Significant Factor(s):

We were sitting on the spot that we felt fish were going be in the morning. I put Kick-N-Bass on my bait to try to intice the fish. I use a fresh perch and made sure it had plenty of leader to move around freely. It was only a few minutes later when she bit.

The Story:

She was caught close to a tree and she really wanted to get back to it so I held on to the line on the reel and didn't let her take any out. Butch moved far enough away from the tree until we felt I could control her. Then I reeled her in and we weighed her. She looked very healthy except for some sores on her so we took her to our tank to treat her.

Comments:

I had her weighed on official scales so that I could inter her in the Big Bass Record Club.
