Paul Bass

Weight: 2-12
Angler: Paul Kessler
Date: July 4
Location: Banner Marsh
Lure: Creature bait (dark purple)
Angler Comments: All of the bass were caught on weed edges with deeper water close by and they stopped biting around 9am.  I only used two baits - a dark purple creature bait and a green/yellow/orange frog.  First real success with a frog and it is very difficult to wait those couple of seconds you need to in order to ensure they have the bait.  When they crash the surface the instinct is to set the hook right away.
Top 5 Weight: 15-8 (4-12,2-15,2-12,2-9,2-8) culls 2-7 and 2-3

Thanks fellas, the streak goes on.  Keep ‘em coming.  Talk to you later.  Troy
