Pipkens’ day is not getting any better. After two days of wacking them on his honey hole, it appears as if its dried up. At least for now.
That has to be wearing on him. I would imagine the pressure is starting to ratchet up a bit. It doesn’t help when he hooks up with his first keeper of the day, and starts to swing it in the boat and it comes unbuttoned on the way.
These are the things that can open a flood gate of emotions. From this point on, how Pipkens deals with these things and responds will be a look into his character. We expect he will be just fine emotionally. After all, he did turn a broken collarbone into his best season of his career.
But honey holes drying up and losing fish can make even the strongest of anglers melt a little.
