Significant Factor(s):

Trying all different types of strategies Ive learned,and applying myself.

The Story:

Before the catch,I had been catching lots of little Bass. So,when I felt the bite,I expected it to be another little one. But,when I saw him come out of the water I knew he wasn't little. I was swimming the lizard very slow, About 3 or 4 feet under the water. It took me about 5 minutes to get him in. After I landed him I took him off the hook and gave it to the guide to weigh. I wasn't surprised when he said it weighed 7.1 pounds as big as it was. Then after we took pictures we let him go.

Comments:

Later that day,I caught a 5.11 lb Bass off of a rock cliff. I was using the same bait and strategies.
