Significant Factor(s):

using very large live wild shiners.

The Story:

Approached the pre-chosen spot quietly and then cast out shiner to swim and cover the area. It was the first cast. As soon as it hit the water the bass ate it down immediately. Once I set the hook it went toward deep water where it tired out easily and took about a minute to land her. After a few quick photos, I released her back to the water.
