Hey, GM, great news, thanks for the report. Couldn't get out, or yesterday would have been a yak day for me for sure.
I bet this morning will be a beach day to remember - would SURELY get out, except I am tethered again.
16 # and 27"? That sounds like one FAT bass. I generally equate 15# to about 33-34". These guys must be pigging out on all that bait.
