He caught five bass weighing 20.64 pounds. He anchored his bag with a 5.77 pound kicker. “I like to night fish and I knew we would take off early enough to catch some fish first thing this morning using a black spinner bait so I took advantage of that. Once the sun got up, I started throwing a jig and a swimbait on ledges anywhere from 15-25 foot of water,” stated Robertson.
