A Bass to Remember!


Grant MacKinnon

8618 222nd court Salem

I was fishing with my grandpa on Hooker Lake for bass when we saw this bass under a willow tree. Since it was shallow water, I decided to cast a jitterbug and not get caught in the weeds. After I casted the jitterbug, it only took 1 twitch for the bass to explode on the lure and give me a fight i wont forget! I caught the bass and we measured and weighed it. I wont ever forget this catch, because it was the biggest bass I've ever caught, but also that my grandpa suffered a stroke a week later and is unable to fish as of now.
