Significant Factor(s):

Big lures, catch big bass. All i have to say.

The Story:

I was casting to a sunken tree on a submerged hump in a private pond. I was slow-rolling the bait when the fish struck.I didnt think she was over 6 or 7 pounds until she got close to the boat. Then she "woke up." It took about 3 minutes on 12 lb. test to get her in the boat. I took her to the house, measured her, snapped some pictures, and put her back.
