I got out to the Mississippi river for a late fall bassin day, was suposed to meet BP Dave Maas, but he couldn't make it so I hit the water by myself. I found a nice looking spot near some trees in the water and started jigging a berkley minnow on a 1 / 16th ounce jig. I got one on the first cast!, then I hooked into a huge one probably over 4 pounds. "fishface" Jim Bonin showed up just in time to take a pic for me.
Then he when flyfishing and started getting some smaller bass on surface flies. I kept flinging different plastic minnows and probably caught a dozen bass, three of them huge, the rest were "fun sized" it was around 30 degrees and windy, but I stayed plenty warm with my arctic Armor parka even though my waders did leak some!
they wern't all lunkers!
