Later that night, as we were heading out, Ken asked if I wanted to go back for that bass I missed earlier in the evening. I thought it was too soon, so Ken, George, and I went around Young’s Island instead. That turned out to be a bad decision because we all got skunked.

I did, however, get a bite on the South shore. It hit my bubble gum fluke and I set the hook hard after the afternoon’s miss. In fact, I set it a couple of times just to be sure, but the last two times, the pole was still bent, but the fight stopped. He acted like a log, and in fact it was. The fish creatively hooked my lure around a log and escaped.

Not much could have topped the afternoon’s excitement, but some action would have better than the little we had that night.
