Well, so his name is Andrew and not 'David'. I still think the title above fits pretty good!!

He's 4-1/2 years old and weighs in at a fairly light 35, or so, pounds. And, Andrew Morrissette recently accomplished what most grown-up anglers have never done - he landed a 9-pound largemouth bass. On top of that, he got his trophy from a northeastern State where bass of that size are extremely rare.

On the 1st of June, Andrew and his Dad, Gary, took a trip to Darrah Pond in New Hampshire. Mom, Kim, and sister, Jessica, decided to stay home and let the 'men of the house' chase after the fish. Armed with a Rapala minnow and a yellow grub, they proceeded to catch some small fish. Andrew had no trouble with that and proudly displayed his first fish for the camera.

After a short period with no strikes, Dad switched Andrew over to the Rapala minnow. In a few casts, Andrew called out that he was hung up. But, then, the snag started to SWIM. Suddenly, all dickens broke loose and the big bass busted the surface trying to rid itself of the Rapala. Andrew hung right in there and, with a little help from Dad to keep from being pulled into the water, eventually dragged the giant fish up on the sandy shore.

This time, Andrew said he was afraid of the fish because it was so big, and Gary could not coax him close enough to be in the picture with it. So, all we see in the photo is a giant bass and Andrew Morrissette's boots.

But, all ended well for everyone. The big sow bass was released and Andrew got his pictorial proof of the catch of a lifetime. Who knows - maybe he and the bass will meet again when BOTH are older and bigger!!!

A common question that we get: "Is there somewhere close to get bait and tackle?" This is where we get our bait.
