Monday, 9/08, I had the pleasure of taking the same couple on a freshwater Bass trip, on the Oklawaha River near Ocala. Rich, being an experienced Bass angler, was doing pretty fair, catching a few medium size Bass, along with several Pike from the start.
Bridgette, on the other hand, was struggling a little trying to get the technique down of fishing with wild shiners.
Then it happened, ker-splash. Bridgette exclaimed, “Fish on”! Apparently the girl learns fast. While Rich and I had our backs turned, she managed to hook and reel in a huge 8 lb. Bass all on her own. WOW!
Before days end they had caught a dozen nice Bass (6 each), and several large Pike.
Lady Luck, I don’t think so!
