Story: I was fishing the milfoil weeds on Currituck Sound with a 1/4-oz. Silver Minnow. I hooked a big fish, but I could not reel it in due to the milfoil. The fish then swam towards the anchor line. I tried to turn the fish and it worked as the fish turned and swam towards the boat. My friend Paul was in the boat with me and got the net. I asked him to put the net into the water and the big bass swam right into it! It was a nice 8-pound largemouth bass! Paul was the person that took the picture.
