      Morris I got some tips from an old timer down here and he suggested the technique. It really works.

      Morris, A blind hog finds a root every once in a while. lol No really i was hohoing a lip-less crank bait, something new to me and to my amazement on the third cast ...more of the afternoon this ole girl bit. It was a heck of a fight for a few minutes there. I needed a net man since I lost a rod sleeve in the process of getting the net. It was well worth it though.
