Went for a couple of hours down to the sloughs. 4 bass: 3.3, 4.2, 5.4, and a nice 7.9 lb final cast (well, that was my intention...). Would have liked to weigh her before spawn. All C&R. All topwater. Pontoon.

Sweet! A 5.4 and a 7.9 sounds like a 5 star outing to me

Yeah, kind of, but there was a lot of effort in getting them, including carrying the pontoon about 1/3 of a mile, and right at the beginning it took a while to find the pattern. Then you had to hit areas that were the size of a small lily pad just right, from a distance. I spooked a couple, including one at least as big as the 7+. It was kind of a 4.5 rating, but sometimes the trips you work hardest at are the ones you end up remembering the longest. Like the one at FioRioto a few years back where it took 5 lures and nearly 50 casts to entice a bass that was only about 4 lbs, but finally I irritated her into biting. Turned her back, but still a memorable fish. So anyway, after a night's sleep, yeah, 5!

Impressive, I think my best at these ponds was maybe pushing 5lb.
