Caught at Scalley lake (a private lake w/ a campground that rents boats). I caught this fish at Scalley Lake not Murray lake... I can't change it for some reason. I made a ~50ft cast parallel to the shore and the break w/ a 1/2oz Chatterbait w/ a custom bluegill pattern skirt and Arkansas shad color zoom superfluke Jr. as a trailer (With the fat part of the belly cut off.) I let the lure sink a second until I thought it was in the tops of the weeds. I reeled up the slack and popped it out of the weeds along the middle of the break, the break goes from about 4ft to 10ft of water. A moment (3-4ft) after the lure straightened out on the retrieve the lure stopped vibrating and I couldn't feel it .. But, the line had jumped and was moving fast out to deeper water (to my left). Great fight, I was very careful fighting and landing the fish. I couldn't see the lure until the bass came out from under the boat. I had it hooked through the bone front center of it's upper mouth, almost nose area.
