Story: We were having a cookout at some of my church family's house. The invited us to fish so I walk down and actually was bass fishing. I had already caught three bass around a pound. On the next cast, I let the worm fall to the bottom. I decided to let it set for about five to 10 seconds. I went to raise my rod up, but it felt like I was hung up. I pulled on it a little trying to get it un hung. It started to pull back! I know it was 15-to 20 minutes before I saw the fish. I knew what it was then. We got it to the bank and couldn’t get it in the net. I finally got a hold of it and pulled it on to the bank. After taking some pictures I chose to turn him back in. It is THE BIGGEST fish I have ever caught!
