Roumbanis battling grass

1:36 pm CDT, Jun 23, 2013 | By Mark Hicks

Roumbanis is battling the elements as he struggles to catch the kicker bass he badly needs. The wind is bowing his line and his trolling motor frequently bogs down in the grass.

At regular intervals, Roumbanis has to stop casting, hoist his trolling motor and strip 30 pounds of milfoil off of it by hand. He doesn't appear to be frustrated by the annoyance. I suppose anyone that fishes a frog in the slop as much as Roumbanis does is used to it. Just another day at the office for him.
