A swing and a miss

"I missed a big one here yesterday," Howell says, pointing ahead of his boat.


He is working a frog over a narrow stretch of grass along a riprap jetty. He swings and misses, reels in quickly and follows up with a Senko. The bass doesn't respond.


The same thing happens a little farther down. Howell has dropped his Power-Poles so he can work on the bass.


"That was a good blow-up," he says. Power-Poles are up. Howell is moving again.
