Significant Factor(s):

Pre-fish. I always go out a couple of days before a tournament and check out some areas. This creek we were in we stayed all day and never left

The Story:

It took about 5 Min. to get this one to bite but it also took about 3 min. to land and all I could do was sit down because I just knew the fish was going to get off again. My wife had it on twice but lost it and I just knew it was going to happen again.

Comments:

This was a benefit Tournament that My wife and I fish every year. The 5.87 lb does not sound that big, but for Lake Norman it is a few and far between fish. This lake used to be called The Dead Sea but it is coming around some now. We had a total catch of 12.73 and won the tournament but the big fish was the best. PS: Great site and Idea
