Whopper Bass at VanderYacht Park
So, I just bought my fishing license for the first time (2 weeks prior to this fishing adventure). I went to the local community park called VanderYacht Park. A friend of mine had told me that there's some pumpkinseed and bluegill in the small pond there at the park.
I had caught maybe like 4-5 bluegill and pumpkinseeds. But then, when I casted out and was reeling in a small bluegill, all of a sudden I felt my line get grabbed. So I tugged hard to set the hook. Unbeknownst to me, I wasn't sure what I had caught yet.
I initially thought it was a catfish, but when it rolled it's belly across the surface of the water, I knew it was a big largemouth bass.
