Catching Big Bass on Frogs

It was a beautiful day on Lake Peckerwood and we were targeting largemouth bass using frogs around lilly pads. I made a cast towards a stretch of lilly pads and the water exploded, so I set the hook and reeled him in next to the boat and without pause I boat flipped him thinking that it might be a three pounder, but it was actually a five pounder. Under normal circumstances your rod, reel or line would brake from boat flipping a fish that large, and that is one reason I use Lews rod and reels because they are very durable. Credit must be given also to the Berkley Braid fishing line on my spool.
