The day was going well even before the big fish, we both had a few on the surface, I found the Z-Claw was nailing them, but Bob jumped between the Z-Claw and Patchinko. The wind was picking up, then dropping off, making it awkward when setting the boat up for the drift, as we knew where the fish were but the wind seemed to be on the bass's side. Still we continued, and picked a fish out on every drift, which is great.
A nice 5 minutes gave me two bass in two casts.
And then one of 4lb 5oz next castWe had about 9 bass in a frew hours, a nice mornings fishing, or should I say "bumbling".
Then this happened!!! In all the excitement I didnt take any photos, I cant believe I didnt take any, its really bugging me that I didnt and I feel really bad for it. We were so shocked, Bob and I had shaking knees for ten minutes after the bass was returned. We got it on video though, well most of it, the first initial run was about 60ft of high speed Van Staal clutch running like he had hooked a passing waterskier!! So enjoy the video.
