How I Lost My Favorite Bass Rod

September 2019

Tony Fernandez came back to camp and told the story about a large bass he caught. The bass had just ingested a water snake which was still hanging partially out of its mouth. After extracting the snake from the bass and releasing the fish, Tony set his rod down to get the camera. While his back was turned, a large commotion was heard. Turning around he saw his rod disappear over the side of the boat. Looking down into the water he saw a bass swimming away, trailing his favorite bass rod & reel behind. I wonder if it was the same bass or a different one?
