22.0" / 4.6 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Roy Kramer fishing on Thursday May 19, 2016 at 07:16 near Crescent City in Putnam County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Worm

Took a picture of my first fish of the day and spent probably enough time to make a dozen non productive casts. Had several strikes going across the waist but suspect Gar, which hang out there. After an executive decision to swap out a tore up worm, got a hard hit on the first cast before I had tripped the bail back. Turned off the trolling motor, made a very hard hook set, then got about twenty yards of 8lb line pealed off in a single run. Nice strong fish played me for a good ten minutes. Battery crapped out so I began paddling back. According to current rules, this was my only legal fish. My wife and I prefer smaller Bass for eatin, but this and no fish, were our options. We now have leftover Bass, but it is so clean, even this big ole fish was delicious. Heck the cheek filets are the size of a fast food burger patty. Gonna be sore from paddling tomorrow so next fishing opportunity is probably Monday, we'll see how tuff/stupid I am.
