    Do you think a bass of the same size would of taken a plug in daylight???? or did it just home in on the vibrations and believed it was a bigger meal like a mackeral in distress that it was about to take, or do you think its just a case of putting a lure past a fish like that and it wouldn't be able to resist snapping at it???

    I know Harry said it put up a good account of itself but the fish around 6lb went on longer runs and stripped more line from the reel and darted about a lot more, were the bigger fish went on a short run and put up slower more dogged fight..

    most of the biger fish i have read about lately have been taken on bait in daylight ,but i was talking to jeff mcalister yesterday ,they have been getting them on bait and plugs in daylight up to seven pound ,and two have been caught around the ten pound mark ,

    Come on Harry, you really didn't expect to catch another of that size did you..... That was a very special fish and i a really glad i was there to witness its capture and its safe return, maybe next year it might fall to me..... Well there's nothing wrong with dreaming is there?

    I have the picture etched in my mind (probably forever) the moment i seen you walking through the darkness towards me with this monster of a bass, saying i think this could be a double Gary... :surprise: :surprise:

    Then a 10lber the following year by mr powson .........
    So many big fish caught by so few with very limited windows of oportunity :yes: Unreal to me .
    Whats peoples thoughts on why that area produces such good quality bass ?
    Even in the window of the local tackleshop over there is pics of some real good quality of bass .
    Is it the lack of pressure causing the bass to grow big or is it more than likely down to the seas rich currents around there I forget how many currents clash think its 3 ? , you just have to take a look on the mull in full flood . Its got to be seen to be believed ......
