Default i finally caught me one...yahooooo

well i finally grabbed one,(smallmouth) id say just under 2lb's.. but considering it is my first bass ever on a lure (in my life) im pretty stoked, i was using a POP-R in shallow water, about 20 ft off shore, some vegetation..as soon as that thing hit the water 3 seconds later he hammered that thing, put up a good fight too.. so i dedicate him to all the guys here who have given me great advice on technique and great lures that have helped them catch fish..

Very nice--your first lure fish, and a good one at that. Keep it up; you'll find that smallmouth of all sizes are pretty scrappy.

The thing to do is buy you a disposable one to keep in the boat. That way you can snap one of the big one.

nothing wrong with a pop-r except ya have to wait for the rod to load up before setting the normally dull hooks. and then the typically will get off at the boat.
