Nice Bass

Took my son out fishing last night. My son is 5 so worms are the deal to get him into fishing. I snap off the barbs and use long shank hooks. That makes it easier to just wiggle the pond fish right off. My son caught a nice pickeral and a few calico bass. I couldn't bring the flygear cause of limited time and the need to focus on the boy. I brought a spinning rod for the occasional in between worm cast. MY son and I were out on this point fishing when I decide to toss this big clunky spinnerlure into the side cove. Wham, then tug, then big swirl. Turned out to be a 5lb Largemouth!
Flyfishing this spot would have been impossible without a boat. But I want this to be the year I get into largemouth on the fly. And this trip reaffirms the quality of the largemouth fishing in our area. I need to buy a 6 wt. now.
