Significant Factor(s):

Putting the right bait in front of the right fish at the right time

The Story:

We were leaving an area that was being heavily fished and I was working the bank on the way out. I passed three boats along the bank and was coming up on three more. I was about to pull up and leave and decided to pitch at the last cypress tree. I pitched at the base of the tree and had to adjust the boat (because of the wind). When I picked up the slack she was just there (never felt the strike). I was fighting the fish and the wind and never got to see the fish until Wess netted her. After he got her in the net I couldn't beleive my eyes we both grabbed the net and sat down in the botton of the boat for a few minutes

Comments:

We were fishing a tournament and by the time I was able to get the fish weighed in she was heavily stressed and clearly was not going to make it
