16.0 in. Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing in Michigan on 05/26/12
16.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Willard Gage @ Watershed Tackle fishing on Saturday May 26, 2012 at 08:30 near Walled Lake in Oakland County, Michigan (MI), United States North America using a 10 inch Berkley worm watermelon, VMC spinshot a Worm by Berkley

Water temperature at 74 degrees F in Walled Lake. Continuing to catch mixed bags of bluegill (4, shown previously) and pumpkinseeds (4, shown previously).

Since it looked as though I was not going to hit a 9 inch pumpkinseed or 10 inch bluegill, I started throwing artificial baits for bass (landed 2, shown here, 12 & 16 inches) or pike (caught 1 at end of trip, see upcoming post).

The bass was caught on a 10 inch Berkley worm , modified into a stick worm by removing the auger tail, drop-shotted wacky on a VMC spinshot hook. This hook held fast (unlike the small #8 I use on the panfish) and I am looking forward to catching more bass on this rigging.
