    Listen you've been given grief for years over your fish handling skills. Why have they not improved? You are obviously not a "bad" fisherman, but as vlogger, you could represent the community much better.

    Maybe time to learn some new recipes.

    Smallmouth Bass Fishing in Demcember with The EastBayAnglers

    Been Bass fishing and it has been very slow since nov some bass here & there 1-2 lb's in size. I was able to hook into this Crazy Smallmouth Bass, did not have a scale :[ but did not need one to see it was a big fish. Put up a Good fight, i played the fish not knowing how big it was until the end, and happy i did. It likely would have been a fish story if i was not taking my time and being patient. Here are some quick photos/still's from the Go Pro, the low light conditions made the pictures a bit darker than i would have liked. Wish i had more time to get a better shot but was more concerned with getting the fish back in the water as fast as possible. The fish was in shock by the end of the battle, so i left him in the water to revive and he swam off to get bigger. Photo has part of the tail cut off. This fish had insane Girth for it's size, i have never seen a bass so fat all the way around, never.
