My Largest Bass

Type: Freshwater
Region: Southern
Location: Local Pond
Tags: largemouth bass

I went fishing with my dad in a pond in Avenue, Maryland and WOW I had a great surprise. I was using my new fishing pole from the fishing challenge (thank you so much DNR) when all of a sudden, wham something hit my line. It fought for a while and then when I saw it jump out of the water then finally I was able to land the fish. It was a largemouth bass. I wish I would of brought something to measure it because it looked like it was the largest bass that I ever caught.
