The Story:

I was running down the lake to get a signal on my cell phone, waiting on a call. The best signal is on the main lake. I knew these brush piles were planted on an old road bed. I just started flipping. When she hit, my cell phone started ringing, so I put her in the boat and answered the phone. I know the fish is not that big, but in West Virginia a trophy fish is only 5 pounds. The person who called is now my wife.
