Nice fish ... what size Stradic is that ?   Cant decided if I want the 500 or 1000

 

This is a 1000, but I have another Stradic 1000 that is bigger. I think Shimano got a little weird with their numbering system. This one probably should've been a 500, like the Vanford.

Fished 8 hrs Saturday and 7 hrs Sunday at a big lake targeting Bass.   Caught 5 Sat and 6 Sunday with biggest only 17 inches.  I don't do well at big lakes and the wind was very strong.  Tourneys are fun though and raise money for good cause.

Tourney results:  Of the 16 entered, top five for best three bass was 58", 54", 52", 51" and my 50".  Bottom seven competitors didn't log a bass!  One entry was only one 8" bass.  So in hindsight, I didn't too bad.    Think I will chase bluefish for a spell.

That's a nice fallfish!

I like your net. I have a C & R net in that material. Love that hooks don't tangle as much as woven cord. Mine is too wide, more challenging to bushwhack, and too shallow, fish literally jump out while I'm trying to unhook. If you don't mind, where did you get it?

VCE turned me onto these on Fleabay . Nice nets for short money . I ended up giving it away and reworked my net to fit my requirements '
