At 8:35 pm I casted to the edge of the lilly pads next to shore where i had been catching several small bass.As soon as the spinnerbaithit the water the hit came suddenly and viloently. The fish made giant runs like a pike and I thought it was one for sure. After a 2 minute battle the bass showed itself and I knew instantely it was the biggest bass i have ever hooked. With no net I lipped it and couldnt believe how big it was.
