    Was on the lake at 8:00 am.It was 25 degrees to start off but warmed up to be a beautiful day.Caught 6 bass by about 11:30 then they got lock jaw and didn't get any bites the rest of the day .We had fish on the fish finder most of the day,but once they stopped biting that was it.It was still good to be on the lake .

    COOL
    That's Awesome and not doubting 'YOUR' Fish but the 1 you have Titled Largemouth actually Looks like a Spotted Bass to me? With the blotched scales and slightly deeper 'V' notch in the Tail than a largemouth...that would be my Guess but I have been wrong before...I have caught Both many times and I would Bet that the 1 you have here is a nice Spotted bass...Nice catch nonetheless...First grandma I think I have seen wearing Camo LOL...Congrats on your Great Day

    Oh, Diane,Didn't know you had in with you LOL...When you look...With the Mouth Closed completely...The back of the mouth will NOT extend past the eye on a Spotted Bass and Spotted Bass have Tiny teeth on their tongue...Other than that, It's very Hard to tell them apart unless you have caught a bunch and then you can tell pretty easy...The mouth WILL extend past the Eye on a large mouth...Anyway LOL, Like you said, He was hubungest LOL

    No hard feelings either way...I have gotten into P N Contest over this with my Fishing Buddies LOL...Got a Free Dinner though LOL
