He caught another at night with a minner, while crappie fishing. It was 3 reels off the bottom and using a dock piling as its ambush spot. Almost lost a rod. My son was walking towards the bucket to fetch another minner and his rod bent over and got pulled up and nearly over a railing at the dock. He ran back to it and grabbed the handle just in time. Was about another few inches from going all the way over. Nice reflexes son!!!
***and "YES" this slot fish was definitely returned to the water to grow into an over someday. Hope we catch this beast then!!
