Back from 'Bama

I got back yesterday from my Annual (although I missed one year) bass fishing trip to Alabama. This year was especially enjoyable since my Dad and son both accompanied me. For the newer readers who aren't familiar with this little jaunt, I have the opportunity to fish some private ponds / lakes (45 - 70 acres) owned by a Business Associate of mine. These are not pay-to-fish lakes - they are strictly private property that get fished an average of less than once per week per lake. And they have World-Class bass fishing in them. I like to make full disclosure that these are not public waters, but I make absolutely no apologies for being able to fish there. On the contrary - I love it here! I've caught my biggest bass by far here, and usually a lot of fish as well.

I'll post a full, detailed post this week, but, in a nutshell - it was windy and cool for over half the time we fished. Tough to control the boat. Since I had caught 2 over 10 pounds last year, I sort of expected to do the same, or better, this year. Our best was 7-1/2 pounds. But we got a LOT of fish from 3-1/2 to 5 pounds, and all of us went over 7.

It was a GREAT trip again. Here's one teaser pic. And , no, it's not my cat. (But she'll probably show up on the recap!)

Every picture tells a story. That picture of Dad and your son and that fine Bass is a memory maker. No apologies necessary, Wolfy! Everyone of us would jump at an opportunity to fish a private pond or ponds like that.

Nothing like Bass fishing with your Dad, unless you can also take your son along!!! What a great trip. Look forward to the full post!!

Those are great three generation trips. Had one myself last summer to Big Bear Lake in So Cal.

JEALOUS!

Not just of the fish, but of the three generation trip. I hope to do that some day as well.
