Olen ladannut valikoiman bassovärejä, vuokrannut rantahuoneen ja kalastanut myöhään iltapäivällä, yöllä, predawnilla ja varhain aamulla. Seitsemän tuntia keinotekoisia matoja ryöstettiin monella eri tavalla, topwaters, crankbaits, spinnerbaits, spinners, jigs ja kaikki, mitä minun täytyi osoittaa, oli vain yksi lyhyt lakko Tiny Torpedolle.
