Significant Factor(s):

Prime time in spring prior to a frontal passage in a known big fish pre spawn area. Big tackle enabled me to get fish out of cover and into open water.

The Story:

We were flipping heavy cover with big line and big baits. Fish hit on a creek channel bend where a small pocket intersected the creek. With heavy line I was able to get her away from the cover and into the creek channel proper so I could back off drag and fight the fish without tearing out the hook. It probably took less than a minute since it was a short stout line in a confined area. I put her into livewell and went to marina for cerification. I released the fish close to the site of the catch.
