Fishing some real shallow ripples for panfish and thought I snagged into a rock. Felt 2 big head shakes and knew I hooked something solid. Nice 3 minute fight on ...more 6lb test, made it hard to bass lift. I had to get in the water and flip him onto the shore. I was alone and had to put the size 13 foot in the pic for perspective.
