Guadalupe Bass Fish Story

Post by jeickstead » Fri Sep 04, 2015 2:18 pm

Yesterday I was practicing casting with my new line and rod just to get a little time on the Guadalupe in NB. I didn't catch anything, but I was playing with my new rod more than seriously casting to fish. On my way out I almost trip on some fishing line left in the river. I go to pull it up and along with the branch attached to the line is a nice 12" Guadalupe Bass. Still alive, I don't know how long he'd been hooked on that line, but I freed him and he swam away just fine. I was going to take a photo, but I figured he'd been left on the hook for long enough. Anyway, I guess it's always a good idea to clean up line left in the water when you come accross it. You never know what you may find at the end of it.

Glad you did what you did! You got a double bonus--cleaned up a bit and released a fish. Thanks!
