18.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Sunday May 13, 2012 at 03:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a 1/16 oz Weldon’s pink jig w/ redworm a Marabou

Water temperature on Walled Lake about 68-70 degrees between 3:30 & 6:30pm. I was able to catch 7 largemouth bass (1x 10 in, 2x 12 in, 2 x14 inches & 1x 18 inches (largest shown here) and my first school of sunfish of the season (8 pumpkinseeds 8 & 8 1/2 inches). All were caught on a Weldon’s pink steelhead jig & redworm. Interesting that no bluegill or smallmouth hit. All fish caught drop shotting the jig in order to make longer more accurate casts. All fish caught on extremely long casts at the edge of weedbeds where the fiorm bottom transition allows for the proper spawning habitat. I have noticed that with the lack of snow this winter and rain this spring the lake is down a good 12-18 inches. I think this is why the fish are so much further from shore than last year.
