Honestly, I was hoping you would identify that for me. Believe it or not, one guy tried telling me it was a perch. I disagreed, but he said to verify it with the fishing merit badge counselor. I didn't bother.
It really was. I had to do some creative bushwacking to stay out of the water. (I have a medical condition that keeps me out). The fish wanted it brought in fast and quickly shaken. A wise man on here once said, you should never allow the fish to see what the bait is made of. Keep it moving. (Paraphrase) Thanks Ron Krueger, it worked for me.
