Significant Factor(s):

Made a good cast to an area I felt should hold a fish. Gave myself an opportunity to catch a fish with a good cast.

The Story:

I set the hook on the fish and didnt think much of it because it swam straight towards the boat. Got it toward the side of the boat and still hadnt seen it, then it decided it was going to peel some line, told my partner, buddy this is a good fish, I had never had one take drag on my baitcaster (Drop and winch). Fought the fish for about 5 more minutes and then partner lipped it into the boat, took a picture and weighed it and immediately released it back into the same spot it was hooked.
