The Story:

I was fishing with my bestfriend. I had just caught a 5lb fish. I thought I was hung in grass, but when I got the "grass clump" to the boat, it was a fish. I lost it, we went nuts! I was 19 years old. I went fishing 2 days later and caught an 8.36 and 5 fish over 5lbs. Those were two of the best days of my life. I was just getting into bass fishing. Needless to say, its been downhill ever since! I sure hope to replicate that day soon.
