Significant Factor(s):

My dad fell out of the boat about an hour befors I caught him I think he might of woke him up. The water tepm was about 52 so he was freezing, It was a funny site watching him dog paddle back to the boat. The same day I had a largemouth on that was about 9 lbs but broke me off on the hook set but the fish broke water three times trying to throw my jig so we did see him.

The Story:

I was fishing a drop off, the boat was sitting in 15 feet of water, I was casting to the shallows bring it out off the drop off there was a weed edge there also. I weighed him and released it right away.
