Significant Factor(s):

Faith. I knew it was a perfect place and did not give in to the temptation to go somewhere else. My partner and I weighed 25.74 pounds from the one small area. We stayed in that area all day.

The Story:

I saw the fish's back once while she cruised through the area. I believe she had just spawned. She did not take long to land, on her second run she swam right by the boat and I was able to horse her close enough for my partner to get the net under her. We had two sets of hand scales, one read 9.80 and the other read 13.40

Comments:

I caught her at 10:00 a.m. and by the 3:30 weigh in she was so stressed out she was not going to survive, so I had her mounted and she lives in our memory. I never get tired of telling the story of how my partner and I were so excited we could not fish for about a half hour.
