We just caught up with Scott Rook. I wrote earlier that he has lost three nice size fish today. Rook told us that for two of the losses the line had been cut. He believes he dragged the line across zebra mussels, which sliced or weakened the line.
He has been suffering through a long, slow period, but seemed relaxed about it now. "I caught three of my best fish in the afternoon yesterday," Rook said.
