Washington Bronzebacks
Now that spring has sprung, it's bass time again!
Has anyone else been getting out?

I've been out a couple times on my favorite lake, and the fish did not disappoint!
The sucker spawn is always a favorite of mine. These underappreciated native fish put up a great fight and serve important roles in the ecosystem:

But I mostly go here for the smallies. Numbers of fish up to about 15 inches or so were easy to come by, but it took a bit of searching to find the bigguns. Here's a net-full:

and a lap-full:

And of course the proverbial "Bass Thumb", the very best kind of skin condition!

If anybody else is getting out, I'd love to hear about it!

Great report, thanks for posting it and the pics. That Sucker looks just like the June suckers we have here. Whenever I catch a sucker I save it for bait, bigger trout and catfish love them.
Those are some toad SM, I'm guessing they are at least 3 to 4 lbs but they look even bigger.Cool
