I fished today with Rich Nelson Jr, his son James pictured here, and his dad Rich Senior.
We worked hard to catch bass in very tough windy conditions.
James boated this 20 pound bass and what was amazing was the fish had a rock the size of my fish in his gut. James is holding it in his left hand.
I have heard stories about bass eating rocks to give them stability in stormy weather or accidentally eating one when rooting for crabs in the sand. This is the first time I have personally seen it in thousands of bass that I have caught. I guess this was a true "Rockfish".
An interesting day on the water.
