Robert Early Woodard does it different.
Woodard owns a private 5-acre lake in in Blountsville, Alabama. After hours of attempting to catch the biggest fish in his lake he decided to do something less conventional. He wanted to discover what would happen when this monstrous bass was faced with human evolution. Bait in hand, Robert dropped to the dock and plunged his arm into the water.
Suddenly a massive fish tries to pull him in
In a split second both of Robert’s hands are pulled under the water as he desperately tries to grasp his underwater assailant. He struggles with twenty seconds of pure fight, his hopes in his hands. Robert’s friend helps ground himself on the dock, with his newfound leverage, Robert wrangles this monster out of the water.
That’s a biggie! Look at her mouth! Oh, my goodness!”
Woodard pulled of something pretty amazing. Coming in at just over 16 pounds (16.03lbs) he had good reason to tell his buddy to “Run and get the scales.”
“16.03 by hand. This is the way it was, the way they caught ’em back then.”
Now that’s a return to form we can all learn from.
