to start the story would be on lake windsor, bella vista AR. 7:00pm fishing for bait. I have used whole fish before and hooked them in places where they will die within an hour or two. But I was using whole bait hooked through the head just before the brains. Not cut bait, a wise man once told me you wanna catch big fish you gotta use big bait. So i was using whole live bait on 50lbs braided spider wire, you know the stuff god would use! fished till 3 with nothing but a few bites. Figured on calling it a night so i went to bed. The next morning I'm awakened by my door being kicked in and my uncle screaming about a monster on the line. Everyone back home said it didnt count if i didnt take pics. so here is the proof
