Subject: Lake Fork Whopper
We headed out early on that rainy Saturday in September. It was the weekend
before the McDonald's Splash. We thought we'd get in some prefishing
time. Robbie Bracey (my teammate) and I (Mike Howell) started fishing the
banks, no luck there. We went on to the humps and points. Around noon we went
into a cove and fished the treetops. I was using a 7ft Allstar with 12lb.
P-Line. I decided on a Lake Fork Red Orange Ambush Lure and added some Kick 'n
Bass Garlic scent. I cast several times to see what kind of presentation
was needed. I did a slow roll retrieve, She popped it, and the fight
was on. We weighed her at 10.1.I released her at the same spot hoping I
could catch her again for the Splash. As hard as I tried I didn't see
her. Maybe next time.
