Tres Marias 347 LB YFT (Puerto Vallarta, Mexico)


« on: February 18, 2018, 05:18:22 PM »

Spent the past weekend bass fishing on Lake Seminole, the GA-FL one. Numerous bass tournaments were in progress on Saturday, but I was down there just fishing with friends. One of the guys I fish with provides fish for a fish fry for a local church group. One of the best bass fishing days I've had in years. My best 5 would have weighed almost 25 lbs. Pic attached of my 2 biggest, 6.25 and 5.8. I released these 2 females full of eggs, much to my fishing partners dismay. We did clean 13 bass Saturday evening that weighed around 35 lbs.
One of the biggest tournaments Saturday was a GA high school qualifier. About 160 boats with an adult non-fishing boat operator and two HS fishermen were zipping all over the lake. It was great seeing all these young people competing in an outdoor activity for school bragging rights and scholarship money. Weather was scattered clouds, temp in the low 80's, but a brisk 15 knot SW wind made fishing some areas difficult. Plus we had 2-4" of rain last weekend so a mud line was moving down the lake. I haven't been able to find out the results of the HS tourney.
It was a tremendous weekend with good friends, good food, and great fishing.
Mike

I forgot to add that the grandkids gave me the hat for Christmas. That's probably why I did so well!
