Re: The one that got away
The biggest fish of the day often gets away. Happened to me on Friday. My brother and kids came down, and he was really hoping to bring a fish home for the grill. We caught lots of small fish and then finally, I hooked into a nice striper. I love that feeling when a big fish takes your bait - there is no mistake about it! Anyway, I was using the same rig I had used the day before and had caught a whole bunch of small fish. I should have re-tied fresh, but I had gotten lazy. The keeper broke me off and my brother went home empty handed!
