Hey, I went fishing out on the canaan River today with my step uncle. after fishing for a while he caught some shad and a bass, and I still never caught anything. We moved to a new spot and to my suprise, I hooked into the biggest bass I have seen in person. I hooked in to what looked to be and felt to be a 5 + pound smallmouth after it jumped really high out of the river. I fought him for a bit and he came right close to shore. Me being extremely excited I lifted my rod and the top part seperated from the base of my rod and my jig came out of his mouth. After Reassembling my rod i proceded to fish, but only caught a really nice size perch about 12 inches long. There were nice bass jumping all day, some could have been bigger than the one I had on but they just dont bite. So I reccomend all you bass fishermen to go try canaan river, you may hook into a nice bass like I did, just be sure to take your time cause I know I sure didnt.
