught two six pounders. I did not catch a big bass.

I caught a two pound bass. Not bad, but I’ll be doing some more fishing this year.

It was still a pretty good day…beautiful, warm, Florida weather.

Had to commandeer the boat from the heron.

We watched a heron feeding its young in a nest just a few hundred yards from the dock.

And before heading back in, we saw the moonrise. No big bass…but a wonderful day. Looking forward to the 2nd attempt!
