Well had the gf come over to the house tonight and we headed out to the river with my kayak. Went to the closest access to my house which I’ve been told doesn’t hold many fish. Didn’t expect great results considering there was going to be 2 of us in my one person yak and I never catch fish if I’m with my gf. So I’m throwing something new to me a weightless trick worm on a size 3. First cast I get a hit and knew it was a good fish fought it for around 30 seconds got it close to me and as soon as I got a look at her she spit it. Easily the biggest smallmouth I have ever hooked in my life. Traigic moment. Casts later I get another one which was 13 inches. She managed to lose the trick worm (I forgot my fishing backpack in my truck) so I was left with no other choice than to call it a day and spend the rest of the night swimming. A potential epic evening ruined due to a bonehead mistake.

You should have swam back to the truck and grabbed some more. :)

My favorite bait of all time. Get some bigger hooks. You won't find me near the water without a bag of bubblegum Zoom's. 

 

Last year somewhere on that river on a Zoom.

That is a really good fish!! I’m addicted to those Niangua River smallies! I will get some bigger hooks and try some new colors also! I was using zoom water melon

Oneshot 😂😂  I feel like I’ve read on here before that you said “I’ll stop eating them when they quit making them out of meat” probably the funniest thing I’ve read on this website. Lol

I don’t keep any bass I catch but as long as regulations are followed I’m not gonna hold a grudge for you keeping legal fish. With that being said I hope you don’t fish the same hole as me 😂😂😂

Ok I remember when many Bass were ate. Hey guess what they are still Good eating and I will continue. Just because they are easy to catch with a Lure and can be released don't make them different.
