Finally had a day above 35 degrees but wind was blowing at 20mph. Head out to a warm water discharge on the Mississippi for a few hours. The bass fishermen were out in full force, wading halfway down the river as far as my eyes could see. I found a shallow stretch between 2 groups of wading bass guys and set up. Quickly realized the ground was like quick sand, hence the other angers were avoiding that area.

Lost an absolute beast close to shore when it went around a large rock and cut the braid clean.

Was able to land this beauty soon afterwards. The length was along the same as my 42" net frame so I would think it weighed around 20lb.  Quick pic and release while my boots were stuck in the deep mud.

in spots like that, I take 10-15 min to gather some brush/sticks to make myself a walkway...  weak, thin, dry-rotted stuff works fine to distribute your weight -- kinda' like snowshoes

Great to get out!  Nice fish.   I would buy a bigger net so the fish will be bigger. :D

I have a 50" net, and it hasn't seemed to help me!:(
