May 25th - Had a great day of fishing today with an interesting story to boot!

First off - Leo, Leo's dad, and Vince all joined me down at Haddon lake. Leo was kind enough to give me a Kopper's Live Target Bluegill Imitation Crankbait worth $13. After 20 minutes of casting the crankbait around, I hooked into a huge bass! I fought it for a minute or so, and right as I thought the Bass was ready to be landed, I got ready to lift him onto 3 feet up - onto the ledge I was standing on. As I was pulling him up, my line snapped! I couldn't believe it, and on impulse, I plunged into the water, grabbed the Bass with my hands, and placed him onto the shore.

I don't think I could've channeled my inner Mike Iaconelli if I wasn't wearing my hat with his signature on it... The bass weighed a whopping 3.5 lbs, a PB for Haddon Lake, and as I was holding it in the water, waiting for Leo to come take a picture, the Bass squirmed and got himself free! It was all good though, since I managed to get my new lure back. Using that exact lure, I caught 3 more bass weighing 1 lb, 1.5 lbs, and 1.5 lbs. My buddy Vince mananged to catch a 2.5 lb bass and a 1.5 lb bass (first image) flipping a soft plastic craw into the pads. Lastly, I caught a feisty 20 inch, 2 lb pickeral using a suspending jerkbait (second picture).

Haddon Lake has been exceptional lately! Maybe it's exceptional the whole year... =)

Best of luck for all of us,

Long Days and Pleasant Nights,
