I made a cast to smallie out in the main current and a 20lb (min) made its leisurly departure from under my rod tip (son of a ......!)
That sounds familiar! Isn't it amazing that such a large fish can be so hard to see? (even when you *know* it's there!)
Just gotta keep trying 'til you find one that will cooperate!
