Evers gets his hands wet

12:04 pm CDT, Sep 22, 2012 | By Steve Bowman

We just saw a classic Evers move. He set the hook in a laydown and apparently the fish wrapped him up. He quickly shed his jacket and shirt and hit the deck. But by the time he got his hands in the water, the fish had pulled off.
These fish seem to be swatting at the bait. The last few he's brought to the boat the hooks have been on the outside of the mouth.
"I've never seen anything like it," Evers groaned.
He's putting fish in the boat but the majority of the bites are winning. He still has three keepers for 6 pounds or more.
