Imagine trolling along for any fish willing to bite on a chunk of plastic and steel. Your rod bends violently with a bite. Do you 1) Stop the motor? 2) Slow down? or 3)Keep the same speed? Recently, I think I slowed the motor down and scrambled around for the net, all the while reeling and not letting any slack in the line. When Fishzilla was 10 yards from the boat, he took his second jump and spit out my bait. While the whole experience was a thrill, the fish in the boat was the objective. In retrospect, I am thinking if I kept up the forward speed of the boat, Fishzilla may not have caught up to the boat and returned my lure. Or if I had set a firmer hook......How fast can a 6 lb. LM Bass swim? What are your thoughts?
