|Frog Bass #1|
|Biggest of the day!|
By this time, Jason has had quite a few bites with the pad daddy, but he hasn't actually landed any. I tried to explain the whole waiting concept of frog fishing to him, but he had a couple of things going against him. The first is that he doesn't fish nearly as often as I do and the second is that all the fishing he has done requires a hook set as soon as you have a bite. I kept trying to explain the notion of waiting, but every time he heard that pop, he got excited and set the hook. It was getting to be quite comical after a while. I think the funniest time came when I told him to cast and start working the frog. I then said, "When you hear that pop, I want you to count to 3 and use the one-one thousand, two-one thousand, etc...method." Sure enough he casts, scoots the frog a few times, and then the pop came - and so did the hook set. "Ahhh man! I waited that time too!" Jason says. I start laughing and told him, "WAITED?! You got to one-one tho...and set that hook!" "Dude, that felt like 10 seconds!" he replies. I couldn't help but laugh.
|Fish three and the "Pad Daddy"|
In total for the day - three bass landed, one frog that found the pad daddy so good looking that he attacked it like a pitbull, at least a dozen missed fish and a great time between friends.
