….Congratulations (again) to FBMoche (Ron Bryant) for accomplishing his second river mission! FBMoche actually just got done accomplishing the “3 Bass Slam” a few days ago and now he has made mincemeat out of the “4 Bass Slam.” Rock on Ron!
Mission Accomplished: “4 Bass Slam’” – Catch four different species of river bass with artificial lures on the same trip.
Date Accomplished: 8-22-09
How he accomplished his mission: Went solo this morning and fished for about 3.5 hours. My very first hook up was a freight train and it was hauling. I landed a 9lb 9oz striper on a Bass Pro Popper (white). I had my casting combo with some heavy braid and this fish was ripping drag. My next fish was a nice 2-13 largemouth on my casting combo who couldn’t resist the Sluggo. The fish that really got me going was this nice 2-2 White Bass. He took a ghost XRAP on my spinning rig.
Once I landed this fish it was time to find Mr. Smallie to complete the Four Bass Slam. I kept working a known smallie hangout with the same XRAP until one showed up. I have never been this nervous trying to land a dink in my life. The missions have added a new twist to my fishing so many thanks to RiverBassin for introducing them. I was hoping to stumble into the 5 Bass Slam but the only way would have been to find a hybrid which I am not sure I have seen one come out of this river.
