My son Phil is married now and expecting his own child soon, so it's hard to get him in the boat. We hit Hopewell this past Sunday and had no lucking fishing out for staging fish. Phil turned around and starting throwing to wood tight to the bank and caught this beauty. We didn't measure the length, but she went 6 pounds 3 ounces on our scale, his personal best. I'm guessing I won't have as much trouble getting him back in the boat the next time!
VERY NICE CATCH! I was down to Hopewell on Saturday and caught a 12" Bass on my 3rd cast and that was it for the day. Seems like know one else was catching on Saturday either. This is the 2nd nice Bass reported out of Hopewell in the last two weeks; so they are certainly in there. But again.....GREAT JOB on that nice fish.
