Significant Factor(s):

Fishing the right spot, west wind, three days before a new moon. I was throwing a 12" Bass Pro Shops worm, grape in color, that I boiled in salt and garlic.

The Story:

My boat was in 10' of water, casting out to 25. Letting the worm sink all the way down. Then S-L-O-W-L-Y crawl it back to the boat. Took about 4 minutes to land. Measure, weighed a couple of times, took photos of my son holding it. Gave it a kiss and watched her swim away.

Comments:

There is nothing like fishing a BIG worm, when you know your fishing the right spot! This time my son Austin was with me to share the experience.
