    Yesterday evening I got out for the Sunset bite and hooked a few nice 2-3 lbrs. , there hitting the baits harder and fighting harder ea day. Didn't conect with any lunkers but got great action from the few chunkies I did.
    There was one super lunker around 6 lb with a whale tail just 2 ft from the bank just hanging out and for 15 min. I tried everything but totally ignored me.
    Then I will add a few pics from a quick midday pond hit too.

    All these bass r wild not planters, all These retention ponds are connected to larger Bodies of water that surround the property that hold fish then when everything floods during the rainy or hurricane season fish and there eggs travel and flow through all these drain system and life begins in these retention ponds.
    All the bass I hook in these ponds r catch and release so they can get bigger and live to spawn more future lunkers.
    Now this is going to blow your mind, all these lunkers I hooked and have been posting latley some almost 6 lbrs. Are from fountain ponds that are 2 yrs old and less, what happened when Irma hit us last year everything flooded and got pushed and traveled through the drain systems from the older ponds which r around a decade old into the new ponds, and I have hooked and lost one dd in a pond only 1 1/2 old already.
    Thnx 4 following my post!.....tra

    It was a Long day yesterday i passed out last night as I was ready to post ...lol

    So yesterday eveing i hit this one pond where I had some good lunker hits before but no hook ups. I am in the corner of the pond throwing lateral cast along the bank reeling it in and as I was ready to pull my bait out the water a nice lunker pops out of nowhere just gets a nibble on my bait, I freeze holding my pole and worm at the top of the water as the lunker was deciding to take it as we had a stare down but turns slowly back down into the black hole drain pipe, now my adrenaline is flowing with excitement so I quickly run back up the bank a few feet out of sight switch the blue worm bait to a zoom blue lizard then toss back out reeled it back in and set it right on the edge and lip of the huge underwater drain pipe and I feel a real light nibble and my line starts to slowly move back out and I set the hook and bam, I hooked that same lunker i just missed, got it up on the bank for pics and stats and back in the water for safe relief, I had two small gators within a few feet of me but they stayed put which is very unusual when I have a fighting bass on the line.
    The around 8 pm I zoomed to another pond I lost a solid 6 lbr two nights ago, had it right up to the bank it did the head jerk and the hook was out and the fish was gone, it was a Heartbreaker it broke the water like a tarpon.
    I had no luck hooking that lunker but did get a couple of nice 2 and 3 lbrs out of that pond, last bass hook up at 8:20 pm had a head lamp on had to get the hook out as a 4 ft gator was coming for me had to high step it to get away and get the fish unhooked and back in. That's the only problem fishing ponds at night here is dealing with gators or i would do it more often.
    Here's more pics of the lunker and other bass I have hooked over the last 3 evenings, u guys r probably tired of looking at Bass pics but until I get my pb trophy bass or DD bass I will not rest...
    Now I am challenging myself to get at least two 5 lbr hook ups within one fishing session until I hook my DD.
    Thnx 4 following my post!......tra

    Yeh i never got to finish my evening fishing adventure 2 nights ago I tripped and fell while walking the bank and a very sharp rock cut a deep 2 in gash on my shin so I had to head back to the house to repair myself, should of got stiches but I am my own emt and duct tape works just fine.....lol

    Yeh John most lunkers this time of year start moving towards the shallows to feed. During the day they stay more in cover then at night they start to cruise the banks more, the brighter the moon light the deeper they will go to feed and less light they will stay more at the top and close to the bank.
    I got out last night around 7pm till 8:25 and only had one bite and hook up, the ponds r dropping water dramatically right now and the water elevation change could be slightly effecting the bite.
    Did a mid day hit the other day hooked about a 8 lb. On the frog pulled it up on the wet grass and the hook came out an the fish snaked it's way back in, ffnn hart breaker, it's OK plenty of lunkers to still hook and I don't forget where any of them hang out.
    But as soon as the sun starts to set and the water gets calm the bites start coming one after another, I want to stay out later to fish but the gators make it tuff, some ponds have 2 gators and u really have to be on your toes when u hook a bass they r on it for a free meal....tra

    Thnx dt!
    After the Kentucky Derby finished I did a quick change to hit a close small pond before sunset it was 7:40 and on the seconed cast I hooked this hard fighting lunker it caught me by surprise when I saw it break the water with that big bucket mouth my drag was tight and it still was peeling some off, I carfully worked it till I could drag it up the bank.
    Weighed it real quick only 4.65 but a solid 4.65 from head to toe. But I hook plenty of these size lunkers just need to get a 7,8,9 or 10 lb. On the bank for my pb and trophy bass program...
    So I fished only 30 minutes till about 8:15 hooked one more and I was good to go I had for my lunker fix for the night......tra

    Got out last night for the sunset bite I wanted to try a new top water pivot frog by Sebile I received in the mail yesterday, it has a single hook set up instead of a double. They didn't stock them at BP or wally mart had to order on ebay, I ordered a white color frog a top bass pro who did many years fishing bass at night said the white will out preform the darker color frogs, ok I will give it a shot.
    So I get to a corner of a pond and right away there's a lunker chilln at the bank, I back off a few feet our if sight cast the frog out 15 yrds drag it back across the top water and as soon as it gets in front of the lunker it slams it hard and almost pulled my pole out my hands I had no slack then I bumped the bale open by accident and then with slack the hook came out, damn damn damn! Almost 5 lbr for sure.
    Well at least I know the frog worked out great right away and a few more feet down the bank I got another top water strike on the frog and this time I didn't loose it, great hook set! Then one more hit but no commitment.
    So I am very happy with the frog and the single hook concept I am pretty sure I won't loose as many as I did with a double hook frog u can get a better hook set with a single hook, The top water hits r increasing ea. Day and will only get better.....tra

    Had a buzy day and all is wanted to do is hit the ponds, it was around 7:45 I went to spot where I have had my takal taken by huge lunkers and I was working my dark worm though the Water and right when I was about to pull it up 2 huge bass followed it in. Try running agian but no intrest, threw a lizard no intrest. So went I work the other bank side and threw out my new sebile white pivot frog and I get the most gigantic top water hit of my life I get the hook set it comes out full throttle and it was a 10 or 12 lb. Freeking huge bucket mouth, it could swallow a cat, I got over excited try to muscle it up on the bank just barley on the bank and the frog comes off and the fish flip flop back in my hart is crushed my quest for my pb could off been over, but noooooo I messed up.
    So it's getting dark I went back over where the other lunkers were dodging me and decided to throw out a swimming bait and bam I get the hook up and it's a super nice lunker was peeling my line but got it up on the Bank took my stats and pics and released it back in, 21" and almost 5 lbs.
    So it made me feel good after I just lost a double digit to land nice lunker still. Thnx for following my post.....tra

    Here's some nice sunset bass from the last couple of nights.
    Yesterday I hooked this solid 4 1/2 lbr with a 4 ft gator a few feet from me sleeping on the bank I cranked that fish in so fast and quite got it up on the bank with out hooting and hollaring took the pics and stats and released it back in and the gator was still sound asleep so I took a selfie with it......tra

    P s. Found a whole clutch of turtle eggs and now that the water is recideing u can see some of the lunkers beds they look like moon craters.....

    Last few days its been on and off rain storms so I gave the bass a break for a couple of days and hit the ponds last night for the sunset bite.
    Water on the pond banks rose around 3 ft. I knew the rapid water level rise would effect the bite and was totally murky and cloudy. After an hr of casting and 3 ponds later not one single nibble or bite. I was throwing everything out there but no takers.
    Finally around 8 pm I decide to throw my new sibile white top water frog and first cast bam a quick violent strike with a quick hook set and it was on.
    Got it on the bank for some quick pics and then released back in. Nice solid 3 lbr with good length.
    I am so impressed with the white sibile single hook frog it definitely gets lunkers to hit it and a great hook set.
    Thought I was going to go home skunked which is rare for me but I work hard and don't give up easy on hooking a bass, thnx for following my post....tra

    Had a real good downpour today so I was able to hit up one of my favorite ponds on the back course thats a few acers big with a bridge for the sunset bite, I would have it all to myself, oh yeeehh...
    The wind died down completely the water was like glass I was working the top water frog but a real healthy 5 ft. Gator got excited so I moved around and switched to my blue lizard and worm and the hits kept coming one after another with the bass, nothing to big but alot of action the gar were hitting like crazy but was only able to hook one a nd land it, they r alot of fun.
    Just for the heck of it I just tossed the jig head hook out with just a little tiny piece of worm on it , it was mostly hook and I still hooked a bass on it, the bite was on. Stayed out till 8:45 pm but it was real dark had a little hike back, ran into turtles and snakes and toads oh my,,,,,,lol Thnx 4 following my post!......tra

    Had a great sunset session between 7-8:30 I hooked and landed 6 bass on the frog. Got a nice 2 and 3 lbr and the rest were small, lost a few to. I stuck strictly with the frog the whole session it was so productive.
    Then I ran into a 3 ft water moccasin and he wanted some frog too, how cool, got some good vid also....tra
