Rook loses another good fish

10:09 am EDT, Aug 25, 2012 | By Steve Bowman

Rook's big fish woe's continue. He just hooked up and lost a 3 1/2-pounder. That's his third of the morning.


You can hear him over the waves and wind and he's not happy at the moment. These fish are simply coming unbuttoned. And he's having a time trying to understand why.

From this angle the hook set looks great. But with the boat bobbing up and down, he may be lacking the oomph needed. Who knows?


Regardless, Rook seems to be on the right type of fish to make a move. But those three fish will likely haunt him for at least the rest of the day.
