Kelley Jaye says he has figured out a workaround to deal with his injured hand. His right hand is full of novocaine and isn’t doing what he needs it to.
He is holding the rod between two fingers instead of in the palm of his hand as he jerks and winds his bait over a broad flat.
The technique worked well enough to hook and land a fish, but this one was not quite big enough to go into the livewell. Nevertheless I imagine it gives him confidence he can catch even bigger bass despite his handicap.
