Rook behind boat docks

9:18 am CDT, Jun 22, 2013 | By Mark Hicks

We came upon Scott Rook just as he was boating a bass. It allows him to cull. He's fishing a riprap bank behind the docks with a slow bottom bait.

Rook is also casting the same bait to the docks, which are floating over deeper water. Jacobson steps onto the docks to get some close shots of Rook for the gallery.

I turn around and see Cliff Pirch fishing farther down along the same stretch of docks. Pirch is a very capable Western angler. He's also a skilled hunter. He killed a monster elk with a bow last year. He holds up four fingers when asked how many he has in his well.
