2.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Daniel Winsor fishing in Sherman Lake in New York on 07/24/09
17.5" / 2.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Daniel Winsor fishing on Friday July 24, 2009 at 16:30 in Sherman Lake near Warrensburg in Warren County, New York (NY), United States North America using a yellow/black rubber worm. a Worm

My family went to Rydin-Hy Ranch in NY for a few days.
For the first few days, my kids and I caught only Bluegill & other Sunfish. (using worms)

This day, I was with my son fishing and we weren't catching much. My son had forgot his hat and he was starting to get a headache from the heat. I told him to go back to the cabin and lie down.

Before he left, he glanced down and saw a partial black and yellow rubber worm at the waters edge. He picked it up handed it to me and went back to the cabin.

I said "what the heck", and proceeded to hook the rubber lure onto the hook.

It was maybe 1 or 2 cast into the shallow weeds when the hook "got stuck" (or at least I thought it was stuck).
After about 2 seconds, the line took off to the left pulling hard. That's not stuck I said. If only my son was here! I had my youngest son go get my oldest son from the room to see it.

Of course, I let the 2lb bass go after I caught it. :)
This was the first bass I had ever caught! If it wasn't for my son finding the lure. . .

So really, if you think about it, we both caught it!

Great story, you know every time I go to a new spot I look around to see what they throw away or leave behind

Great story. There's nothing like a first catch of a species. I still remember my first Largemouth Bass and how I couldn't wait to catch another one.
