Billy Bones Shiner Hunts Down a 11lb Bass

Wayne Hunter Catches a Eleven Pound Bass

“The Bass Master” Wayne Hunter from Florida caught this nice 11lb bass.

Size: 11lbs

Length: 25″

Girth: 20.2″

Bait: Billy Bones Magic Shiners

Rod&Reel: Wright and McGill, addictive spinning combo

Line: FINZ

Hook: Mustard

Lake: Port St Lucie Canal

Time: 3:30pm

Weather: Sunny

Date: 03/21/11

I was casting on one rod with my weedless lizard when I noticed my Wright McGill pole, that I had my shiner on it, shot towards the water. I darted towards the pole and started the fight. By the fight and weight on the poll I thought I had a small alligator. My line then went right into the lilly pads and I knew then I had a monster. I almost lost it during the fight, I then loosened my drag and let it ride for a couple minutes. Finally after 5 minutes I pulled this 11lb Large mouth bass on the bank and was very proud of this catch from a little canal in Port St. Lucie.
