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.
