I set the hook. Knew I had fish. Then thought I was stuck on the bottom. Confused...I realize that I am moving down the river with this thing and thought I had ...more a world record of some species on since it was heavy as a truck at 30 ft and it was pulling every now and then so I knew it was something alive even though it didn't feel right.
In the end it's a 6 inch smallmouth in a 30 ft hunk of hydrilla I couldn't even pick up and put in the boat for a pic so I left 2/3 of it hanging in the water.
