I tried. I ran these men through some pretty bad water to get to where I thought our best shot at a big fish would be. We spent 5 hours there and threw everything we had in the boat at em. 3 bites, 1 boated fish and a walrus sighting. Unfortunately I caught it and no I didn’t get it to scales. No surprise there. We made the move back north and caught 11 fish the last 3 or so hours of fishing. Todd is the new record holder for highstakesbassin.com, but not in the category we were all hoping for…..see first pic. Lol…..all of our bass were like the ones pictured. 1-4 lbs. I really enjoyed these three days and sure hope I get the opportunity to take these gents back out in the future.
