Tell us about your catch: I caught this monster bass in a small pond in my neighborhood.  I live in
Columbia and bought a Zebco rod and reel set just after moving into my house
two years ago.  I am not an avid fisherman but I thought I would enjoy
catching small fish out of the pond.  On the morning of 15 April I had been
fishing for about 45 minutes.  I was just getting ready to leave when I
thought I would cast one more time.  This monster bass hit my Wild eyed swim
shad.  It broke my rod and stripped the gears in my reel but somehow I managed to get it in.
