Kreiger nearly nabs a double-header

Koby Kreiger’s commentary from 8:10 a.m.:

“Oh, that’s a big one!”

“I have two!”

“I have two!”

“I have two!”

“Oh, “I lost one!”

Kreiger, who entered Championship Sunday in third place was throwing a jerkbait on a shallow flat when a big bite quickly revealed itself as twin smallmouth fighting for the morning meal.

After keeping them both buttoned up all the way to boat side, Kreiger knelt to scoop his potential game-changing double-header; but somewhere amid the white water fury, one of the fish escaped its snare.

“I had both in my arms and the one got off.”

The one Kreiger caught weighed 4 pounds. The one he lost looked to be it's equal.

Tennyson told us: ‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Not sure if that applies to smallmouth bass, but it sounds good for a Sunday morning.
