Default New PB Bass on weird bait, and first topwater fish!

Before 20-minutes of fishing had been through, I hooked a small one on a 1/4oz chartreuse buzzbait. This is my first topwater fish. Here's a pic or two, it's was 12-inches and maybe close to a pound. Looks smaller in pics, lol.

It looks as though it's bleeding out of it's gill. But it was really bleeding out of it's tongue/mouth, the blood was dripping out of it's mouth and exited out of it's gill. He was released unharmed.

Now the weird thing. I had a rod out with dough-bait on it for Catfish, and I get a tug. I set the hook and hooked into what I thought was a Carp, but it turned out to be an 18" Bass, about 3 or 3 1/4lbs. Wasn't too much of a fight with saltwater gear...

Them deep hooked ones I think usually die. I could be wrong. I normally have problems when its windy and the senko bite is light with deep hook sets , as I dont notice the bite fast enough. I usually dont bother with taking the hook out , as it will do more damage , I just cut the line, remove the bait and release.

Those are some good looking bass man! That bass that ate the catfish bait must not have an ounce of class though, hahaha

I'm almost sure it lived, as I didn't see anything floating. But I may have been wrong...I'd rather have one that was going to die with a hook out of it then one that is going to die with a Buzzbait in it's mouth.

Thanks guys. Yeah the Bass on dough-bait was weird..

I didnt suggest you should leave a buzzbait in its mouth. I said what I do with senko worm fishing and deep hooksets. None the less , I read recently in a BassTimes that the majority of bass that die actually sink instead of float.

In the supplied link , 4th paragraph it states that fish often float days later. http://www.texs.com/bass_mortality_study/study.htm

The last two paragraphs in this link are interesting.
