Biffle has finally ended a long dry stretch with what looks to be a keeper. He measures the bass and tosses it back. Before making the next cast he runs his line through his fingers to check for nicks.
Biffle swung and missed two times before catching the short bass. With both instances he immediately dropped his Power-Poles, dug out a fresh soft plastic bait and worked the bass over.
Although he was unable to coax a second strike from either bass, the instances clearly demonstrated what a boon Power-Poles are to the Elite pros. At this level of competition, you are severely handicapped if your boat isn't equipped with Power-Poles.
