"It's been a long time since I've been on a lake where you got this many bites," said Bill Lowen, who has rounded off the bill on his square-billed crankbait while working his way down a rocky bank.
Lowen just caught a 2-pound smallmouth that allowed him to cull up a few ounces. He guesses he's got about 12 pounds now.
"They hit so hard you don't know how big they are until you see them," Lowen said.
Lowen has caught five fish since we've been watching him, and we're getting ready to move on.
