Went out fishing this morning before doing yard work and had a blast. I was catching a bunch of small to medium sized crappies, and a few bluegills. Was getting them on a yellow lead head jig with a white twister tail. While bringing one to the bank, a very big bass, maybe 6 to 7 pounds, opened his huge mouth and engulfed the 8 inch crappie only five feet from me. I was using an ultra light rig, and the b [no swearing please] tore line off the spool as he raced for deep water away from the bank. Then, he spit the fish out, and the crappie flew 5 or 6 feet out of the water in the air. I'm sure it had more to do with the tension I had on the line, but it sounds cool to say the b [no swearing please] spit him that far. :D

I brought the crappie in, took him off and released him, but he was so stunned, he just floundered on the surface 3 feet from the bank. Then the b [no swearing please] came back and took him for good. Next week I'm going to head back with some large minnows. ;)
