Significant Factor(s):

Fished the lure extremely slow, counted the lure down to the appropriate depth. Worked a deep water ledge very hard having a history of catching nice bass on it, this however was the first time I had tried a slow rolling spinner on the ledge.

The Story:

Funny thing was my reel popped out of my rod, making it very difficult. I handed my rod to my buddy for a second, then took it back while he grabbed the line with his hands to keep tension on it while I slapped the reel back into the rod. At the first strike I thought I had a 4-5 pounder on, then when she jumped she went to town and put up a great fight. Right after landing her we weighed it. After seeing the weight I decided I was going to have a replica made so we put the fish on a stringer and went over to the truck where I had a tape measure. After some more photos the fish was released.
