In Dan's own words
Sixth cast with a Z Claw ( skeletor) Medium size and she hit me very soft 20ft away, I'd absolutely no right to catch this bass as there was only 1 foot of clarity, she gave me a super fight and when I eventually landed her she was only barely hooked ( one hook on the outside). 9 lbs. 8 oz. , my best so far this year. Happy days!
