Significant Factor(s):

I have been practicing a lot of techniques for catching bigger fish in my pond

The Story:

I was walking around the pond and witnessed a nice bass swimming around right on the edge of cattails. Ran to the house and got my rod. Caught a nice size bluegill on worm on a separate pole, hooked the bluegill with a monster hook right through the back tossed it out there and kept it close to shore. The smaller bass tried to take it but couldn't. Then I watched the cattails split apart and the bluegill disappeared. Set the hook and took about 30 seconds to reel in. Took pictures, length and weight, then let it loose.
