Significant Factor(s):

I worked the grub real slow. So slow I think I was taking a nap. I barely moved grub one nudge and boom, she woke me up real quick.

The Story:

It was about 2 in the morning on a Friday. It was very cloudly and we ad caught fish all night. We were getting ready to leave and I thought just one more pitch to this tree. We had already caught 3 fish off of it. Shook it about twice at bottom and she hit it like a shot. I banged her as hard as I could and she did not move. Finally she took off running at the boat. I really had to crank. When I got her in the boat she was like a football. After taking all the measurements, we put her back.

Comments:

Go slow It is so addictive.
