Bethel's Matt Roberts is at the dam and has one fish in the boat. He's returned to the spot where he caught his only fish this morning, doing what many are doing: drop shotting brush.
As I was leaving Giarla, who's fishing shallow, a fish inhaled his topwater. Giarla reared back on the fish, only to have it break his line immediately. The worst part? The fish then jumped in an effort to throw the bait. It was every bit of four pounds. "That one hurt," he said.
