Birthday Bass

We were forced to fish a small portion of the lake that we normally do not because it was the only water that was free of ice. I was slow rolling a Mepps XD (silver/silver with a dressed hook) when it felt like i had snagged a limb. 10 minutes later i held the largest bass of my life. We took the fish to the house to be photographed and returned it to the water where it can spawn this spring.
