This weekend we ventured out to a place called Independence Grove, about 40 minutes from where we live. Apparently a forest preserve with gigantic bass and lots of it. We met up with friends on Saturday and... we actually caught nothing. But let us not dwell on the negative. SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY. We set out for revenge and headed over to IG where, for the first time this season, I caught me a bass!! (so did my husband, but his was itty bitty ;P) It was twilight, and the day was about to end again in failure, when at last I got a hit and was able to pull this sucker in. Not the largest of monsters, but a well fought one. My first fish with a plastic worm. So happy!
