    Congrats on your first Bass. You trawl a net and you troll a lure.

    I fish because the little voices in my head tell me to

    those banded grunter can be a pain if you're bait fishing. Some of the big bass will eat them, but because they can breed in freshwater, they are out of control. I caught some good bass at Maroon Dam last week. There is a Bluefin Lake Maroon Fishing Classic on 15-17 Nov. Great prizes too.
