Last-cast heroics

Last-cast heroics? With time about done, Tharp seemed resigned to heading in with the fish he had. Suddenly his rod loaded up and he fought a more-than-solid keeper to the boat that enabled him to cull. The folks on the bridge cheered, and even from a ways away I think I could see the blood flow back into his face. He only has a few minutes before he's due in. Will it be enough, or will the big fish he lost earlier haunt him?
