DeFoe loses a lunker

9:01 am CDT, Sep 22, 2012 | By David Hunter Jones

Ott DeFoe has yet to register a bite on Lake Decatur. In typical DeFoe fashion, he's tossing small crankbaits, spinnerbaits and pitching a small black-and-blue jig to laydowns. As I write this, DeFoe hooked into a solid keeper. This wasn't the kind of fish you "ski" to the boat; he was playing it alongside his boat when it popped off. "No!" DeFoe hollered, as he slumped to the deck, crouching and holding his head. I sure hope that one doesn't come back and bite him later.
