We've all missed bites. We’ve all had that question, “What if it was a big one? What if it was a 10 pounder?” You’ve felt that tick in your line and swung into nothingness. Where did that fish go? How big was it? It happens. It’s going to happen again. Now in all likelihood, that was probably a 2 or 3 pounder. Generally speaking, a massive bass is going to suck the bait in and you’ll hardly feel it. You’re going to go to move your bait, and there is this dead weight on the end of your line. You always have the chance to swing into a big one. Maybe you will miss a big one or two, but as long as you get back up and keep fishing, you’ve got another chance at a beast.
