Significant Factor(s):

Taking my time and researching the point and drop off area fully before ever making my first cast. Then using The Finger Rest to be able to feel the bite without hesitation.

The Story:

Letting the jig sit for aprox 5 seconds before each hop, then just moving it 6" at a time. Landing the fish took around 4 minutes. Put it my live well and headed back to the shore line because we left my camera in the truck. Then we took the shot and released her back into Lake Weatherford.
