Rook's balancing act

9:10 am EDT, Aug 26, 2012 | By Jim Sexton

Scott Rook just pulled in his fourth keeper. We're a respectful distance away, but we're estimating 9 pounds total.


I'm impressed that he can keep his balance on the heaving boat deck. He's running the trolling motor, casting and reeling adroitly, all while riding up and down like a rodeo cowboy.


Me, on the other hand, I've gotten good at picking up my feet when a wave comes overboard. The feet are still dry. Still have a little coffee in the cup. Will pause to consume.


That's Scott Rook in the distance.
