Haven't been fishing for a while now due to Health issues. I finally with some new drugs have my piss and vinegar back, also have two new eyes. I can see now with good clarity at a distance, not so much up close.

So with my new piss and vinegar I decided go do some casting at bon Tempe reservoir. My lure went through some grass that felt like hits, no fight but I could feel heaviness on my line that felt like I had something on my line. What I had was some lost monofilament fishing line. I figured let's get it out of the lake and throw away so no one Else fouled there line in it. So as I was pulling it in all of a sudden I see what looks like a trout coming in with it. Okay I think since it is not fighting it was Dead. So I pick it up thinking I would toss it up the bank for the raccoons to have and evening meal. What I had actually was one of the biggest lures I have ever seen for fishing in A small reservoir like bon Tempe. The biggest fish in that reservoir would more than likely be a large mouth bass probably not more then five or six pounds.
Whoever was using it most of had a lot of expectation for Moby Dick or A Great White shark, here are some photos of it.

Hey Little Wolf, welcome back. Glad you got some spunk back and can get out again. If you want someone to take the Moby Dick lure off your hands, let me know. I bass fish Clear Lake sometimes and might find a use for it.

They use those to scare the fish to the other side of the lake. Then run around to the other side and catch the fish lol.

So they are like Herd Dogs but for fishing Egg? Then go over to other side and use conventional bait. I think small ones could work well. I have brads super bait for Salmon. They open. Look like a plug cut herring. but they are plastic. You put scent ( tuna ) in them for scent. Do those have a scent trap area on them? I am thinking of getting some of the electric type. Look like fun.

When cleaning a 4 lb. Walleye I found a Largemouth in it's stomach that measured 12 inches and the tail had been digested and was missing. A 2 lb. Bass would not have a problem downing a bait fish that size . We fish Small mouth on the Mississippi River with the large size Zara Spooks and catch 8 to 10 in Smallies with them . Many times I have caught smaller Bass with the tail of a big bait fish almost showing outside their lips . Studied some fish I caught and placed in a large aquarium , at times they would gobble something and it would take a full day to get it down , would swim around with half of lunch hanging out of their mouth !

I had an Oscar that choked to death on a catfish that was as long as he was.

Looks like a trout bait that was made specifically for Castaic lake or one f those super deep california lakes that hold double digit bass...thats what they were feeding on once upon a time. I dont know about now, but i'd keep it for the hell of it, especially what you went thru to get it!
