    I haven’t really fished for bass since I moved here from the mid-west 17 years ago. Being that I recently moved to the south sound area, I decided to try something a little different.

    The majority of the fish (bass) that I observed, along with a few others that I caught, were fairly close to shore (maybe 6 – 10 feet), and were hiding in structure (trees, etc.) in water that was in the 2 – 4 foot depth range. The fish in the picture was swimming near the perimeter of a shore side weed bed, and was about 10 feet from the shore in approximately 5 feet of water. It took a lightly weighted red bunny leech that was 3 inches and length, which I presented using a very slow retrieve.

    Nice bass! South Sound lakes have pretty good LMB fishing. I know of a couple lakes where 8+pounders have been caught. Funny thing, I lived in the Midwest for a short time many years back and got hooked on fishing for LMB. I swear every farmer in Missouri has a bass pond on their property.

    Oh yeah, SoCal has some fatties all over the place. I still haven't been able to fish their famous ones, Dixon, Castaic and Casitas. They got hogs in there 20+ lbs!!! Unreal
