That happened to me twice. Last week, a big Bass. And once last year, an even larger bass. Oh the hurt from that, lol. Two days ago I got one at 5 1/2 lbs. I decided not to pull her out by the line. I reached down in the water and grabbed her by the gills. So if you don't have a net and you got a big one. Try to reach down in the water and grab them by the gills (not the mouth - unless it's hooked else where).
