We followed Card out to a rocky point that he is fishing with some type of cast-and-wind bait, maybe a swimming jig.
Card tells us he just caught his fifth bass, a small keeper. Then he sets the hook on a better fish, promptly boats it and puts his Power-Poles down, so he can cull while staying put. Card says he has over 11 pounds in the box.
He culls a bass and hooks another one on his first cast. It allows him to upgrade by a few ounces.
