Lunch Break Lunker

Lunch Break Lunker

Chris Tingley

Garden City Michigan

I stopped at a private pond I know of on my lunch break. I was bass fishing with a 4" red tube bait. I threw it on a lilly pad and then pulled it off. Just as it dropped of the pad this guy came up and scarfed it down. I was fishing with a 7' medium heavy rod and he had no trouble flexing it nicely. I later caught another over 12" with a Zara Spook.
