Being in the right place at the right time using the right bait.

The Story:

I hiked about 25 min to get to the cove I was fishing. Was making long casts up shoreline. Saw a small stickup out away from shore. Cast past it and let the Senko sit for about 30 sec. Picked it up once and let it sink. Fish ate it. Took me about 5 minutes to land. A guy in a boat was fishing up the bank a ways. He came over an helped me weigh it and snap some pictures. Fish was released. Was so excited after I didn't get any more bites that day, but I didnt care.
