Crews’ ugliest hookset in history

John Crews called it “the ugliest hook-set in history,” but it worked out just fine when he boated a 7-pound, 2-ounce bass, which put him over 20 pounds for the day.

“It was almost like I set the hook on a tarpon,” said Crews, after the rod was almost yanked from his hands. “I don’t know what my heart rate is right now but it’s about a thousand beats a minute.”
