Another Night Pig!
« on: September 30, 2015, 10:12:08 AM »
Squeezed in another night trip on Monday night!

Being just 24 hours after the Super Moon, the night was pretty bright with a near full moon, but intermittent high clouds took the edge off the moonlight a little bit.

Landed 3 bass and had a couple of really nice misses on various topwater baits. The 3 bass I landed were 2 1/2 lbs. 3 lbs. and this beast, at 6 lbs. even!



She delicately inhaled a Hawgstomper buzzbait in water less than 2 feet deep, right near a small lily pad bed. There was no other cover anywhere near these pads, so either she was cruising, or she came from underneath those pads.

As I said, she delicately inhaled the bait, with just a tiny slurp. But once I set the hook I knew immediately that it was a really good fish.

I didn't have my net handy, so I played it to the boat and lipped it. Was glad to get a firm grip on it after playing ti all the way to the boat and having her spend a fair amount of time under the boat as she tried to run to deeper water  (whew)

I know I keep saying that I probably won't get out at night any more this year, but with the forecast for the rest of this week and into next week, I think I can safely say this was my last night trip of 2015  :'l :'l

But what a way to end the night fishing season!  :thumbup:

Here's another shot of this fish, after I tweaked it a bit.



I'm starting to get pretty comfortable with tweaking and enhancing fishing and outdoor pics  (yes)

@JackJ I just noticed this morning that you had asked this question about one of the other photos I had posted in the gallery, so I replied there. But basically it's the stock photo editing software on my Android phone and tablet.

It's not a single filter, but several of them used together until I get it to look the way I want it to. Still playing around a lot and getting used to it all, but way more comfortable with it now than I was two weeks ago  (yes)

Thanks @Buzzbait!
Nope... No special trailer. In fact, I don't use any trailer on my buzzbaits at all. No plastic trailer and no trailer hook.

My guess is that's probably a piece of the skirt you're seeing ;)
