16.5" Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage fishing on Saturday July 16, 2011 at 08:00 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a Berkley Power worm, 4 inch – pumpkinseed a Worm by Berkley

Out again to see if the pattern holds. I sure do like the heavier rod combo. I am combing the best attributes of drop shotting (finesse technique) by using fluorocarbon, but since I only get three hours to actually fish using 14 lb test and 3/4 ounce weight in order to cover as much water as possible (power fishing). This way I can also get a good hook set because I am dropshotting over chara which was snagging my weight on the hookset, causing me to lose fish when I was using lighter spinning gear. I was able to boat three fish between 12 1/2 and 16 1/2 inches (largest shown here).
