any bass guys
« on: June 22, 2015, 05:26:35 PM »
as ive asked are any of you big bass chasers ive been doing it as long as i can remember by my sophomore year of high school i had already bought my bass boat (1989 bumble bee king bee with a hopped up evinrude). i started fishing tournaments my junior year and have since made some money fishing tournaments. i have taken up big bass chasing in the last year my dad looks at me like im crazy when he sees the baits im throwing i fish a super sized jig on a regular basis i may only get a handful of bites but i can guarantee ill catch a chunk.

I used to fish Largemouth but here in Colorado they are neither plentiful nor popular.    I fixed that for me by stocking the little gravel pit on the property where my partner and I ran our business.   I raised and caught some pretty good bass by Colorado standards.   There is a high altitude strain of Largemouths that grow pretty well here.  Sadly we sold the business and the property in 2000,  I loved using buzzbaits and jitterbugs in the evenings.   Fun to watch a nice one miss a couple times before hitting the bait.

Yep, I'll do bass any day of the week, but not crazy-nuts about fishing. I sure do enjoy it though!

I know how that is.  Only I worked at the lake.   I sure miss them days.

Nothing wrong with a little fishing out of a good bass boat!
