  fish size is like ...

.... rolling dice when it comes to using plastic worms , probably when using anything . It's the same worm used in the same way in the same fishin place , and the Largemouth bass can run the gamit of all the possible sizes , so when a smaller one bites , it's just because he found it first I guess ... when a 4-6 lb. one bites , guess it was his turn . Then there is that rare monster , a real bucket mouth size that you find once in a blue moon , the stuff of legend and myth . You just never know what size will bite next !!

Another thing about size is whatever the lake holds mostly avg. size wise is what you'll likely catch most of . This small reservoir we fished last Fri. had an avg. size of 16"-18" bass . I say that because that's what we caught the most of , with a couple smaller and one big one . Pretty much always the same story there .

Another pond we fish now and then has 12"-13" avg. bass , tons of them , but holds some 5 lb. and even the possible lunker in the there . It's all good fishin if you're hookin up .

Most of my Largemouth bassin is in my home state , MD. , and I would say a 5-6 lb. is a pretty big one around the places we catch them . I've run across the rare much larger ones before , but like I said , it's once in a blue moon .

We have or had a patch size for MD. , and that was 5 lb. ... way back when I used take the bass in and get it weighed if was a 5-6 lb. , after a few patches I stopped doing that . I toss them all back in now , even a fish that might weigh 7-8 lbs. . I've only caught one from MD. that made the 10 lb. range (most likely) and it broke off on an ariel break water stunt ... still cool though .

Fishin in Fl. lakes you can catch 5 lb.'ers all day long , places in TX. a 10 lb. bass is considered avg. ... so the where is another determining factor . I'm happy with my home waters , a lot of it is antisapation and just being there anyway , right ??

Still , the plastic worm is a winner and a presentation I'll always have faith in .

I got a friend who uses the 4" worm hooked crazy style in the middle w/o any weight , and he catches good bass on it too ... I haven't tried it but might someday (who knows) , works well for him anyway .

For me it's the 7" purple twister tail , old habbits die hard you know !!

An old motto of mine that I made up eons ago is ... "the more your line is in the water , the more fish you'll catch" ... I haven't been living by that motto much this year , but experience still pays off , luckily , smiles and tight lines to you all .
