“I’ve lost the first three big ones I’ve hooked, not a good start,” said Chris Johnston. Granted, he said that as he was sliding a 4-pounder into his livewell. That gives him three keepers. And I’m not going to guess what they weigh. The 4-pounder he just caught looked like a 2-pounder from my vantage point. Interestingly, he sight-casted to the latest addition to his livewell. We’ve seen him do that a couple times. He’s making long casts and evidently getting followers, switches rods, and makes a short pitch to the fish. His last bait-and-switch worked perfectly.
